The Pre1A class of Cheder Ohr Menachem celebrated their Siddur Party on Sunday, starting with davening their first tefillah near the Rebbe’s room, and continuing with a celebration in Eshel Hall.

There was loads of excitement felt in Pre1Alef of ‘Cheder Ohr Menachem’ leading up to this very joyous day. From the beginning of the year, talmidim mastered Kriah – the foundation of all Limud HaTorah, with their dedicated melamed Rabbi Yitzchok Fuchs.

This special day began with a farbrengen hachana with the Menahel Rabbi Menachem Yusewitz before their first tefilla in their new siddur in Gan Eden Hatachton, near the Rebbe‘s holy room at 770 Eastern Parkway. The tefilla was followed by joyous dancing in 770’s main shul and then to the special ceremony in Eshel Hall.

Greeting the parents was Rabbi Zalman Goldstein who emceed the ‘Mesibas Siddur’ event.

The children then received Birkas Kohanim from the Menahel Hamosdos Rabbi Menachem Mendel Hakohen Hendel followed by singing and dancing. Each boy then received their very own siddur and a piece of a specially made cake from their melamed.

“The talmidim came out of the event eagerly looking forward to a lifelong journey of limud hatorah with the strong foundations of yiras shamayim,” Rabbi Yusewitz told Anash.org. “They are already davening and storming the heavens to bring the hisgalus of the Rebbe now!”
