Led by the captains, senior Rachelle Winokur and junior Sarah Hamerman, Central dominated in the 2021 Yeshiva League Model Congress on Zoom. Girls were tasked with creating solutions for problems that their specific committees addressed, such as teachers’ salaries, in the Labor Committee.

With two sessions beginning at 10:00 am and ending at 3:00 pm, competitors debated, questioned, and defended bills with eloquence and passion. Additionally, competitors had to demonstrate their skills by solving crises, ranging from the secession of Florida to Russia demanding “Kanye for President.”

Despite potential Zoom challenges, our students defended their status as the team to beat! With 23 competitors and four presiding officers, Central’s presence was felt, as each girl cheered loudly for her teammates, who collected a total of 16 awards!

Once again, Central won the most awards of any school; in two committees, Central girls were the winners of both awards! Congratulations to Bat-Tzion Atik, Shira Ebbin, Shana Furman, Shira Kornblau, Sarah Rosenfeld, and Rivka Sullivan for winning second place in their committees! Another huge congratulations goes to Aviv Amar, Maytal Chelst, Leah Frankel, Sarit Katz, Gabi Lefkowitz, Relly Robinson, Eliana Samuels, and Shira Schwartz for winning first place in their committees! A special mazal tov goes to Leora Muskat for winning second place overall, and to Sarah Hamerman for winning first place overall!

We are so incredibly proud of our team for proving that, despite any challenges, we can still flourish! Go Central!
