An SKA reunion in Israel


The annual Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls Israel alumni reunion is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year.

At the gathering at the Netzach Yisrael shul in Jerusalem, on Nov. 28, religious studies principal Elisheva Kaminetsky Israel guidance and senior grade adviser Paghit Ralbag welcomed the girls who are attending Israeli seminaries this year.!

A  panel of six SKA alumni who have made aliyah and are now living in different cities throughout Israel — Chani Aryeh Panitch ’17, Shana Margules Wurtzburger ‘01, Penina Wein Bernstein ‘10, Dahlia Lebowitz Reinheimer ‘99, Dr. Batya Herzberg Zuckerman ‘06 and Talia Williams Eisen ’02 — shared their experiences beyond high school and SKA and reflected on their current lives. It was very uplifting to hear first hand about living in Israel and the challenges they faced when first making aliyah. The SKA Class of ’22 were inspired and left with new perspectives and memories.  The reunion was truly a highlight of the year.

Each SKA alumna also had her own personal meeting with Mrs. Kaminetsky and Mrs. Ralbag to discuss her progress and explore her aspirations for the year.  In addition to the reunion and individual meetings, the SKA administrators visited moof the seminaries the alumni attend.
