Mandatory masks perfectly aligned with the theme of SKA’s MaSKArade Ball held on Wednesday evening, February 24.
Social distancing and the many precautions taken to ensure safety enabled this year’s Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls’ Purim chagigah to be a secure evening of fun and merrymaking. Held in HALB’s elementary school with ninth and tenth grades attending the first time period and eleventh and twelfth in the second, the Ball was a huge hit for both the student body and staff. Girls outfitted in their fanciest attire danced in their seats to the electrifying music and ruach of (iMove With) Naz and laughed at the comic Purim spiel. The faculty Purim video shown in school earlier in the day was especially entertaining as were the outfits the teachers and administrators wore to the chagigah.
Throughout Purim week, the yom tov spirit was clear to see as girls dressed in different costumes with brightly colored wigs each day. Taanis Esther, Thursday, February 24, became a day of chesed as SKA students delivered mishloach manos they had prepared to people in the community who would appreciate it the most.
It was a very freilichen Purim at SKA in so many ways!
