A special event took place on a Monday morning at the Shulamith School for Girls in Cedarhurst as a group of dedicated fathers turned the school’s auditorium into a Bait Knesset for a day.
Students in grades 6 and 8 have been learning hilchot tefilla year with their teachers, morahs Shoshana Fischman and Alisa Schreier. The seventh graders learned halachot last year. The minyan enabled the girls to put into practice what they have learned about responding to kaddish, kedusha and borchu, and listening to chazarat hashatz and the Torah reading.
Stewart Greenberg, father of eighth grader Shoshi, served as the baal tefillah; Akiva Sacknovitz, father of sixth grader Eliana, read the Torah, and Chaim Schneider, father of seventh grader Lani, served as gabbai.
