    I went to stone ave also and there were many girls who were from various backgrounds and that was the beauty of the school in those days.Everyone got introduced to Lubavitch although at that time we did not study what they do today.Number 6- just keep your opinions to yourself.Everyone was welcome and the girls got along very well and there was none of the rigidity and judjment so prevalent today.It was a real Bais Rivkah and it was a lovely cohesive environment-i so remember morah matlin.
