More than 3,500 Bais Rivkah alumni enjoyed Bais Rivkah’s Embrace Live reunion on Wednesday night. Whether in person or live, the alumni experienced an entertaining and inspired high-level evening.

When the former students entered, they were greeted by a magnificent 80-year-old history museum. Photos, past and present, hung from the ceiling. Period uniforms were on display. Production videos were released, yearbooks spanning decades were lined up, and powerful stories were featured.

The host of the evening program, Ms. Aidela Blesofsky, shared how the Rebbe encouraged his mother to learn Bais Rivkah. The esteemed Chairman of the Board, Rabbi Abraham and Mrs. Batsheva Shemtov, told how Bais Rivkah was founded.

This was followed by four powerful EmBRace talks.
Mrs. Rishe Deitsch spoke about her transition to Bais Rivkah as a resident of Worcester, Massachusetts.
Mrs. Dena Schusterman empowered mothers to listen to their children’s feelings.
Mrs. Chanie Minkowicz reflected on the strong value system shared by his parents and Bais Rivkah.
miss Sarah Hodakov reminded the crowd how each individual was chosen to be in Bais Rivkah, on purpose.

The production melody, directed by Mrs. Hindel Levitin, took a musical journey down memory lane, from performances from the 1950s to today.

miss Zeesy Gourevich, the dynamic force behind Zappy by Zeesy, hosted an enthusiastic live game show. Participants were asked about many of Bais Rivkah’s “firsts”, as well as today’s program. Members of the public pressed their clickers to answer questions, participate in polls and guess staff members from vintage photos. Five lucky members of the public won prizes for their knowledge of the Bais Rivkah.

The focus turned to the future with Chinuch Tank. Three candidates have launched important initiatives to improve the chinuch of our students. Members of the public voted for their choice of the final three. Congratulations to Mrs. Chaya Chazan, winner of the $25,000 scholarship. She will use the funding to create a literature program that teaches writing skills and literary tools using Jewish literature.

This unforgettable evening ended with a catchy “80s” melody performed by the students of the Bais Rivkah high school. The participants left inspired by the magnificent history of the school they attended and the bright future that awaits it.
