The Shevach students were welcomed back to school with an exhilarating event. On Wednesday evening, September 9, all were invited to a Back to School Extravaganza run by G.O. heads Elana Adler, Chaya Shalva Boiangiu, Dassa Gottesman, Chaya Praeger, and Miriam Romm, with Shevach educational administrator Mrs. Devorah Kovitz coordinating the exciting program.

The MTA Class of 2024 had an amazing time on their Freshman Hike! They explored the local community on a hike to the Little Red Lighthouse and also enjoyed sports and engaging activities designed to help them get to know one another. Their Cub2Lion Senior mentors joined the fun for a barbecue lunch and exciting games. It was the perfect way for Freshmen to bond together as a grade, make new friends, and spend time with their rebbeim outside the classroom. MTA is proud to offer an enhanced Freshman Experience, including fun events like this one, guidance sessions, and team-building workshops, which enable talmidim to bond cohesively as a grade and interact with boys with whom they may not share classes.

With the Yamim Nora’im fast approaching, classes and activities at the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls focused on Elul inspiration starting with the first days of school!

We are off to an amazing start to the school year at HALB Lev Chana! The children have acclimated beautifully to being back at school. In each class/cohort, children are reconnecting with old friends and getting to know new ones, learning new routines, and enjoying many exciting activities. Of course, Rosh HaShanah is in the air, as well! With safety as our primary focus, it is truly great to be Back Home@Lev Chana!


Excitement and anticipation were in the air at the Bais Yaakov Academy of Queens as all classes viewed a pre-recorded video of the Midos Program Opening Assembly. Despite each class watching the presentation on their own SmartBoard, there was a sense of achdus and ruach as the school-wide program was viewed simultaneously by all first through eighth grade classes. Mrs. Nechama Jurkowitz, limudei kodesh principal, introduced the theme of the year Tav Shin Pei Alef (5781) with the pasuk “HaPaam Odeh es Hashem – This time I will thank Hashem.” The year-long theme is OPPORTUNITIES OF APPRECIATION. Our motto is “A Time to Think and Thank.” This year our spunky redheaded mascot, named Yehudis, will be encouraging the girls to focus on the positive and be grateful and appreciate.
