Frum Boy Launches Chassidishe Lego Minifigures


Chanan Finkelstein, a 4th grader at Ohr Chadash Academy in Baltimore, recently approached his mother, asking for the Lego Death Star set, which costs about $500.

His mother, Tobey, hesitated. Then she said, “Yes, if you can crowdfund it.”

The result? Launching a kickstarter to produce a short run of custom Lego minifigs as Chassidim.

If Chaim can get about 60 sold, he’ll have enough money to buy the Death Star – and turn it into the “Brickovicker Rebbe’s” new shul.

Tobey gave us a suggestion for a headline for this story: “Brickovicker Rebbe issues call to crowdfund first intergalactic shul,” adding, “Maybe? 🙂 He’d be THRILLED!”

Good luck, Chaim!
