First graders at the Shulamith School for Girls in Cedarhurst received their first siddurim at a special Sunday event. Parents and grandparents were delighted by the presentations, which featured Shabbat-themed songs such as “Shalom Aleichem” and “Lecha Dodi.”
The girls performed in pairs and impressed everyone with their beautiful singing and exceptional choreography. Joyce Yarmak, principal of the Lower Division, addressed the audience, speaking about the importance of transmitting our mesorah to the next generation.
As each talmidah was called to the stage to receive her siddur, the pride, confidence, and joy of the ba’alot simcha lit up the auditorium.
The event ended with coffee and refreshments served in the gym, and each girl received a framed photograph, Shulamith lunch bag, and scrumptious cookie.
