Senior Class Visits 9/11 Memorial: A Reflection

     Last week, our seniors took a trip to see the newly completed 9/11 memorial. The newly-opened Memorial is a powerful testament to the most significant world event in our lifetimes that took place just a short ride away from our homes.

      The program was a moving experience that strengthened the bonds between our students and united them as a senior class. Each student had an opportunity to connect with the event and the memorial itself in a special and personal way. Each senior was assigned a victim of the attacks on 9/11, and was asked to gather as much information as they could about the person. At the memorial, our students gathered in small groups and shared the information with other class members. Each student created a commemorative marking of the victim they researched.

      The program was extremely moving and special, and the Yeshivah of Flatbush Senior Class of 2012 is honored to have been able to visit and participate in honoring the memories of those lost on that fateful day.
