It was a morning of inspiration and flower arranging fun!

YSZ HS for Girls hosted a beautiful mother-daughter breakfast for their current and incoming freshmen this Sunday morning in honor of the upcoming holiday of Shavuot. The room was decorated with beautiful springtime flowers and a festive breakfast spread.

Mrs. Zerykier, the Menahelet, opened the event by appreciating the power of women to build their families. She spoke about how Megillat Ruth is read on Shavuot to inspire all of klal Yisrael to live lives committed to Torah. There is so much that we can learn from Ruth. Ruth gave up a life of luxury and royalty to take on Torah u’mitzvot. While she may have initially abandoned a life of luxury, she embodied true royalty of chesed, tz’niut, and k’dushah, and merited becoming the mother of the greatest royal family, Malchut Beit David, the House of King David and, one day, to Mashiach.

The program continued with a mother-daughter music video, made by the student choir, and a floral arrangement class given by a local florist, Estebelle Flowers. Mothers and daughters learned some great tips about how to cut, hydrate, and arrange flowers. They laughed, enjoyed each other’s company, and went home with some exquisite bouquets.
