Teaching Hebrew in the Modern Age

Thank You Card from Toulouse

Dear Flatbush Family:

I would like to share with you a beautiful and touching card prepared for you by the children of Gan Rashi in Toulouse, France. They were touched by the sympathy you extended to them in their time of grief and sorrow in the wake of the awful terrorist attack they endured. It has taken them time, but with advice of their guidance counseling team, they were prepared to express their gratitude.

I would also like to personally thank all of you for the support you showed me in such a difficult time, it meant a lot to me.

I wish you a peaceful and safe summer!

Ms. Hanny Zaltzman

Brooklyn Jewish Historical Night

Students with Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn borough president
 A group of students and I had the privilege of attending the Brooklyn Jewish Historical Night at borough hall. We heard several interesting speakers such as Marty Markowitz, the Brooklyn borough president, and Ron Shweiger, the Brooklyn historian. They spoke about how unique the Jewish community in Brooklyn is and that it is the largest Jewish community out if Israel. There were various types of Jews attending, representing the diversity of our community. Everybody there had an interesting story to tell. We interviewed many people telling their stories in video. The program was covered by the news as well. At the end, we met the borough president and other important figures and had a delicious kosher dinner.   ~Isaac Dayan 

I had an absolutely amazing experience at the Jewish heritage event, I heard stories from a ton of older Jews that were born and raised in Brooklyn. They told me how different it was back then and how happy they are to see the population going up, this made me very proud to be a Brooklyn Jew. ­­­­This event really inspired me to better connect with my Jewish heritage, plus it was amazing meeting Borough president Marty Markowitz. Thank you Mrs. Hanon & Pathfinders for putting together this opportunity for all of us who participated.   ~Tomer Kornfeld

Steven Burekhovich, captain, Joseph Deutsch, Soly Idy, Joe Khezrie and Mendy Isseroff competed on the Cablevision TV academic game show, The Challenge.  A rigorously competetive interschool contest, The Challenge, is a test of the depth and breadth of knowledge, ranging from pop culture to complex mathematical problems, as well as quick buzzer-finger reflexes.  After defeating the best and the brightest of other Brooklyn schools and winning the vaunted Brooklyn Championship, bringing home $2,500 and a trophy, the Flatbush Challenge team made it all the way to the Tri-State regionals. Congratulations to the Challenge team and to Rachail Kurtz, the Challenge coach/advisor.
