Join live at 2:00 pm EST: Just like in the days of Mordechai and Esther, children will gather for Torah, prayer, and Tzedakah in a special program featuring Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum, Chuck the Ventriloquist, a trivia game with Rabbi JJ Duchman, and more.
On the first Taanis Esther more than two thousand years ago, the Jewish people heeded the call of Queen Esther to unite in fasting and prayer for three days and nights, to avert Haman’s death decree against the Jews. Mordechai took this opportunity to gather thousands of Jewish children in study and prayer. Our Sages say that it was this gathering of the 22,000 children that began the unfolding of our Salvation.
Using the same tools as Mordecai and Queen Esther to unleash Hashem’s mercy, we know that Torah study and prayer, especially when done by children, will hasten the arrival of Moshiach.
To this end, this Taanis Esther February 25th, at 2:00 pm EST, there will be a LIVESTREAM video for children. It will feature Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum, Chuck the Ventriloquist, Rabbi Yoey Muchnik’s one-man band, a trivia game with Rabbi JJ Duchman, The Leeds boys, and more!
This Taanis Esther gathering will begin a campaign s that includes 40-days of opportunities to be counted in the 22,000, to make more Children’s Geula Gatherings consisting of Torah, prayer, and Tzedakah. The campaign runs until a few days after Pesach, 24 Nissan, April 6th.
According to Mrs. Tiferes Cahman, from Los Angeles, California, the founder of the Children’s Geulah Gatherings, today we have the opportune time. “The situation in the world today is in such urgent need right now. We know what can change everything. All it takes is for us to imitate Mordechai in gathering the children. He knew the secret to redemption was uniting Jewish children in Torah and prayer. We have the opportunity now, to do the same and bring salvation to our world.”
During the past two Children’s Geulah Gathering campaigns, over 60,000 Jewish children of all backgrounds joined in this global project! With your help, we will once again meet or exceed our goal of 22,000 children, joining participants from organizations like, Tzivos Hashem, Shuvu Schools, Jewish Girls Unite, Power of Unity, and ATARA.
This campaign is inspired by the Lubavitcher Rebbe who constantly implored that gatherings of children mirroring Mordechai’s gathering should take place to annul the Hamans of our modern-day world.
The CGG has also prepared beautiful resources for you to choose from including an inspiring original song about the children of the Megillah in English, Hebrew, and Yiddish, a learning booklet, a Mitzvah pledge raffle, and a Welcome Moshiach art collection/raffle, and more!
