The excitement was palpable as Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe’s Pre-1A talmidim celebrated the momentous occasion of receiving their first siddurim. Having spent the school year learning to read, the boys are now prepared to learn how to daven from a siddur.

This past Monday morning, the Pre-1A boys received their siddurim at their Siddur Party in the Ner Mordechai ballroom. The boys have been anticipating this huge milestone and have put in much effort in their practice and preparation for this special day.

The moros taught and explained to the boys many beautiful songs all about t’filah. At the party, Rabbi Pacht, the menahel, spoke to the boys about the priceless gift of t’filah, explaining that we are able to speak to Hashem every day, and how proud he, the Yeshiva, and their families are that the boys have reached this milestone.

After the boys recited their parts and sang all the beautiful and meaningful songs, each boy was personally called up, and Rabbi Pacht presented each talmid with his own personalized siddur. The Yeshiva is grateful to Rabbi Bookson, Mrs. Levine, Morah Batsheva Mittel, Morah Libby Borr, and their assistants, Morah Malky Muggia, Morah Tali Rosenthal, Morah Aviva Mittel, Morah Esti Goldman, and Morah Dina Kiffel for assisting the boys in developing their k’riah skills. Thanks are also extended to Rabbi Schauder, Rabbi Welcher, and Mr. Ari Kohn for all their help behind the scenes and to the many families for their siddur dedications.
