On Tuesday, March 1, SKA participated in the annual Yeshiva League Model Congress hosted by HAFTR. More than 175 students from around the country competed in this tournament, which took place on Zoom for the second year.
SKA students Noa Naumberg and Dina Cohen acted as presiding officers, running a Zoom room of competitors, while SKA students Annabelle Engel, Hannah Greenberg, Batya Kimyagarov, Chaya Sarah Lelonek, Talya Lippman, Rachel Loike, Ariella Miles, Tari Moskowitz, Sarah Owadeyah, Sima Ross, Yael Szlafrok, Aliza Tokayer, and Aliza Zilberberg competed in various committees.
The students prepared bills and speeches, then debated many issues facing the United States. They practiced compromising and even faced a few crises, and at the same time, learned procedures used by the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Out of 15 schools, SKA won the most awards! Congratulations to Hannah Greenberg, Batya Kimyagarov, Chaya Sarah Lelonek, Sarah Owadeyah, Sima Ross, Yael Szlafrok, and Aliza Zilberberg on their seven committee wins.
Thanks go to the SKA Model Congress coach, Mrs. Shani Butler, for her outstanding support.
