OUR RECAP FROM 5774!
In anticipation to SoCal’s 1st-ever ‘Unzere Kinder’ Children’s Convention we are pleased to announce the “My Rebbe” project; highlighting each child’s connection to the Rebbe.
Going on Mivtzoim
Thinking of the Rebbe
Listening or learning some of the Rebbe’s niggunim
Learning from the Rebbe’s Torah
Learning about Moshiach
Watching a Video of the Rebbe
Reading stories about the Rebbe
Doing something the Rebbe would want us to do
Children have the choice to submit one of 3 projects:
Produce a 2-3 minute video, where children act out a storyline that highlights their connection/dedication to the Rebbe. Children can join with other children or work as a solo act. The project requires filming & editing talents.
Prepare and present a poster that displays the child’s connection to the Rebbe. The poster can be made a collage of pictures or as a drawing; with crayons, markers or even as a painting. A maximum of two (2) children are allowed to work on a single poster.
LEARNING FROM THE REBBE’S TORAH & WRITING A SUMMARY
Learn a Sicha or Ma’amar of the Rebbe (preferably although not exclusively) and write a summary of the material learned. Children can learn on their own, with a parent or with another child, bechavrusa.
All entries must be submitted no later than Wednesday, the 7th of Shevat (Jan 8th). Entries can be emailed to Srula@KolYaakovYehuda.com or dropped off at 356 N. Fuller Ave. bet. Oakwood & Beverly.

Hachanah For Yud Shvat
BY: Mottel Marcus
From the sicha for Shemos in Likutei Sichos.
When it says that you should throw the baby boys in the Nile it also says that you should make the girls live. Since they're in the same pasuk they're as bad as each other (getting thrown in the Nile and living). When it says "make them live" it means make them live like an Egyptian. This Galus is compared to Galus Mitzrayim and getting thrown in the Nile is compared to getting 'thrown' into culture. Culture means that he should be a "doctor" or a "lawyer", and he can learn on the side. If he learns the whole time how will he make money? The Rebbe's telling us that if we put our Jewishness first than we will get freed from this galus speedily in our days. Amen!
