LA Boys Rewarded for Mishnayos

Students of Cheder Menachem Los Angeles were rewarded for learning Mishnayos by heart with their proud parents, grandparents, relatives and friends in attendance.

On Sunday, 28 Iyar, talmidim of Cheder Menachem Los Angeles, together with their parents, grandparents, relatives and friends, gathered together to mark the culmination of over two months of learning Mishnayos and Tanya Baal Peh, as a present to the Rebbe in honor of Yud Alef Nissan.

The event began with a video of the Talmidim of grade 1, learning Tanya Baal Peh in class, which was followed by these Talmidim, in their first year as part of Mishnayos Baal Peh, receiving their prizes. Rabbi Mendel Greenbaum, Menahel of the Cheder, then began the formal part of the event, welcoming all. Rabbi Greenbaum introduced Rabbi Shimon Raichik, Rov of Anash, who shared Divrei Bracha, reminding all present that it is in the zechus of the children learning Torah that we received the Torah on Shavuos.

Special Hakoras HaTov was expressed to Reb Yankel Ginsburg and family, who are the Zevulun of the Mishnayos Baal Peh program, sponsoring the prizes given to the Talmidim, Liluy Nishmas his father Reb Dov Reuven ben Reb Dovid HaLevi obm.

Rabbi Sholom Heidingsfeld, the coordinator of the Program gave a brief overview of this years accomplishments, highlighting the fact that this year, in particular, many classmates encouraged each other and helped them memorize and be tested. With over 64,000 lines of Torah learned Baal Peh, including more than 25,000 lines of Mishnayos, 11,500 lines of Tanya and many lines of Siddur and Yediyos Kloliyos, every Talmid participating has a share in the Nachas brought to the Rebbe.

Highlighting this, a video was shown with part of a sicha where the Rebbe speaks about learning and reviewing Mishna by heart, followed by 2 occasions where Talmidim of Oholei Torah went for dollars, telling the Rebbe about the Mishnayos they had learned. The Rebbes Brochos can be seen continuing now, as one of the boys in that video now has three children of his own in the Cheder, who each learned substantial amounts of Mishnayos and Tanya Baal Peh this year.

Three Talmidim, Yitzchok Wolowik, Avremele Levitansky and Levi Yitzchok Hecht came up to the stage as representatives of the Yud Bais Perakim Club, encouraging Talmidim to learn the first 12 perakim of Tanya by heart before their Bar Mitzvah. These boys have all learned more than 7 perakim by heart already.

A lot of Mishnayos learned this year were done as part of the Siach Hasodeh program, started in memory of Hechover Reb Shmuel Yosef and Mrs. Chana Heidingsfeld obm, where talmidim can learn and be tested from the beginning of the year, Baal Peh on the Mishnayos they are learning in class.

This years achievements include 13 boys from Rabbi Blasbergs Girsa class who learned the entire Masechta Megilah Baal Peh, with the translation, and Yossi Heidingsfeld, 6th grade, who learned the entire Seder Moed as well as Masechtos Bikurim and Avos.

After this, every talmid received their prize according to their achievements. Each Talmid also received a special booklet made for the occasion which includes stories as well as short sayings from the Rabbeim about the importance of learning and reviewing Mishnayos and Tanya Baal Peh.

A special thank you to Mrs. Ruchie Stillman, R Nochum Labkowsky, Rabbi Leibel Cohen, Mr. Sam Kustanovich, all the Rebbeim and Menahalim of the Cheder and the Cheder board for all their help in ensuring the success of the days events.
