Chanukah Gifts For Your Little Son’s Rebbe

Gift giving is a real challenge for many parents during Chanukah. It is especially difficult to find something meaningful and useful for the young rebbes who teach in a yeshiva ketana. Little boys can be quite a handful and one should be extra careful in finding a gift that shows your appreciation for their mesirat nefesh.


Here is a list of the best ten gifts to give:


Industrial-strength earmuffs – not to necessarily keep out the cold but to keep out the noise.


A one way ticket to the Mir – not the yeshiva – but the space station.


If he is single – a shidduch with a girl whose father owns a large business that is short-handed.


A year’s supply of tranquilizers.


A loudspeaker – so that he will still have a voice at the end of the day.


A winning lottery ticket – and the option to retire.


A car that stalls on the way to work.


A promotion to a yeshiva gedolah.


A look-alike to stand in for him from time to time.


And the best gift of all – a simple thank you from time to time for taking on the difficult, under appreciated and often stressful job of the chinuch of small children.
