Senior Council 2015 Trip to Nets Vs. Maccabi Tel-Aviv Basketball Game

The first trip for Seniors 2015, which took place right before the Sukkot vacation was a major success. The Senior Council 2015 organized a trip to the preseason basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and the fan favorite of the night, the Maccabi Tel-Aviv, at the Barclays Center. The game itself was pretty even, ending with a 111-94 win for the Nets, but not without a fight from the Maccabis. The seniors enjoyed an aerial view of the stadium throughout the night, watching countless dunks, and some spectacular defensive plays by the Nets. What was truly heart warming was the outstanding support for the Israeli team surrounding us. Hundreds of Israeli flags were waving throughout the stands the entire night. Thank you to Rabbi Skolnick and Mr. Kweller for chaperoning the trip. Thank you to Mr. Galpert and of course to our Senior Council for organizing this amazing experience. This trip was the first of many more exciting ones to come during our senior year! ~Rochelle Tawil
