Pesach Sheini is the yahrtzeit of Chaya Spalter obm who passed away one year ago at the age of 11.
The girls of Bais Chaya Mushka, the school she attended in Los Angeles, have been honoring her memory in a variety of ways, including shiurim, a Hakhel with their mothers, and a very special, meaningful rooftop ceremony.
Beforehand, each girl chose a dedicated mitzvah to do in honor of Chaya. They wrote down their mitzvah, and then went on the roof of the school and sent them up to shemayim in the form of balloons.
“It was a beautiful sight, and very moving for everyone present,” a student said.
