The Menachem Foundation
The Chinuch Awards, run in conjunction with the upcoming Chabad Chinuch Convention, identifies exceptional teachers in Chabad, recognizes their effective work in the classroom, and honors them for their tremendous impact on our community’s children.
The men’s judging panel that chose the finalists included: Rabbi Manis Frankel, Pittsburgh, PA, Rabbi Meir Perlstein, Darchei Menachem, Crown Heights, and Rabbi Faitel Lewin, Crown Heights. The Judging Panel was coordinated by Rabbi Nissen Brenenson of the Menachem Education Foundation.
Excellent teachers have an impact on their talmidim that extends beyond classroom walls, they work to ensure that every child receives a quality Chassidishe Chinuch that will set them on a course for a successful life. These expert mechanchim are not just teachers – they are mashpiim and living examples for the next generation.
