On Tuesday, September 24, Central Junior and Senior students were privileged to hear from Rabbanit Racheli Fraenkel, Dean of Students at Nishmat, and mother of Naftali Fraenkel z”l, who was killed by terrorists in Israel in 2014, along with Eyal Yifrach and Gilad Shaar z”l. Mrs. Fraenkel spoke to the students about t’filah – the variety of Jewish approaches to it, the importance of being present in t’filah, even for only a moment, and her own experience with t’filah in tragedy. Her words of Torah and personal story were an inspiring moment in the lead-up to Rosh HaShanah.
