The 7th grade of Lubavitcher yeshiva 7th grade marked the end of a year of Mishmar with a celebration on Thursday. It was a culmination of an extraordinary year with unique challenges.
The Mishmar program takes place every Thursday where the boys learn a Sicha with an older bochur learning in Oholei Torah Zal. This gives the boys a special taste of the exciting aspects of yeshiva which they will be joining in the coming years.
With the outbreak of corona, Mishmar was moved over to zoom where the boys continued to learn with their chavrusas, some of which were in different countries and time zones. As the year came to a close, the board of Mishmar decided to end the year with a grand annual banquet despite the difficult situation.
“If there is one lesson to learn from the older bochurim, it is their dedication. They weren’t paid to do this, but nevertheless came to help the 7th graders who will soon be starting their yeshiva lives in the coming future” said Shimon Lishner, the director of this year’s Mishmar
Rabbi Simpson, the dean of Lubavitcher yeshiva stated, “It is so nice to see the boys come during their free time to learn a Sicha of the Rebbe”
The boys were each given a special Mishmar Yarmulka and a Likutei Sichos dictionary to help them in their future years of learning. In addition, the older bochurim were given a Mishmar mug, a small appreciation of their work and dedication for the last few months.
