In one of the Hasidic Yiddish Speaking Cheders in Monsey NY, a good bye party was held by fellow classmates and the principal for a 10 Year old the day before he made Aliyah. it was so moving that even Ambassador Danny Dayan tweeted it!
The General Studies Principal Rabbi Moshe Klein said: “The idea came from the students themselves who decided to throw a good bye party to their friend.”
One kid brought a blue & white cake another brought Israeli Hummus and so on.
The School has a unique geography program where every kid is an ambassador and represents a country. The Israeli representative gave the boy an Israeli flag Pin while the Saudi ambassador gave that boy a cake where it said in hebrew “and you should inherit the land” and said a blessing in arabic saying there should be peace in the region.
It got media attention from senior Israeli Officials: Ambassador danny Dayan tweeted: In the Yiddish-speaking Hasidic heider “Imrei Shefer” the students and the principal – my good friend Moishe Klein – bid farewell to one of the children that made Aliyah to Jerusalem. Moving and not obvious.

Former MK Rabbi Dov Lipman a leading Aliyah activist posted on FB:
It should be added Eretz Yisroel and the state of Israel play a huge role in the School, The kids learn Tanach and the maps of Judea and semaria can be found on the walls. Imrei Shufer also has an advanced general studies program. Rabbi Klein finishes: “we are proud our school is the place where Ramaz and satmar meet under one roof”
