One of the most meaningful of SKA programs during Aseres Y’mei T’shuvah is the annual Tefillah on the Beach, held each year on the Atlantic Beach boardwalk.
An overflowing two buses of SKA students – more than ever before – left the Gourmet Glatt parking lot at 6:30 a.m. on both Thursday and Friday, September 29 and 30, excited to have a meaningful t’filah experience. The beautiful clear day and the tranquil beach heightened the davening and recitation of S’lichos.
After davening, the girls went to the Atlantic Beach Jewish Center for a lovely breakfast. They also had the opportunity to write their reflections on the morning’s prayer session and share their thoughts with Mrs. Elisheva Kaminetsky, Principal, Judaic Studies, Mrs. Shira Englander, Dean of Students, and the faculty members and madrichot who joined.
SKA’s Tefillah on the Beach and the t’shuvah workshops back in school provided much inspiration for Yom Kippur and the month of Tishrei.
