ANNUAL MOTHER-DAUGHTER TEA

It was tea time at LEC for girls in grades 6 to 8 and their mothers.  Organized by Bnos leaders Chani Dalfin, Shainy Kagan and Devorah Leah Korf, the event brought mothers and daughters together for an interesting and varied program.  Beginning with a dvar Torah on the parsha, the gathering was welcomed by Mrs. Chani Gansburg, a shlucha and parent in the school, and her 7th grade daughter Chaya’le.  Together they made the parsha come alive.  A video presentation of the many activities that have taken place so far this year was put together by student Tzivi Rabin and enjoyed by everyone.  The creativity of the participants was brought out by a pottery painting activity.  We are grateful to Mrs. Levana Hashem for providing the pottery and decorating supplies.  Much thanks also go to Shayna Bortunk and Rochel Gordon for beautifully setting up the room.

WELCOME TO LEC’S NEW HOME ON THE WEB

Welcome to Lubavitch Educational Center’s new home on the Web!

In the few short years from our location in South Miami Beach to our current North Miami Beach site, LEC’s enrollment was rapidly expanded. Our families come from all parts of Dade and Broward counties, and every year more families have moved to South Florida to enroll in our school.  With a current enrollment of over 1,100 students, the decision was made to change to a website format that would enable us to better serve our growing school.

While LECFL.COM is still in the formation stage, you will be seeing new features, pictures, videos and articles posted frequently. Our goal is to create a showcase for Lubavitch Educational Center, its programs, activities, and to facilitate parent-teacher communication, on-line registration, making sure our site looks great on all media, and much more.  As we continue to grow, LECFL.COM will grow with it, assuming an ever larger role in our school’s future.

We value your feedback.  Let us know what you think. Suggestions are welcome!

CHANUKAH MENORAH BUILDING CONTEST

It’s been a much loved tradition at LEC’s Elementary Boys School, and this year was no different.  The annual Chanukah Menorah Building Contest of 5775 once again brought out the marvelous creativity of our students.  With the requirement that students adhere to the halachic standards of a Chanukah menorah and construct it with limited parental help, the students came up with unusually imaginative designs, using—for the most part—regular household items.

FIRST GRADE BOYS START LEARNING CHUMASH

It was a milestone event, as LEC’s first grade boys celebrated their initiation into Chumash studies just before Chanukah.  Each of the 58 boys—all adored in Chumash-covered crowns and dressed in their Shabbos clothes—was presented with his very first sefer, a Chumash of his own.  The tradition was marked by refreshments, singing, dancing and picture-taking.  Mazal Tov to all the students, their teachers—Mrs. Tehila Baron, Mrs. Chagit Coen and Rabbi Mendy Engel, and to their proud parents, family and friends.
