Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory (1902-1994), the seventh leader in the Chabad-Lubavitch dynasty, is considered to have been one of the most important Jewish personalities of modern times. To hundreds of thousands of followers and millions of sympathizers and admirers around the world, he was and still is, despite his passing – “the Rebbe”. The Rebbe dedicated his life to stir ring the conscience and spiritual awakening of world Jewry. With the Rebbe’s teachings and leadership, Chabad grew rapidly and currently has more than 3,300 centers worldwide and 4500 emissaries spanning the globe. The Rebbe’s goal to reach out to every corner of the world with love and concern has unfolded dramatically. No sector of the community has been excluded -- young and old; men and women; leader and layman; scholar and laborer; student and teacher; children, and even infants. The Rebbe met everyone at their own level -- he advised Heads of State on matters of national and international importance, explored with professionals the complexities in their own fields of expertise, and spoke to small children with warm words and a fatherly smile.


ABOUT TRIBUTE PHOTOS MESSAGES JOURNAL


M I S S I O N S TAT E M E N T

Our school offers quality education in both Judaic and secular subjects – developing students’ minds while cultivating a sense of purpose through Torah values. Our students are imbued with the gifts of personal identity, cultural affiliation, and spiritual direction. By carrying the torch of Judaism with dignity and pride, they are empowered to transform this world into a better and more G-dly place. Our unique Chabad approach fosters excitement for Judaism, concern for peers, and a deep sense of responsibility. Our teachers have high academic and ethical standards. We believe our students can have it all. Students that seek the finest Jewish education should never have to give up other academic opportunities. Our Judaic and general studies staff strive to bridge the Judaic world and the secular world, because ultimately, math, science, history and Torah are all intertwined.


M e s s a g e f r o m R A B B I Y I T Z C H O K W O L F, D E A N This evening, Cheder is celebrating its 38th anniversary highlighting the accomplishments of the school. Parents, grandparents and the Sages of old serve as role models instilling a love for Torah and our tradition. Yet, without a proper and formal Jewish education Judaism cannot survive the turbulent winds of pop culture and other social pressures alien to Judaism, lurking and targeting our youth. On the face of it, education is the training of children and youngsters. It is the child who obviously needs to be taughtto be imparted knowledge, to be aided in the honing of faculties and skills, to be guided in the development of a moral self that distinguishes between right and wrong andnever loses sight of its responsibilities towards G-d and man. Within our own selves, too, there is the "elder" and the "youngster," our yesterday and tomorrow, and the former must never cease to guide and instruct the latter. Within our own selves, too, is a perpetual need to learn, develop and grow, to cultivate the seeds and saplings of our present potential in the trees and fruits of future achievement. We talk about the child because in the child the need is evident, the transition visible, and the results tangible. The dedicated staff at our Cheder is devoted to equip the children with a Chinuch that goes far beyond facts and figures. Ahavas Hashem, Ahavas Hatorah and Ahavas Yisroel is what we all strive for, but to instill this into the hearts and minds of young children is an awesome task. A task which demands sensitivity and understanding, and above all the necessity of being a true role model to them. I applaud our caring staff that is dedicated to Jewish Education and make it a priority in their lives. We are thankful to the Associated Talmud Torahs of Chicago and the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago for their ongoing assistance. The Federation's allocation to Cheder in addition to the Federation's support of social services, priority grants, loans guarantees, and assistance with obtaining additional public funds and other resources are of vital importance. This evening we celebrate the completion of a Torah dedicated by Sherwin and Pam Willner in memory of Sherwin’s parents, Ben and Mary Willner. Sherwin operated a successful fish business for close to 50 years. The Willners are renowned for their Chesed and years of support to Cheder. Sherwin is a participant in many Torah classes and Pam takes an active role in the programs and activities of their Shul, Cong. Yehuda Moshe. The Willners are blessed with three children and 2 grandchildren and are following in their parent’s path. We extend our best wishes to Sherwin and Pam and wish them continued good health, success and Nachas.


BEN AND MARY WILLNER A”H Read Bio


BEN & MARY WILLNER

BEN WILLNER was born in 1914 in Chicago. By the age of 17, he was helping out in his father’s company, Willner’s Green Bay Fish Co. Following a tour of duty during WW II, where he served in the Army, he returned to the company. It was there that he met a pretty and bright young bookkeeper, Mary Zakovsky. The two married in 1949 and settled in Rogers Park, where they raised their children Sherwin and Paula. With a partner, Ben bought the L. Isaacson and Stein Fish Company where he worked together with his son Sherwin, who eventually became his partner and then took over the business after Ben’s passing. BEN AND MARY were very proud Jews and raised their children that way. Even though Mary passed away in 1997 and Ben passed away in 2001, their legacy lives on through the communal devotion of their children and grandchildren.

In memory of our beloved son and brother Yehoshua Aryeh ("Joshy") Friedman, whose short life was exemplified by his sweet smile and special Neshama. We did not intend to send Joshy to Cheder, it just happened. There is a plaque hanging over the door to the third grade classroom in his memory -- not donated by anyone in particular, but created by the school out of love for Josh. Joshy could not have been in a better atmosphere under Cheder's warm and loving environment, picked up every day in Rabbi Raices' Silver Bullet (as Joshy's siblings called it). Yasher Koach to a great school!
