Yom Ha'atzmaut: Israel at 64

Yom Ha'atzmaut was celebrated in multiple ways this year at the Yeshivah of Flatbush!

Our Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations were enhanced by the announcement that Akiva Abramowitz, a senior in our High School, placed second in the world in the 49th International Bible Contest for Jewish Youth (Hidon HaTanach Ha-Olami) held in Jerusalem. He was first among Diaspora students. Akiva’s hard work, commitment to learning Torah, and natural abilities enabled him to achieve this unique distinction. We congratulate him and Rabbi Taler, who served as his advisor.
