Over 400 high school girls from nearly 20 schools around the world, including Australia, London, Montreal, Toronto, Pittsburgh and Chicago, will converge on Crown Heights during Chof Beis Shvat weeked for the annual Inter-School convention.
Hosted by Bais Rivkah School of Crown Heights and coordinated by Naomi Touger and Shoshi Hecht, the convention will bring 10th and 12th grade girls together for workshops, speakers and events.
“The theme of this year’s convention is ‘We can, I must,'” Touger told COLlive.com. “Focusing on how each and every one of us has an obligation and the kochos to do our Shlichus.”
The organizing committee has planned a great lineup of speakers for the program, including Rabbi Shmuel Rothman – Shliach in Pittsburgh, PA, Mrs. Malka Touger of Jerusalem, Shlucha Leah Namdar of Sweden, Shlucha Yehudis Bluming of North Carolina and author Rabbi Shais Taub.
Highlights of the program include a Friday night meal, Melava Malka and grand Banquet Sunday evening at Bais Rivka Campus Chomesh.
