Arts Events

Bamah: United Through Theater Education, is a virtual drama festival composed of Jewish day schools throughout the US and abroad. Students from Yeshivah of Flatbush, SAR High School, Golda Och Academy, Milken Community School, and San Diego Jewish Academy participated in this first inter-community production.
To prepare for the production, all participating students came together on a bi-monthly basis for Zoom workshops led by theater and film industry professionals. Students worked with other high school students from different Jewish denominations, cultures, and backgrounds, and integrated the skills and lessons they learned in their workshops into their rehearsal processes. The workshops created a national theatrical community of like-minded Jewish day school students who were united by their love of theater.
Each school rehearsed and produced its own Brothers Grimm Story, which was included in the final virtual production. After the debut of the performance, students participated in a Q and A panel, in which they discussed their experiences. Bamah is under the direction of SAR High School, Dorit Katzenelenbogen (YOF ES ‘98, YOF HS ‘02) and Rabbi Kenneth Birnbaum (YOF ES ‘96, YOF HS ‘00).

The Jason Botnick A”H Memorial Hebrew Play, performed during Chanukah, is one of the artistic highlights of the school year. Open to students of all grades, the musical is conducted exclusively in Hebrew. Students design the backdrop and work on their own costumes and makeup. Past productions include “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “School of Rock,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” Les Miserables,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Aladdin,” “The Lion King” and “Peter Pan,” among many others.

Witness Theater
One of the most impactful and unique experiences a student can have at the Yeshivah of Flatbush is to participate in our Witness Theater program. Witness Theater brings together YOF seniors and Holocaust survivors through a partnership with Selfhelp Community Services. The year-long project connects the hearts and minds of the participants through an intergenerational collaborative journey. It culminates in a production of the survivors’ stories performed by the group on Yom Hashoah for the entire Flatbush community.


Evening of the Arts

 Our annual Evening of the Arts is the much anticipated culmination of all the YOF arts courses and programs. Showcasing art and performances from students and faculty alike, this evening exhibits impressive works in many artistic domains - visual art, graphic design, architecture, photography, choral performance, instrumental performance, poetry and theater. Evening of the Arts is an opportunity to feature the extraordinary talents of our students and their arts teacher-mentors. The event is an immersive experience with the feel of an art gallery, museum, concert and theater production all in one evening. Hundreds have attended over the years and, even during the pandemic, the virtual show was equally superbly attended.


Lunch N Listen
Each month students showcase their talents in a lunchtime, cafe style performance. Organized by Ms. Lilly Mauskop, Lunch N Listen provides opportunities for singers, instrumentalists and actors to perform regularly for their peers
