Education & Sharing Day U.S.A.

Celebrate, Learn, Watch, Read and Listen


The Rebbe often pointed out that the Rebbeim expressed an astonishing interest in the chinuch of children. The first Rebbe of Chassidus, the Baal Shem Tov, commented that the best years of his life were when he was an assistant teacher in a cheder. The Frierdiker Rebbe, the Rebbe’s predecessor, put everything at risk—including his life—to establish chadarim in Soviet Russia.

The Rebbe’s work in education is all-encompassing. On a communal level, the Rebbe led initiatives to increase enrollment in Jewish schools and camps, raised the bar of Jewish education, and established hundreds of schools across the globe. On a personal level, the Rebbe is the first and only Rebbe to regularly address children’s gatherings and interact with them on a regular basis, in addition to personally designing a children’s program.

But the Rebbe’s activities for chinuch aren’t limited to the Jewish world. The Rebbe articulated a comprehensive vision on education in modern day society, including the role of the government and schools in a child’s rearing. Over a period that spanned several presidencies, he pushed for various pieces of legislation that would advance this vision, as administrations and possibilities changed.
