Model Congress

Congratulations to the entire Model Congress team for their performance at the HAFTR Yeshiva League Model Congress event that took place on Wednesday, March 14, 2012. They all worked very hard in their committees, presenting bills and debating legislation with other delegates. From among the hundreds of participants, 10 Yeshivah of Flatbush students were recognized with awards for their efforts: team captain Jessamyn Sutton, Ariel Aiash, Jacob Setton, Tomer Kornfeld, Shelly Reizen, Michael Bildirici, Viviane Wahba, Miriam Einhorn, Jamie Baum, and Hymie Anteby, who won a gavel for "Best Delegate" in his committee. The conference proved to be an enjoyable and educational experience for all, highlighted by a wonderful address by an AIPAC representative, in addition to the lively and informative committee sessions.
