Middle school girls continued learning about what it means to become a Bas Mitzvah in the third in a series of assemblies designed to give the girls a lasting appreciation of what it means to be Bas Yisroel (daughter of Israel).
The theme of the assembly on February 2nd was Bas Kedoshim, and was based off the posuk used in the Friday night blessing for daughters "Yesimech Elokim K'Sarah, Rivkah, Rochel V"Leah" (G-d Should bless you to be like our Matriarchs, Sarah, Rivkah, Rochel, and Leah).
Mrs. Chaya Samowitz, Deputy Principal at Shearim Torah High School For Girls, spoke to the girls about the different middos (character traits)of our Imahos (matriarchs) and explained that because we are a daughter of the Imahos, a Bas Kedoshim, we nave this middos in our genes.
The girls made Challah and learned a beautiful song that will G-d willing be performed at the Bas Mitzbah banquet at the end of year.
This program was designed by Morah Rivkah Gruenebaum.
