The Torah-thon is an annual, meaningful, event hosted by the Bais Chaya Mushka Elementary School of Los Angeles, honoring all of the 5th Grade students and their mothers. This year, there were over 65 women in attendance.
In place of a formal graduation, this event is a beautiful culmination of all of their years of Torah learning in Bais Chaya Mushka, before they move on to the junior high division of the school, Bais Rebbe.
The Torah-thon was a hakhel event, featuring Torah, Teffila, and Tzedaka. There was also a delicious brunch served, and fun activities to celebrate the momentous occasion.
As a special salute to the legacy of the school, the girls and their mothers read the letter from the Rebbe to the first class of graduates from Bais Chaya Mushka.
Following the learning, the graduates worked very hard to prepare for the day, and performed for their mothers and teachers. Each graduate gave an original dvar Torah, or a speech expressing her personal hakoras hatov to a BCM teacher.
As a special gift from the Bais Chaya Mushka administration, the graduates each received a book of tehillim, personalized with her name on it.
