Yaara Feldman, a student at Ulpanat Tzfira, won first place at the 2019 international Math Olympiad!
The Math Olympiad attracts 8,000 participants and tests mathematical knowledge and reasoning skills. This competition is geared towards religious, female high school students, a population that is usually underrepresented in the field of math.
What are some of your responsibilities at the high school?
My job is to support our wonderful students, to be available to them as needed. If they’re looking for advice, to talk, or just want to relax with a cup of coffee, they can turn to me.
Innovation and flexibility are important components of a successful curriculum, as demonstrated by a new class offered at Yeshivat Kfar Haroeh, a Bnei Akiva school.
For many years, Yeshivat Kfar Haroeh offered a class in Agriculture that focused on planting, the harvesting process and other traditional farming techniques. In today’s age of technology, student interest in the course was dropping: most students think of agriculture as an irrelevant and archaic subject.
As the 5778/2017-18 school year draws to a close, Yeshivot Bnei Akiva is celebrating some remarkable achievements. Our high school for boys in Modiin was recognized for the Education Prize, the top honor granted by the Education Ministry.
This past Shavuot, members of the Five Towns community got a taste of Torat Eretz Yisrael as three of YBA's leading educators, Rabbi Dr. Yona Goodman, National Director of Education, Rabbi Shlomo Kimche, Vice Chairman for Public Affairs, and Rabbi Amir Edrei, Head of Ulpanat Tzfira, spent the holiday in the community and delivered tens of shiurim in synagogues, private homes and high schools.
