The sixth graders of the Bais Yaakov Academy of Queens have continued exploring a unit on matter. To review the parts of the atom in a creative and fun way, the girls each created an artistic atom using supplies such as pipe cleaners, sequins, buttons, gems, and rubber bands. The students created a key to identify the nucleus, protons, neutrons, and electrons. Each one is unique and informative! The masterpieces have been displayed in the classroom and halls for all to admire.

Central was very proud to send its own delegation to the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington DC this past week. Under the leadership of Mrs. Audi Hecht, two seniors and four juniors – Marsha Joseph, Olivia Peller, Rachel Rumstein, Meira Saffra, Eytana Schick, and Rina Shamilov – joined 4,000 other students in making up nearly a quarter of the total conference attendees. At AIPAC, our students learned extensively about the US-Israel relationship and how vital it is to both the United States and Israel’s strategic interests and about the unique kinship the nations share. The students had an opportunity to hear from a wide array of presenters, including United States political leaders, such as Vice President Mike Pence, US Representative Nancy Pelosi, Senator Mitch McConnell, Senator Chuck Schumer, former Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, and many others who affirmed their staunch commitment to the US-Israel alliance.
