Cheder Chabad Girls Celebrate Yud Tes Kislev

Cheder Chabad Girls celebrated י"ט כסלו with a התקשרות war.

There were three teams: א חסידישע ווארט, א חסידישע ניגון and א חסידשע הנהגה.

The girls made a banner, skit, song and cheer on the topic of their team. It was amazing to see how in such a short time the teams were able to achieve so much טוחן on the חסידישע themes they were assigned.

Each team also presented a gift to Cheder Chabad on their theme. What beautiful lessons of התקשרות were learned!

The judges had a hard time deciding who the winners were because each team did such a phenomenal job. The preschool had a grand Farbrengen led by Rabbi Meir Borenstein who came prepared with exciting props to share the Yud Tes Kislev story with the kinderlach.

They also said pesukim, sang nigunim and ate a yummy Shabbos party.
