Sha’arei Bina Holds Yachad All-Girls Shabbaton

South-Florida-logo

Yachad is a national Jewish organization that helps bring disabled people into a full Jewish life. On March 7, Sha’arei Bina had the privilege of being the first school in Florida to generate an all-girl Yachad Shabbaton.

Yachad flew adviser Sari Mizrahi from New York to run the programming for the Shabbaton. She helped create a remarkable event.

As the hours passed, friendships were created and bonds grew strong. In one way or another, everyone gained something from that Shabbat. The experience will never be forgotten and the students will be forever thankful for this opportunity.

As 2014 vice-president of Yachad and a proud Sha’arei Bina student, I believe an event like this should not only be an unforgettable memory but repeated in the future. To say the weekend was a success would be an understatement.

Many thanks to Mrs. Bodkins, Tzippi Rosen and the many “behind the scenes” workers.

Editor’s Note: Talia Mizrahi is a student at Sha’arei Bina Torah Academy for Girls, located at 1557 164th Street in North Miami Beach.

“Thanks to a local philanthropist who shares our core mission, we now are able to connect more Jewish teens to Israel than ever before,” said Todd Cohn, executive director of Southern NCSY.

Last month we outlined how a few years after Judah Touro’s death a public movement was inaugurated by the citizens of New Orleans to erect a monument to his memory, and that opposition to this tribute came from a number of rabbis throughout the country who claimed that Judaism forbade the erection of any graven […]

Marceau suggested a dark reason for his wordless art: “The people who came back from the [concentration] camps were never able to talk about it…. My name is Mangel. I am Jewish. Perhaps that, unconsciously, contributed towards my choice of silence.”

Anna Henriques, who hopes to one day head back to Jamaica, says, “Rabbi Raskin must be willing to respect what exists in Jamaica. The way to the future is to gently bring in the traditions of the past and at the same time embrace the idiosyncrasies of the Jamaican people.”
