The Shomrei Haloshon Year Has Begun!

By | News | No Comments

Birdrachov, the elementary school division of the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation, has been hard at work these past few weeks packaging over 7,500 kits for their Shomrei Haloshon program.
“It’s a great feeling knowing that each student will receive an individual kit making them feel special,” said Rabbi Shea Steinberg, a school liaison for Bidrachov. “Now all we need to do is get these programs to them and today we are starting to ship.”
Geared for the 4th and 5th grade, Shomrei Haloshon is Bidrachov’s premier program and is currently being used in over 160 schools worldwide. Shomrei Haloshon is designed to help children build life-long habits of Shmiras Haloshon using fun, excitement and plenty of motivation. The program includes 126 short daily lessons comprised of a halachah and true-to-life illustrated story to make the learning of Shmiras Haloshon as engaging and applicable to children as possible. In addition, the program includes weekly and monthly reviews that solidify these lessons.
“The Shomrei Haloshon Curriculum is very effective because it creates a tremendous awareness of Shmiras Haloshon in the most enjoyable and motivating way,” said Rabbi Pirutinsky, Principal of the Lakewood Cheder. “For the teacher the program is both easy and well-organized. It takes just a few short minutes of class time every day!”
Mrs. Meira Schur, Teacher at Arie Crown Hebrew Day school in Skokie said, “Shomrei Haloshon is the highlight of our day! After learning the halacha and reading the story, the girls and I discuss the questions. They absolutely love sharing their opinions and discussing the anecdote. Thank you for opening our eyes to this program!”
The Shomrei Haloshon program is available in English and Yiddish and starts on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvon.
