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, held this year on Monday evening, November 28, Mrs. Elisheva Kaminetsky, Principal of Religious Studies, and Mrs. Paghit Ralbag, Director of Israel Guidance and Senior Grade Level Advisor, welcomed the girls who are attending Israeli seminaries this year. Everyone enjoyed a delicious meal, happy mingling, spirited schmoozing, and much reminiscing!
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 firsthand about living in Israel and the challenges they faced when first making aliyah. The SKA Class of ’22 were inspired, and they 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 the seminaries that the alumnae attend.
Our graduates will always be part of the SKA community!
