Flatbush Debate Team Comes Out On Top

Flatbush held it's annual debate on Wednesday night and it was a rousing success. 10 Yeshivot from the NY-NJ area attended and we had students all over the building, and with coaches and guests, there were over 100 people involved in this event, and 30 separate matches were played. Not only did the debate itself go off without a hitch, but our students did exceptionally well. Arguing the resolve: 'the Postal Service should be privatized', Jacob Setton and Isaac Dayan and Michelle Kreidmen and Jacqueline Baum both came in the top 3 of all 2-person teams competing, Joy Feinberg was one of the top 3 individual debaters, and best of all, the 8 members of the Flatbush team who competed last night, including also Charles Chakkalo, Sammy Tbeile, Bonnie Azoulay, took Flatbush to a win as #1 best overall school. Team captains Ariel Aiash and Michelle Sabbagh helped to organize and run the debate, other members of both the Varsity and JV teams worked on it as well, as did Mr. Brian Katz. The coordinator for the entire evening's event was the Flatbush Debate Coach, Ms. Shelley Kaplowitz.
