Yeshivas Ohr Elchonon Chabad, what the Rebbe called a Migdal Ohr, stands tall as a tower of light for our present and future. Without oil, we cannot be the Ohr we have to be for our students.
As we elevate from Yud Tes Kislev to Chof Kislev to Chanukah, picture every one of your children as a Menorah whose entire essence of being is to emanate light.
(It’s not so hard to picture. Every one of us is one such Menorah.)
You see your child, yourself, your Menorah standing tall and proud. Many branches, many midos, many attributes, strengths, and capabilities extend outward, reaching to infinite places. The cups, the keilim crown each branch, waiting to be filled with boundless passion and energy.
The wicks, the material of life, have been formed into a conduit for something beyond matter.
The match is ready to strike. The night is ready to light. The world is ready to ignite.
Only one thing is missing.
The purest, most refined, most soulful contribution of all.
The fuel. The oil.
Without fuel, a Menorah cannot be the Ohr it was born to be.
Yeshivas Ohr Elchonon Chabad, what the Rebbe calls a Migdal Ohr, stands tall as a tower of light for our present and future.
Without oil, we cannot be the Ohr we have to be for our students. This is why we have launched the Our Ohr campaign.
כי נר מצוה ותורה אור
Giving is a candle. Learning is light.
Torah is Ohr. Mitzvah is Ner. The Mitzvah of Tzedakah is the candle, the oil that fuels our future.
