It was a sea of pleated skirts today Mar. 17, 2015 at Barclays Center as over 13,000 Bais Yaakov girls, mothers and grandmothers gathered together to observe the 80th yahrtzeit of Sara Schenirer.
Parking was banned on Flatbush Avenue during the memorial gathering as 270 busses flooded the area bringing participants for a morning of inspiration that included addresses by Rabbi Malkiel Kotler, Rabbi Ephraim Wachsman, Rebbetzin Rena Tarshish and video addresses from Israel featuring the Gerrer and Belzer Rebbetzins and Rebbetzin Leah Kolodetsky, daughter of Rav Chaim Kanievsky.
92 schools from the tri-state area and as far away as Baltimore, Toronto, Cleveland and Boston sent delegations to the tribute, with live video hookups held in various places both in the United States and abroad including Chicago, Minneapolis, Deer Park, London and Belgium.
