Since its launch last week, the “A Special Anniversary” – celebrating 90 years of Yud Daled Kislev – curriculum has been met with major success with over 80 schools and 16,430 children benefiting from it in just 6 days! Now available for YOUR school and YOUR family!
Schools across the world from Australia to Postville, Los Angeles to Paris, have used it to bring the details of the Rebbe’s wedding to life for children and teens giving each student an understanding and appreciation of this year’s important milestone anniversary and how it personally impacts each of them as Chassidim.
Though Yud Daled Kislev is already upon us, it is not too late for teachers and principals to bring the curriculum to their schools! Download it here.
The curriculum was developed under the guidance of Rabbi Elkanah Shmotkin at JEM, and written by Mrs. Devora Krasnianski, in conjunction with Vaad Or V’chom Hahiskashrus. The project was spearheaded by Rabbi Mendel Shemtov.
“The ‘A Special Anniversary’ curriculum not only crystallized the entire story of the Rebbe’s Chasuna to the Talmidim, it also gave them an understanding and appreciation of what transpired and what the significance of the day is,” shared Rabbi Yehoshua Lustig, principal at Oholei Torah. “Following the presentation, the talmidim were inspired to take upon themselves a new Hachlata as a gift to the Rebbe in honor of the milestone anniversary.”
Download today a beautiful multimedia presentation that in just 20 minutes will give your students a complete and inspiring account of the Rebbe and Rebbetzin’s wedding that is sure to inspire them and give them a meaningful experience of hiskashrus to the Rebbe.
