Flatbush Students Paticipate in the VEI 2016 NYC Trade Show

Yeshivah of Flatbush students ventured to the 69th Regiment Armory in midtown Manhattan to participate in the Virtual Enterprise International 2016 New York City Trade Show. The students were a part of Mr. Kweller’s Virtual Enterprise class and have been working all year to create, manage and market their virtual business Tcorporation, a financial management and advisement company. Students have been involved in every aspect of running their virtual business including putting together business and marketing plans, completing financial reports, developing webpages and marketing campaigns, and managing sales and interactions with other virtual enterprise firms.
The Trade Show was an opportunity for students to sell their products and personally interact with other Virtual Enterprise firms from throughout New York City, the United States, and the World. Yeshivah of Flatbush students created their own booth promotional material and newsletters explaining both long term and short term market trends and explaining various retirement accounts including 401K and Roth IRA accounts. The young entrepreneurs were able to successfully demonstrate their knowledge of the financial industry to other students and industry professionals and business experts that came to see the event and learn about the virtual companies. The students enjoyed themselves, learned a great deal, demonstrated their knowledge of the financial industry, and made important connections with the business leaders.

Evening of the Arts 2016

Art is defined as 'the various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance'. And all the faces of art were certainly on display when Yeshivah of Flatbush held it's annual Evening of the Arts, on Thursday, May 26th. This special night celebrated the many talented teachers in our Arts Department--and their many talented students.
The overflowing crowd who attended were treated to museum-quality visual art in galleries that stretched from the sub-basement to the lobby to the Beit Midrash. Paintings, sculptures, photography, graphic design and so much more adorned our building.
In addition to those displays, the talents of the performing arts divisions were on full display in a 90 minutes showcase of our best--both students and teachers; there were singers, actors, and musicians who performed with passion and amazing skill. Each act had the audience thinking 'it can't get better than this'---and then it did.

All in all, this was an evening that celebrates one of the most special aspects of the Yeshivah of Flatbush; our commitment to instilling a love for theater, music, and art in our students. ~Ms. Shelley Kaplowitz
