The second session of Imahos U’banos opened in Crown Heights and Kingston, PA drawing mothers and daughters closer through Torah study.
By Anash.org reporter
It’s not only the boys who are hitting the books this week.
In honor of Hakhel, the Women’s Circle kicked off its seventh season of Imahos U’banos with an expansion to three new locations. In addition to three venues in Crown Heights, mother and daughter chavrusas will now be learning in Kingston, Pennsylvania and Pomona, NY and South Florida.
Imahos U’banos, or IUB, invites mothers and daughters to study together each month. The program offers prepared study guides connected to the parsha and yoma d’pagra with the option of girls bringing their own homework or study material. Like Avos U’banim, treats, raffles, and a grand finale event are par for the course.
Interestingly, it isn’t these perks that keep girls returning. Many look forward to this uninterrupted, focused time with their mothers as the treat of the month. Several moms have said it is their chance to really connect one on one and see where their daughters are in learning and life. IUB welcomes girls from age seven and up and is open to everyone in the community.
The Imahos Ubanos program will be held on a monthly basis, providing learning material to participants, although women and girls are welcome to bring their own as well as refreshments and prizes.
Crown Heights locations are co-sponsored by The Smetana Family and Lebovic Family. The Florida locations are coordinated by Hindel Levitin and Rivky Katz in loving memory of Hadassah Lebovic.
