Welcome to Happyville: Adar in Sharfman’s!

March 16, 2017 

Rosh Chodesh AdarAdar is a happy month anywhere, but at Sharfman’s it’s really HAPPY! We kicked off Adar with a real surprise! We kicked off Adar with one surprise after another.

We had one morning of decorating our Beit Midrash, singing, dancing and davening. Plus, we were joined by various faculty members!! You can really feel the holiday spirit and festive mindset that is found not jut in Sharfman’s, but all throughout our Ramat Eshkol neighborhood!

Next up was our in-school Purim Seudah and the famous Bnot Torah/Sharfman’s Purim Chagigah that was amazing 🙂

Enjoy the pics and remember to still have a very HAPPY ADAR 🙂

2 Day Eilat Tiyul: Sun & Fun…Sharfman’s Style!

March 9, 2017 

Eilat TripYou could feel the excitement in the air as we all got ready for our trip down to Eilat!!!

We left at at 5:00 am and started our activities with sandslides in Timna Park right outside of  Eilat. After that we were ready to jump in the water which is exactly what we did, we headed to the separate beach to enjoy sun and sand. We ended our day with some shopping at the ice-mall and then headed back to the hotel for dinner.

The next morning started with a delicious breakfast from the hotel and then we were off to the Oceanarium.  It was so interesting, we didn’t just see fish, we saw life in the coral reef, we saw turtles of all kinds, and we were lucky enough to get there in time to watch them feed the sharks. It was fascinating!

Our highlight of the trip though had to be our cruise out on the Red Sea. We got on a beautiful 3 level yacht and after a few minutes of sailing we anchored down to the middle of the sea. A giant inflatable

Gourmet Hot Chocolate Buffet Bayit Cham!

March 7, 2017 

Hot Cocoa Bar and Hot Pretzel night-RoseThis was one to remember! Our Bayit Cham was better than ever! As we arrived from the cold and rainy outdoors to the cozy home of our Rakezet, we were greeted with a dazzling display of every flavor of hot cocoa imaginable. From fancy milk chocolate spoons, to peanut butter, cinnamon, mocha- you name it, we had it! And to top it off (if you’ll excuse the pun), we were able to choose from the most delicious toppings known to mankind- whipped cream, chocolate curls, marshmallows, an assortment of candies- to name but a few!

We snuggled on the couches sipping our heavenly hot chocolate combos, while happily munching on different flavors of popcorn.

Aaahhh, there’s nothing like a warm and cozy home away from home on a wintry night like this one… And one second, what was that you said?? The night’s not over yet??

!! Adar Treasure Hunt in Malcha Mall !!

February 27, 2017 

Day at the MallAdar is a great month anywhere, but at Sharfman’s it’s really AWESOME!

Just as we finished our first class of the morning, Rabbi Sharfman came in and told us that a bus was waiting for us downstairs. We got on the bus without any idea of where we were headed or why. We just knew that it was Adar and this was Sharfman’s.

Soon the bus dropped us off at the Malcha Mall. There, our Mechanchet divided us up into small teams, each led by a Madricha, Rakezet or Tutor. We were told that we were on a Treasure Hunt and the objects of our search were our Shana Betters. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?

Well, it’s amazing what a change of outfit, a borrowed sheitel or hat and a pair of sunglasses can do to change a person’s appearance.

Of course, there are always some people who nobody notices, like the customer in the restaurant, or the shopping Mom 🙂

February 23, 2017 

Raquel KirschenbaumLast Thursday, we had the special opportunity to hear from one of the most popular speakers in Israel: Mrs. Raquel Kirszenbaum. In fact, while she also does teach our Shana Bet she is now speaking in South Africa.

Born and raised in Panama, Mrs. Raquel Kirszenbaum oozes a passion for Mrs. Kirszenbaum isn’t just a speaker or a teacher. She is hilarious!! She is inspiring!! It was an amazing morning in which we got to hear a special talk called: “A Totally New Approach!”

With her signature sense of humor and a lot of happiness she shared her love and the beauty of the Torah.

We all walked away with a fresh perspective on what it means to be in a Jewish woman in 2017 and beyond.

But that’s not all…During the break, we came upstairs and were greeted to platters and platters of freshly cut vegetables and the most amazing baked cakes and cookies by our Mechanechet and Rakazot. Plus, there was also Rabbi Sharfman there to serve us his amazing hot chocolate topped with whipped cream. All in all, it…

Pizza Party Bayit Cham!!

February 22, 2017 

Pizza Bayit Cham - Silverman (Feb, 2017)We had the most delicious dinner ever at our Bayit Cham this past Wednesday night! The evening was make your own pizza night, and that’s just what we did! We got to start from scratch, making the pizza dough and creating our very own delicious version of pizza sauce. We each got our own pizza pan and got to work making our personalized pizza pies.

The choice of toppings was endless- we got to choose from onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, and of course lots and lots of cheese. We baked them in the oven and from the moment they came out, they were gone within seconds! They were steaming hot and absolutely scrumptious.

We had a wonderful time schmoozing, singing, and enjoying each other’s company at yet another awesome Bayit Cham!

Schoolwide Living Emunah Campaign

February 2, 2017 

Living EmunahBnot Torah/Sharfman’s is famous for being more than just a seminary and very much looks to help each and every one of our students not just learn in seminary but experience real growth and connect with Hashem. To that end, many students turned to our Mechanchot — Mrs. Fuld and Mrs. Gibraltar — wanting to learn how to connect and strengthen their Emunah for life! After all, learning in seminary is easy. However, not just having Emunah but living with Emunah..that. takes. work!

And so, we have begun a schoolwide campaign to learn about Emunah and we are all reading the famous book entitled: Living Emunah.
