Over 50 educators gathered in Crown Heights, and many more joined online, for a double program of learning and inspiration, arranged by Igud Hamelamdim in honor of Hei Teves.
Over 50 Crown Heights educators gathered in the kollel building, as well as many others who joined online, for a double event marking 35 years of Hei Teves, arranged by Lubavitch Chinuch organization Igud Hamelamdim.
The event began with an hour of Chavrusa learning, topped off with a captivating presentation by Chief Librarian of the Rebbe’s Library and author of numerous Seforim, Rabbi Sholom Ber Levine.
“The Rebbe’s words from Hei Teves, 5748 that ‘true evidence of Didan Notzach, the victory of the Seforim, is through increasing Torah learning, particularly with a chavrusa’ was the impetus for arranging this event,” explained Igud Hamelamdim Director, Rabbi Avrohom Bluming.
Rabbi Levine’s presentation was unique. He began by recounting the Rebbe’s declaration that the day of Hei Teves will eternally be an auspicious date for wonders in regard to Seforim. “And this year,” he explained with excitement, “I’ve seen four wondrous occurrences regarding the seforim of the Rebbe’s Library, transpire right now and within the recent few weeks leading up to this Hei Teves!”
“What an enjoyable event!” shared Oholei Torah rebbi Rabbi Shloime Schvei, “and what a meaningful way to complete this special day!”
Rabbi Bluming is passionate about utilizing every opportunity to benefit mechanchim. ”They are the backbone of a stronger, richer chinuch for our children, to help them shine in their Yiddishkeit in this turbulent world.”
