A full-day program at Cheder Chabad of Monsey on Thursday celebrated the auspicious day of Hei Teves.

Early in the day talmidim experienced a hands-on exhibit with old seforim of various genres and even one manuscript of notated songs for a shul. Principal Rabbi Levi Kaplan shared the background of the seforim and even showed talmidim a Tanya that he received from the Rebbe which the Rebbe signed.

Later in the day, several classes were zoche to hear and see a presentation by Rabbi Efraim Keller, a Cheder parent who worked at the Rebbe’s library for many years.

Rabbi Keller’s talk focused mainly on the Hey Teves impact on the Rebbe’s library and the universal nature of the library. The talmidim were very curious and listened closely to his fascinating talk.

The exciting day ended off the day with a smashing book fair, smoothly operated and well staffed by the cheder PTA.
