Achdus gatherings for children will be held in Crown Heights this Shabbos, separately for boys and girls, as per the Rebbe’s request to hold gatherings on the week before Shavuos.
Join the children’s Achdus gatherings this Shabbos, Chof Tes Iyar!
The Rebbe requested, as a bakosha nafshis, that Jewish children, the guarantors for Torah, gather together on the Shabbos before Mattan Torah. This mirrors the unity our people displayed, as they stood at Har Sinai, “k’ish echod, b’lev echod,” as one man, with one heart.
Even more relevant now is the power that the Torah and Tefillah of children hold, to help our brethren in Eretz Yisroel, and the world over. In fact, before the surprise outbreak of the Yom Kippur War, the Rebbe asked that children gather to daven and say words of Torah at the Kosel Ha’Ma’arovi and other locations in Eretz Yisroel, in fulfillment of the possuk, “מִפִּי עוֹלְלִים וְיֹנְקִים יִסַּדְתָּ עֹז… לְהַשְׁבִּית אוֹיֵב וּמִתְנַקֵּם,” “Out of the mouths of young children You established the power . . . to put an end to enemy and avenger!”
Let us harness the power of children and their unity, to bring Moshiach now!
