Shulamith Mothers, Daughters Celebrate Bat Mitzvah

Shulamith sixth-graders recently celebrated entering the age of mitzvot with their mothers, teachers, and principals. The students performed a meaningful cantata in which they explored the significance of the women of the Jewish nation. The cantata told the stories of the seven prophetesses of the Jewish nation entirely in Hebrew, with a script composed by Morah Chana Schwartz, based on sources in the Tanach and the Midrash Agaddah. After this, the mothers and daughters spent time in three rotating workshops, enjoying a shiur for mothers and daughters with Morah Chana, baking challah with Morah Shoshana Fischman, and simcha dancing with Mrs. Sima Gefen. The evening included a scrumptious dairy dinner and dessert. Siddurim were presented as gifts to all the girls in honor of their becoming bnot mitzvah.

Shulamith Yediot Klaliyot Fair

The Shulamith Middle Division had their very own Yediot Klaliyot fair. Students participated in various activities and learned about the shivat ha’minim, important people throughout Tanach, righteous gentiles during the Holocaust, and so much more. The students were led from one activity to the next by eighth-grade ambassadors. The fair served as preparation for the Yediot Klaliyot Bee which will take place in the upcoming month.

Shulamith Middle Division students recently invited their fathers to school for the annual Father–Daughter Minyan, generously sponsored by Rabbi Ira and Chevi Ebbin, David and Sarah Casden, David Chait, Avi and Julie Feinberg, Yakov and Mindy Moskowitz, Misha and Estee Rapaport, and Daniel and Tzippy Yarmish. The fathers led the tefillot, and their daughters followed closely. After the davening, each student joined her father in the lunchroom to enjoy a delicious brunch. Tefillah is treasured at Shulamith School for Girls!
