The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, described the objective of The Shul as such: “This is also the basic function of a ‘Shul’ to gather Jewish children together – children in the plain sense of the word and ‘children’ in terms of knowledge of G-d, His Torah and Mitzvos – and teach them in a manner that would imbue them with fear of G-d and to observe the Torah and commandments. Bearing all the above in mind, I am confident that each and every one of the participants [in this event] will increase in a consistently growing measure their support for the vital activities of “The Shul”, thus keeping the light of Torah shining ever more brightly in your area and the world over”.
