Zayin Adar Farbrengen

There will be a farbrengen in honor of Zayin Adar, the birthday and yahrzeit of Moshe Rabeinu, this Wednesday night, February 25, following the 9:30 PM Maariv minyan at Tzemach Tzedek.

Moshe Rabeinu was born in Egypt on the 7th of Adar of the year 2368 from creation. According to one opinion the year of Moshe Rabeinu’s birth was a leap year and he was born in the first Adar. Moshe Rabeinu passed away on his 120th birthday on Adar 7, 2488.

Monsey Anash Matza Baking 5775

As the month of Adar rolls around, arrangements for rolling matza follows in its wake. The yearly Matza baking group, supervised by Rabbi Aaron Dovid Gancz and Rabbi Aaron Oster (and under the Hashgocha of the Crown Heights Rabbonim), organized by Dovid Kaplan will take place on Tuesday, the 12th of Adar 5775, the 3rd of March 2015 at 2:00 PM.

We specialize in delicious and nutritious Whole Wheat Matza. Participating in the baking is a wonderful experience, greatly heightening our kavana and appreciation of the sedorim and Pesach, as well as increasing our involvement in all the erev Pesach preparations. Bringing our children to the baking, brings to life what Pesach is all about, having a profound effect on their Pesach experience, creating good memories that last a lifetime.

As in past years, we will rent a cargo van in order to bring the matza back to Monsey for local pickup for those that just cannot make it to the baking.

Please email Dovid at dovid.kaplan@gmail.com first come, first serve. Although we bake mostly Whole Wheat matza (last year close to 400 pounds!), we can get you whatever is your preference, including Spelt and Oat if necessary, but we must know well in advance.

There is just a little more than one week before the baking, so please contact Dovid as soon as possible.

May our energetic involvement in the mitzvahs of Pesach bring open and revealed goodness, giving actual physical reasons for our increased joy!


Only Six Days Left for Cheder Purim Campaign

Below is a great way to have a really פרייליכען פורים, feel great about צדקה, give משלוח מנות, and help the Cheder Chabad of Monsey.

Purim is so much fun, with so many easy-to-perform Mitzvos as well! Two parts of the Yom Tov are giving Tzedaka (Matanos L’evyonim) and Mishloach Manos.  Cheder Chabad of Monsey is offering two ways to complete these Mitzvos, making it easier to fulfil.

For Matanos L’evyonim, we’re offering a donation card. Each family you select will receive one, to let them know that you have honored them with a contribution to Cheder Chabad.

Here’s how it works: 
The more names you select, the lower the average cost. The first 24 names is at $4 each; for 25 names or more, the fee is $72, (about $3.00 per name); and for the whole (ganze!) list, the fee is $360.
An email will be sent to you shortly which contains the username and password that will enable you to log on to  www.purimproject.com . If you do not receive it by Wednesday the 11th, please let us know by emailing purim@chedermonsey.org or by calling  845.356.1213 ext 227.

Mishloach Manos
For the first time ever, Cheder Chabad of Monsey is offering Mishloach Manos baskets. There are four beautifully designed and assembled Purim baskets, ready for you to pick up. Scrumptious and stylish, they will make both you and your recipient proud. Not only will they will reflect your good taste, but you will also be commended for the contribution you made to the Cheder.

And did we mention that the bustle of dreaming up the presentation, plus doing all the purchasing and assembly will also be ours, so you will be free to look to Purim with a light heart? That’s a bonus in and of itself!
