The sixth-grade year-long Kanfei Yud Beis Program culminated in a beautiful and meaningful mother-daughter bas mitzvah celebration. The goal of the program is to prepare the girls for their transition into becoming a bas mitzvah. Throughout the year, Mrs. Elisa Alpert, creator of the program, delivered workshops to the students on various topics, such as “My Relationship with Hashem,” “My Relationship with My Family,” “My Relationship with the Community,” etc. Each workshop added a new dimension to the girls’ understanding of the responsibilities and expectations of a bas mitzvah girl as she enters this new stage in life. Mrs. Alpert also invited special guest speakers to enhance her workshops. Her dedication to the program was admirable, and her gentleness and sincerity endeared her to all the girls.
