Class Description:
ASBI Children’s Chess Club (ASBI-3C) is an instructional chess program for children in Grades 1-8. The purpose of this program is to provide our synagogue’s youth with an opportunity to partake in a safe, social, and intellectually-stimulating activity on Shabbat afternoons. Participants will have the opportunity to both learn strategy and apply those skills through actual game play. This program is designed for children who have proficient knowledge of how each chess piece moves.


The Lubavitcher Rebbe plays chess with his son-in-law in Perchtoldsdorf, Austria.
