As part of the Bat Sheva Tanya Baal Peh campaign, a large group of United Lubavitcher Yeshiva students were rewarded for learning whole perokim as well as lines of Tanya by heart.
For a number of years, Rabbi Mordechai and Mrs. Shterney Kanelsky of the Bris Avrohom Center in Hillside, New Jersey, have been encouraging extra learning and Mitzvas to be done in honor of their infant daughter, Bas Sheva, OBM, who passed away in 2003.
One of the projects is to have the Talmidim of the Yeshivos study Tanya Ba’al Peh.
Once again this year, the Kanelskys came to ULY-Crown St., to award all those who participated in this wonderful Mivtza with certificates, monetary rewards and Seforim.
Rabbi Simpson, Principal of the Yeshiva, who tests all the boys personally and keeps on encouraging the students, addressed the audience with warm words. The boys listened attentively as Rabbi Simpson explained the importance and the impact the holy words of Torah have.
Rabbi Kanelsky, who came with his wife from NJ, also addressed the crowd. He thanked the teachers and especially Rabbi Simpson for being the ones behind this special campaign.
