During the last week of the Hakhel year, women in Alma-Ata gathered in the Gold Kazane Hall for a special event dedicated to the Mitzvah of Taharas Hamishpocha.
The women enjoyed spa treatments including massages, manicures, make-up sessions and prepared their own scented bath salts.
Guest speaker Ruchama Rosenstein, founder of the 'Apeeryon Organization' in Israel, inspired the crowd with stories of people who merited many miracles and blessings as a result of keeping the laws of Taharas Hamishpocha.
The event culminated with a gala banquet. Women raised glasses of wine, wished each other L'chaim and blessed one another for a happy new year.
Participants received a gift from the 'Apeeryon Organization', a book about the Mitzvah of Taharas Hamishpocha.
