Eight special young ladies fromthe Shulamith School for Girls in Cedarhurst entered Quorum Salon to take part in a wonderful mitzvah.
They each cut off 10 or more inches of their lovely locks to donate to Zichron Menachem, an organization in Israel that provides support for children with cancer. Their hair will be used to make wigs for children who have lost theirs to cancer treatments.
For the third year in a row, Anthony, Davy, and the stylists at the Central Avenue salon provided this service for free. Each of Shulamith’s intrepid young ladies was made to feel beautiful by the restyling of their now shorter hair, and the positive impact their donations will make on children undergoing treatment.
The students were delighted when their principal, Rookie Billet, arrived at the salon to donate her own hair! Mrs. Billet said, “I was inspired by the girls who participated last year and decided then to grow my hair so that I could participate this year.”
The girls were accompanied on the outing by Rachel Steiner, director of student activities and coordinator of the event, and by their moms. The school was proud and inspired by these selfless young ladies, who gave of themselves to help others!
The eight girls are: second graders Kira Gurevich and Shani Edery, third grader Shira Levine, fifth grader Ahuva Moskowitz, and seventh graders Rachel Levine, Michal Moskowitz, Noy Edery and Talia Bennett.
