Grand Hachnasa L’cheder at United Lubavitcher Yeshivah
Over 50 children were introduced to cheder in United Lubavitcher Yeshivah’s Hachnasa L’cheder event, “arainfirenish.” Fathers and mothers arrived with their young sons wrapped in talleisim. The Hachnasa L’cheder was led by renowned mechanech Rabbi Chaim Levi Goldstein, author of the comprehensive Hachnasa L’cheder Guide. Rabbi Goldstein explained that this Minhag is a segulah for a child to grow up to be a Talmid Chochom.
Each child was presented with his own inscribed honey cake, an egg with special pesukim, and the Sha’ar Blatt of Tanya with honey. An interactive slideshow helped the children find each letter of the Aleph Beis in their page of Tanya. The boys licked the honey from the letters, introducing them to the sweetness of Torah. The children were showered with sweet candies from Malach Michoel. The children then ate the holy letters of their delicious honey cakes and eggs.
At the conclusion of the event, families took photos at the photo booths to remember this milestone event.
The magnificent event was arranged by Rabbi Chaim Mayzlesh and Rabbi Yisroel Langsam, in memory of Rabbi Katzen OBM, who ran the Hachnasa L’cheder in Lubavitcher Yeshiva for decades. It was an unforgettable experience filled with Kedusha and Nachas.
