One doesn’t usually picture a winter wonderland in a school parking lot but...we had an ice skating rink!

Rosh Chodesh Adar was welcomed at the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls with an incredible program sponsored by the Student Council on Wednesday, February 11. SKA students glided on ice to pulsating Hebrew music in a fully equipped rink complete with complimentary skates. Steaming cups of hot cocoa were offered to offset the frigid outside temperature, but the spirited ruach really warmed everyone up.

While social distancing was maintained on the rink, students also had the opportunity to make hamantashen in the SKA gym. Prepared packages of dough, filler, and chocolate chips were utilized by happy bakers to create variations of this yom tov treat.

We can’t wait for Purim!
