Rosh Chodesh Iyar was celebrated in Shevach High School with an inspiring and enjoyable breakfast. The GO theme of the month, “Teamwork,” was addressed by Mrs. Chaviva Pfeiffer, teacher and mechaneches at the Bais Yaakov Academy of Queens. Mrs. Pfeiffer, daughter of Rabbi Paysach Krohn, has inspired audiences for many years both as a speaker and as a writer. She creatively spoke of Team and of Work, and tied both in with simchah and avodas Hashem. Her words were warmly received, and the girls left with much to think about and internalize into their daily lives.
