Flatbush Students Participate in Yeshiva League Model Congress 2014

The Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School's Model Congress team participated in the annual Yeshiva League Model Congress event, organized and hosted by HAFTR High School, on Wednesday, March 5, 2014. After an inspiring keynote presentation by renowned defense attorney Benjamin Brafman, over 300 student "delegates" from tri-state area day schools split into various congressional committees to learn firsthand about the legislative process through intense and passionate debate by presenting, amending and voting on original bill proposals.
