The Talmidim of 8th grade of Lubavitcher Yeshiva learned about the effects of alcohol (aka mashke), both from a medical perspective, as well as from the Rebbe’s point of view. This class is part of the 2-year-long series of important class discussions for the older boys of Lubavitcher Yeshiva.
Every week, Rabbi Moishy Goldstein visits all 7th and 8th grade classes and discusses relevant topics of Yiddishkeit, Chassidshkeit and life lessons with the Talmidim. The classes are accompanied by engaging PowerPoint presentations and provide the opportunity for questions and class discussions on the important subjects that are discussed.
The topics include: Peer pressure, healthy technology use, mobile addiction, Avodas Hatefillah, Chitas, Shmiras Ho’einaim, and many more topics, starting at the beginning of 7th grade and concluding at the end of 8th grade.
“I’m basically presenting them with everything I wish I would have known when I was their age,” is how Rabbi Goldstein put it. As a part of this discussion, each Talmid received an original booklet titled “Quotes From the Rebbe About Mashke,” along with a summary sheet of the Rebbe’s guidelines. The PDF of the booklet can be viewed and downloaded here.
In addition, Rabbi Y. Simpson, Menahel, presents the 8th grade classes with a two-part series on Kedusha and Tahara. He discusses the particular challenges that adolescents face and Torah-grounded advice on how to successfully navigate these turbulent years.
