A special ‘Latkes Ovent’ took place on the 4th lichtel of Chanuka for students of Ohr Menachem in Crown Heights, and their parents. The annual ‘Neiros Lehoir’ evening gives an opportunity for every student in the school to shine, and every parent to enjoy pure nachas.
Parents got a chance to see their son, and his accomplishments celebrated and got a vivid display of young chassidishe talent.
The evening began with a special presentation by Kita Vov. Following months of in-depth Limud Hatorah, learning about the mishkan in parshiyos Teruma & Tezave. and of the Beis Hamikdash – in Mishnayos Yuma, the boys prepared life-size models of all Keilim of the Mishkan with their Melamed Rabbi Levi Belinov. The models were set up for parents to see and enjoy.
Following the guided tour of Kita Vov, the Menahel Rabbi Mendel Yusewitz invited Reb Berel Lipskar, member of the Vaad Ruchni of Cheder Ohr Menachem, to light the Menora of Pirsumei Nissa.
The Hadloka was followed by an amazing ‘Haneiros Halalu’, sung by the Ohr Menachem Kita Hey Choir, led masterfully by Hatomim Avrohom Rachamim.
The parents and talmidim were then addressed by the menahel kloli Rabbi Menachem Mendel Hakohen Hendel. He shared how, Baruch Hashem, the cheder has been a beacon of light for the Shchuna in Yiddishkait, Chassidishkait and leading a life of Geula. He warmly thanked all the staff and parents and concluded by benching all with Birkas Kohanim.
