SHINE for Middle School Girls
On Sunday mornings, middle-school girls meet, voluntarily, to fortify their off-day with a bit of spirituality and positive social engagement. Shacharis, Tehillim, Positive Word Power for Teens, an age-appropriate book on the laws of permitted speech, and lessons gleaned from the sefer, Mesilas Yesharim, make indelible marks on the pure souls of these impressionable youth. After davening and learning, students express their creativity at such activities as customized-soap making, headband decorating, and accessory-holder building. Each session gives students the opportunity feel like stars - it gives them their chance to shine.
