After months of hard work, 75 yaldei hashluchim who are finalists in the Chidon traveled to Crown Heights from around the world to participate in their grand trip.
Last year, the Chidon was unable to have an in person celebration due to covid. To make up for it this year, the Chidon administration decided to go all out and give the finalists an over-the-top experience. MyShliach added to the fun by preparing a two-and-a-half day program just for the yaldei hashluchim, jam-packed with trips, activities, and adventure.
On Monday, the boys got a tour of Merkos 302 and received a special gift bag full of MyShliach branded gifts, including a sweater, pillow and water bottle. The next day, after davening Shachris together in 770 and enjoying a delicious breakfast, the yaldei hashluchim boarded the busses to join the other finalists from the Tri-State area for a full day trip to American Dream Mall’s water and amusement parks.
They then traveled to Tenafly, New Jersey, where they were hosted by Rabbi Mordechai Shain of Lubavitch on the Palisades for supper and a very special simcha: the Bar Mitzvah of one of the MyShliach Chidon finalists, Meir Tiechtel from Champaign Illinois. They celebrated with singing and dancing, and every boy got a beautiful siddur as a memento of the occasion.
Tomorrow, the program continues with a visit to the Rebbe’s Ohel and a trip to North Woodmere Park, and more.
The organizers would like to thank their incredible staff, led by Mendy Lepkivker and Schneur Elberg for adding their chassidishe chayus and giving the boys a fantastic experience that they’ll remember for a lifetime, and to Rabbi Moshe Rubashkin for his hosting.
The MyShliach Chidon program was arranged by Rabbi Yossi Elberg of MyShliach, directed by Rabbi Mendy Shanowitz of MyShliach, with the assistance of Merkos 302 and Rabbi Mendy Kotlarsky.
