In honor of Parshas Chayei Sarah, Yeshivat Merkaz HaTorah hosted their Fourth Annual Mommy & Me Challah Bake on Sunday, November 17. The school mothers and students gathered together to celebrate and learn all about the special mitzvah of baking challah. Every year, the mothers of the school make an effort to rearrange their schedules in order to attend.

The Kanfei Yud Beis 6th Grade Bas Mitzvah Program is underway at the Bais Yaakov Academy of Queens. It began with a surprise breakfast in the gym, which was beautifully set up and decorated. The girls were introduced to the “Kanfei Yud Beis” – Wings of Privilege Program, to invoke the attitude of privilege and potential when turning twelve and becoming a bas mitzvah. Mrs. Jurkowitz, Limudei Kodesh principal, began the program by recounting her own bas mitzvah experience. She then described the story of the bird that discovers that its heavy wings, when used correctly, are, indeed, not a burden, but the greatest gifts for soaring high. Each girl was able to relate to her own “wings of privilege” represented by the Torah and the mitzvos, which should never be looked upon as a burden, but rather to be fully utilized as a bas mitzvah.
