Evening of the Arts 2013!

“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on” said Albert Einstein. On Tuesday, April 30th the Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School did just that when it held its 3rd annual Evening of the Arts, coordinated by Mrs. Rachel Winkler. This mix of music, art, and drama was once again a huge success, showcasing the amazing talents of both our students and our Arts faculty.

With a gallery of art and graphic design on display downstairs (organized by Jason Novetsky and Therese Berkowitz) and performances upstairs, all of Flatbush was awash in creativity; so much so, it would be impossible to name everyone. But just a few of the highlights of the evening were a duet by Michael Zalta and our own Rabbi Levy singing Exodus, the Chamber Choir singing In My Life, David Siller and Liba Hornstein performing a scene from Driving Miss Daisy, and the rousing finale, One Day More from "Les Misérables". In addition, Arts faculty members Sally Shatzkes, Brian Gelfand, Joel Hessel, Lilia Mauskop, Erika Shaposhnik, and Shelley Kaplowitz directed their students in their performances and/or performed themselves. Best of all, the audience was packed with family, friends, and Flatbush students, all of whom had a wonderful time! Special thanks to the Ladies Auxiliary for sponsoring the evening. Here's to next year, and another opportunity to see the terrific talent being nurtured in the Yeshivah!
