Bruriah Welcomes Cheshvan

Suddenly it’s all happening at the safari! Bruriah’s safari-themed Rosh Chodesh celebration was a spirited way to welcome Mar Cheshvan. Bruriah students, “park rangers” and “tourists” snacked on cereal, doughnuts, orange juice and chocolate milk in a safari-decorated gym. The GO student government led a singing contest and had fun giveaways. GO President Michal Herman (Teaneck) is “most excited about having the whole school get together to spend time with friends, play some games and enjoy a delicious breakfast.”

In anticipation of the Great Big Challah Bake, the entire freshman grade went to Factory 220 to help prepare for the 1000 women expected to attend the event. The girls were divided among the three workstations. At the ingredients station, 40 girls measured out flour and pre-made 600 bags of flour, 20 girls measured out the yeast/sugar mixture into a total of 1000 containers and 20 girls tore 1000 sheets of aluminum foil. The spirited and helpful girls had a boatload of fun. The Great Big Challah Bake attracted more than 800 women and girls from Bergen County who came together to learn about the mitzvah of challah and make their own.
