Message from JBHS Head of School

Welcome to the Joel Braverman High School!

I invite you to come and visit our Yeshivah to get a sense of the incredible energy and enthusiasm which pulses throughout our school.  Immediately upon entry, the bright spaces of our new extension convey an air of inspiration.  However, inspiration is found in more than just our physical space. 

Over the last several years, Flatbush has instilled more pride in its students than ever before. This did not happen by accident; it took the concerted effort of our entire dedicated staff to rise to meet the goal of our mission: to inspire, challenge and support our students as they grow into adults with character, compassion and scholarship, committed to Torah u’Mitzvot, Am Yisrael and Medinat Yisrael.  

Our academics are known for their rigor and high standards in both Torah and secular studies, including all of our Judaic courses conducted in Hebrew, in our Torah b’Ivrit model.  Beyond the walls of the classroom, Flatbush offers unparalleled extracurricular opportunities and student support: Seminars, Pathfinders, clubs, teams, programs, guidance, college guidance, chesed, Yachad, Israel Advocacy and much more. 

Over decades, we have produced more than 10,000 graduates who are empowered to succeed, lead and serve in their communities, in institutions of higher learning, and in the world at large.

As I assume the role of Head of School, I do so with excitement and humility, as I follow in the footsteps of great leaders such as my mentors Rabbi Dr. David Eliach and Rabbi Dr. Raymond Harari.  Under their stewardship, the Yeshivah of Flatbush established and maintained itself as a flagship institution of Jewish education yet never rested on our laurels.  These leaders constantly preached and modeled constant improvement, an insatiable desire to be better.  This is the path we will follow as we prepare students for life in the near future and beyond.
