I don't know what inspired you to think about us—about the girls sitting in public school, tapping their feet, itching for something deeper, for something real—but I’m so grateful you did.
At Michlelet Mechina, I saw girls who authentically cared for one another, who were unapologetically themselves. Most of all, I saw women and rabbanim who embodied Torah and who made it completely accessible to me even with my limited background in Jewish education and in Hebrew.
This program inspired me to become religious and gave me the resources to continue back home in America.
Now, every asher yatzar that I breathe, every Shabbat kodesh I greet, every bracha, and even every giggle is filled with the joy and the peace of mind that I am a Yid working on my relationship with G-d.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. If it wasn’t for your tireless efforts to make Michlelet Mechina a reality, I may never have had this beautiful life. It means the world to me that you chose to invest in us.
I pray that this program can continue to light up the eyes and lives of all girls from public school who have this inner desire for Yiddishkeit.
With much appreciation,
