    Excitement swept through over 10 school auditoriums nationwide and in Canada, as over 600 students attended their respective school’s Gamara Bifnim Launch Event in the course of the last ten days.

    Gemara Bifnim, a program founded by Lubavitch Chinuch Organization Igud Hamelamdim, strongly motivates and rewards students for mastery of the text, a skill critical to their success through school and yeshiva, is entering its sixth year and has more participants than ever before.

    So infectious was the spirit that the schools messaged their parent-body, conveying the excitement.of the event.

    The launch events were featured in the following 10 locations: United Lubavitcher Yeshiva, Oholei Torah Elementary, Cheder Lubavitch Morristown, Mechina Oholei Torah, CATO Valley Stream, Cheder Lubavitch Toronto, Cheder Lubavitch Chicago, Cheder Lubavitch Baltimore, Cheder Lubavitch Kingston, PA, and Cheder Ohr Menachem.

    At each event, the finalists of last year’s program were presented by their principals with prizes of valuable seforim sets. Seeing the reward for their efforts, incentivized the boys to commit themselves to succeed in the program this coming year.

    Students were addressed by Rabbi Avrohom Bluming, Executive Director of Igud Hamelamdim. A visual demonstration of the winners’ names and their Gemara Bifnim award points was displayed at each event. .

    Heartfelt enthusiasm was felt as the students absorbed the core message echoed across the events on the significance of “Bifnim” learning and the enjoyment of becoming an independent lifelong learner.

    Respective principals from the participating schools — Rabbis, Yosef Simpson, Yosef Wolf, Yehoshua Lustig, Ari Wilshanski, Chaim Yisroel Wilhelm, Schneur Zalman Berkowitz, Yisroel Bardwigdor, Zalman Twersky, Efraim Sorkin, Yoel Chazan, Mendel Yuzevitch — all encouraged their students to fully invest themselves in this mivtza, and praised Igud Hamelamidim for the great benefit the program has brought their students.

    “While being able to read the Gemara inside is assumed to be basic to learning Gemara,” explains Rabbi Avrohom Bluming.

    “The reality is that it is becoming a growing challenge. Children nowadays are finding it ever more challenging to focus on words on a page, and it really hits them hard when they enter yeshiva. Our revolutionary program, motivating and teaching these fundamental skills,is already seeing results. Bochurim graduating from this program are far more advanced than their peers in deciphering a page of Gemara on their own.”
