SGO President Lighting the Menorah with Mayor Bloomberg

This Chanukah I was given the opportunity to light the menorah with Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The event was held in the Jewish Heritage Museum, located in Battery Park, Manhattan. I was invited to represent the Yeshivah of Flatbush as the delegate from Brooklyn. Other students from the other boroughs were invited as well. The school was awarded this honor because they were noted as being at the forefront of chesed for their commendable hurricane sandy relief efforts. It was truly an honor to represent the school and to partake in this קידוש ה׳.   ~Michelle Sabbagh, SGO President
