Hundreds of women and girls gathered at the Lubavitch Yeshiva last night for the annual Machon L’Yahadus auction, part of the anniversary of the Rabbanit Chaya Mushka Schneersonwife of Rabbi. All the audience chairs were filled as a large crowd showed up to hear the beautiful words that were shared.
Rabbi Shloma Majeskidirector of Machon L’Yahadus, addressed the crowd about the school’s mission to educate young Jewish women on their journey to true Torah Judaism, empowering them to continue building their own warm Jewish homes.
Among the many highlights, Tova Meyers of Scranton, Pennsylvania, a current student at Machon L’Yahadus, shared her story of connecting with Yiddishkeit and the role Machon has had in her life.
Mrs. Sarah Koron and Mrs. Sara Chana Silverstein inspired and entertained the crowd by sharing their respective fascinating journeys. Current and former students of Machon provided the audience with a rousing musical rendition of three different Nigunim. The host of the evening was the lovely Mrs. Miriam Friedfertig.
