Valley Torah Girls School had a week of festivities to celebrate Chanuka. It all began with a spirited Dreidel competition. Semi-finalists from eight teams competed in a championship round in which senior Deena Denbo was the clear winner, rolling 6 gimmels in a row!
The week culminated in the long awaited Chanuka Chagiga in which the humble Valley Torah social hall was transformed into a ballroom circa the Great (Gatsby) Maccabees of the Roaring Twenties. Valley Torah was filled with flapper fashion, music and energy! After a lesson in 1920’s style make-up by VT alumna Jessica (Golriz) Hyam, the girls competed to replicate the most authentic 20’s look!
A dessert and salad buffet was followed by the creation of flapper headbands studded with bling and feathers…they were the “bees knees” of the Roaring 20’s!
The Chagiga culminated in the long awaited Chinese Auction in which coveted prizes such as a Shabbos with Rabbi and Mrs. Biron, Mrs. Orloff’s Challah, and Mrs. Striks’ S’mores Bars were eagerly bid on! A Happy Chanuka was enjoyed by all! Many thanks to STUCO advisor Mrs. Shira Pollack and Chagiga heads Iara Sereur, Sarah Lucas, Orah Shafa, Rochel Leah Raskin, and Miriam Niessany for an amazing party!
The highlight of today’s Chanukah Chagigah (besides the shwarma, falafel and amazing dancing) was, without a doubt, the highly competitive Chidon. The excitement at the Chidon – hosted by Rabbi Biron – rivaled the best game show.
Before and after the Chidon, there was lively dancing to Rabbi Moshe Samuels’ music.
