Cheder Chabad of Monsey Celebrates 10 Years!

Cheder Chabad of Monsey hosted a beautiful gala reception in honor of its 10th year anniversary this past Sunday night at the grand ballroom of K'hal Tzemach Tzedek Lubavitch of Monsey.

The evening began with welcoming remarks by Cheder Chabad's Menahel, Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman. Rabbi Avrohom Wolowick, Principal of the Cheder Boys School, then recited the Rebbe's Kapital of Tehillim which was followed by a Dvar Torah by Rabbi Boruch Lesches, the Rav of the Monsey Chabad community.

The many guests were then treated to the debut of the Cheder Chabad of Monsey’s Boys Choir led by Bentzi Ptalis accompanied by the live music of Rabbi Zalman Goldstein.

The Parents of the Year Award was presented to Mr. & Mrs. Dror and Shlomit Frommer and the Aishes Chayil Award went to teacher and parent, Mrs. Pirhia Flamer. The crowd then heard from a star Cheder student, Menachem Mendel Krasnjanski.

A showing of a beautiful new video, produced in honor of the evening, was enjoyed by all.

The evening concluded with Gershon Sandler, Director of Development for the Cheder, expressing Hakaros Hatov to the many individuals that helped make the evening such a big success.
