My Chassidishe Calendar Program

Cheder Chabad boys are very excited about a new program introduced this week!

“My Chassidishe Calendar” is a way for the boys to learn about the Chassidishe days throughout the year  in a fun and interactive way.

Each boy received a calendar which lists the special days that occur in each month. On each of these days, the boys receive a worksheet that they fill out, filled with pictures and information about that Rebbe/Rebbetzin and the events that took place on that day.

After completing the paper, the boys are given a mission to complete. Once that is done, they are given a sticker to put on that date in their Chassidishe Calendar. Throughout the year, the boys will have the opportunity to learn about 38 different Chassidishe days. Those who receive stickers for all of the dates will be rewarded with a trip!
