That first step…

“A Chassidishe Chinuch”—we all want it, but what is it? A list of subjects? An educational theory? A style of dress?

From the Rebbe’s earliest Sichos, a vision emerges of what a Chassidishe Chinuch creates:

  • Someone who feels genuinely freed by the infinity of Torah, rather than trapped by the limits of the world

  • Someone who trusts in Hashem’s steadfast blessings rather than fearing the flux of the stock market

  • Someone who uses society’s progress to shine the light of Torah, rather than filtering Torah through the lens of society

These are the convictions that were absorbed by two generations of Chassidim, driving thousands of Shluchim to “ker a velt” in remarkable ways.

Inching forward…

But Chinuch today is more complex than ever, with never-before-seen challenges. Parents and educators struggle to convey the sense of wonder and freshness that sustained previous generations.

As the Jewish world aspires to “be more like Chabad,” some among us question if we are succeeding in sharing the “mindset of Moshiach” in our own classrooms and homes.

Taking the leap…

Do you still believe in the power and possibility of a genuine Chabad education? We do.

As the greater Chabad community explores ways to reinvigorate our Chinuch system, Menachem Education Foundation is building a thoughtful, uplifting and effective structure for delivering the best of these practices to students.

To date, our educators’ resources have enhanced the Jewish education of 11,700 children in 55 cities around the world. One step at a time. We do this by articulating goals for student outcomes, and we hold ourselves accountable at every step of the way.

If you are invested in Chabad education, invest in Menachem Education Foundation.
