On Friday, November 23, a number of 7th-grade TAG girls participated in a bake sale to raise money for hurricane victims. The bake sale brought in close to $700, which was used to buy Chanukah presents for children who lost their toys in the storm. Many thanks to the girls who participated: Shira Frechter, Ayala Goldsmith, Naomi Schreiber, Malka Ostreicher, Laya Moskowitz, Elana Eisenberger, Dasi Pultman, Daniella Nueman, Shira Schonkopf, Kelly Zweig, Rosie Solomon, Aliza Friedman, Shira Frankel, Eta Jacobson, Kaila Jedwab, Ariella Nueman, and Shani Adest. The bake sale took place in the Frechter home and was sponsored in honor of Shira Frechter’s bas mitzvah. v
