Monsey 5770 Menorah Parade Update

The parade will take place on this Sunday, December 13. Line-up will be at 6:15 PM at K’hal Tzemach Tzedek Lubavitch. The parade is scheduled to depart at 6:45 PM but can only do so on time if most cars show up before 6:30 PM.

The route will follow a similar route to last year, but will start off heading towards Route 59 then loop around on West Maple Avenue to Grandview, and then go through New City and end in the Spring Valley Marketplace in the Target parking lot.

In the Target parking lot there will be a grand menorah lighting followed by an entertainer for the children, Chanukah gelt, doughnuts, latkes, music and dancing!

As required by the Police Department for safety reasons, as a courtesy to the shuls neighbors, and to ensure that the event is organized, please follow these guidelines so that this parade is a true Kiddush Hashem:

  • During line-up please do not block any driveways.

19 Kislev at Cheder Chabad Boys

On יט כבלו in Cheder Chabad, the 12 boys from the 7th and 8th grades made projects about the story of יט כבלו. There where some creative PowerPoint presentations and posters as well as projects that were built.

All of the classes from 2nd through 8th came at different times to see the projects and hear the explanations behind them from the 7th and 8th graders.

During the סעודה Rabbi Wiener showed the entire Cheder a 27 slide PowerPoint presentation, which went through the whole story of Yud Tes Kislev. Nigunim were then sung, l’chaim was said and the children all received ices.
