The ‘Hanachos’ program, which encourages bochurim to watch sichos of the Rebbe and to summarize them, has launched for the fifth consecutive year in 20 Mesivtas across America.
The Vaad Hatmimim, in partnership with JEM, has launched the Hanachos program for the fifth consecutive year in 20 Mesivtas across America.
The aim of the program is to prepare bochurim for Gimmel Tammuz by encouraging them to watch farbrengens of the Rebbe and summarize the Sicha in their own words. The program is designed to gradually increase in difficulty over the course of several weeks, culminating in the viewing of a thirty-minute video in the final week.
For bochurim who are not used to watching farbrengens or lengthy videos of the Rebbe, the Hanachos program serves as a valuable resource, motivating them to focus on understanding the Rebbe’s message.
Each week, two videos of the Rebbe are shown in Yeshivah, with the length of the videos gradually increasing in duration.
Successful completion of the Hanachos program is rewarded with a prize of $50 to $100 in Kehos, depending on the level of the program. In addition, the top three bochurim with the highest marks will be awarded the complete set of Toras Menachem.
Many bochurim have expressed their gratitude for the Hanachos program, stating that it has enabled them to follow and understand farbrengens of the Rebbe for the first time. Parents and hanhala members have also praised the program for its role in involving bochurim in the Rebbe’s teachings while also helping them develop valuable skills for the future.
Hanachos is a project of the Vaad Hatmimim in partnership with JEM, directed by Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Altein along with Mendel Goldman, Berel Marozov, Levi Shemtov, and Levi Bendet, the shluchim in all 20 participating Yeshivas and the JEM team led by Rabbi Elkanah Shmotkin and Mendel Gourarie.
