COLlive exclusive: Marriage classes are a must among Chabad couples. Now a pre-dating course of 8 sessions was developed in Crown Heights. Full Story


Open House in Crown Heights for Mesivta Lev Tmimim Lubavitch, Monsey

Crown Heights, Thur., 5 Tamuz (June 29).

An open forum to discuss our unique approach in addressing the needs of many of today’s mainstream Bochurim. 7th/8th grade parents, Mechanchim, and community activists invited.

A strong Chassidishe atmosphere and high level learning as fitting a Chabad Mosad, programming towards nurturing integrity, confidence, and wellbeing - values built into the planning of activities and curriculum.

Experienced Hanhola, and six Chassidishe Talmidei HaShluchim already selected for 5778 are a Dugma Chaya so every Talmid can reach his full potential. Our Simcha program helps establish the atmosphere of serious Limud HaTorah.

The Yeshiva’s emphasis on accountability and professionalism is in line with Chabad’s Shlichus efforts as well as programs usually geared only toward remedial programs. Our community must focus those same resources on mainstream, healthy, children too.
