    For the fourth year in a row, the creativity and skills of Oholei Torah’s elementary school talmidim shined as they designed, crafted, and built their projects for the annual Menorah Contest. The talmidim, either individually or in groups, worked for weeks to build their beautiful, creative, and meaningful menorah projects from scratch.

    The annual event is run by Oholei Torah’s energetic Tzivos Hashem director, Rabbi Mendel Levin, together with his assistant Shneur Krinsky. “It’s amazing to see the ideas and professionalism the students put into this project. Menorahs made out of everything you can think of are displayed” said Rabbi Levin, as he walked past groups of talmidim setting up their projects for display in the grand ballroom.

    Each class had a tour of the Menorahs, and a group of judges voted on the top Menorahs from each grade, as well as overall winners from the entire school. The winners were rewarded with Tzivos Hashem “Miles” rewards points, which can be cashed in at the Oholei Torah Tzivos Hashem store.

    The annual contest is a chance for talmidim to get creative and express themselves with the talent Hashem has given them, and it greatly adds to the Chanukah yom tov excitement and spirit throughout the yeshiva.
