The Chassidishe Experience

Complementing the academic challenge, students in Beth Rivkah DHL enjoy a complete seminary experience. Specifically, living in the Rebbe’s Shchuna offers a wealth of Chassidishe inspiration and opportunities for community involvement and Hashpoah.  

Shana Alef

Students in Shana Alef experience weekly Farbrengens with noted Mashpi’im and guest speakers, as well as frequent Shabbos meals and Shabbatons where they connect and share inspiration. There are special in-school programs for Yomei D’pagra and Hachanos before Chassidishe Yomim Tovim. Students also get together weekly for interesting activities and trips and to build friendships. All of these events are coordinated by the students themselves with the guidance of our enthusiastic Madrichot. As Chassidim of the Rebbe, we are given the privilege and responsibility of being Lamplighters. Thus, students are encouraged to take an active role in Hashpo’ah through such major school activities as Beth Rivkah Production or the Inter-School Convention as well as by doing Released Time or other Mivtzoim, Chesed, Tutoring and Mentoring of community children.  

Shana Bais

Shana Bais presents a unique opportunity for students to remain immersed in Chassidishkeit as they begin assuming additional life responsibilities. Students in Shana Bais coordinate and benefit from bi-monthly Farbrengens, several Shabbos meals and Shabbatons and special in-school programs for Yomei D’pagra. Bnos Chabad, Beth Rivkah Production, the Inter-School Convention and other volunteer opportunities allow students to channel their learning and inspiration into Ma’aseh B’poel and to make a difference.
