Countless hours went into writing the scripts for two humorous skits, created in large part by the girls themselves. Under the guidance of their drama teacher, Mrs. Malka Finman, the students practiced and perfected their parts over the past six months. Their hard work paid off; the audience was enthralled and captivated, at some points crying from laughter.

Guests were also treated to a beautiful array of cakes and delicacies baked by TGA Activities Director, Mrs. Chaya Wolbe, with the assistance of women from the community. Mrs. Grossman, General Studies Principal, inspired the crowd with beautiful words of divrei Torah on the subject of laughter.The mood of the evening was relaxing and enjoyable and everyone had a great time.

We’d like to thank all the women and girls that came out to support our students and TGA. We are so glad that we were able to put a smile on your face! May we share many more occasions of joy and laughter together in the future.

Community Service Day

May 20th, 2013

TGA students devoted the day after Shavuos to a special community service project. They visited the Houston Food Bank and worked for more than two hours to help pack food items for the food bank’s “backpack buddy” program. On Fridays, students who don’t have food at home receive a package of food items to last over the weekend, that includes enough food for two breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks.

Together, with a group from Sanford-Brown and Beth Yeshurun’s 5th grade, 3700 meals were packaged. The atmosphere in the room was energetic and productive, and it was gratifying to be part of such a huge operation.  No matter what each person’s role was, she knew that she was contributing to a valuable chessed project that would benefit many people all over Houston.
