  • Two TABC Students Published

    Posted May 23, 2016

    Two TABC students have recently had essays published in a college publication. The Hofstra University: Peter S. Kalikow Center for the Study of the American Presidency annually publishes a book of essays by students in AP high school classes for American History or Government. This year's topics revolved around the upcoming presidential election. Both Hillel Koslowe '17 of the AP American History class and Aaron Fishkind '16 of the Advanced Placement United States Government and Politics class had their essays published. The question they wrote about was: What does the popularity of presidential candidates who do not have previous political experience, or have recently entered politics, illustrate about the American public's interests and concerns today?

  • More on Yom Ha'Atzmaut in the Classroom

    Posted May 23, 2016

    In Rabbi Jachter's shiurim the focus on Yom HaAtzmaut was on Shir HaShirim, which teaches how Hashem relates to Am Yisrael. They noted that there are times of hester panim, where Hashem conceals His face, but times where Hashem reaches out to us - in the words of Shir HaShirim: "Kol dodi dofeik", the voice of my beloved knocks. They read Rav Soloveitchik's essay of that name, which explains how the military and political miracles involved in the rise of the State of Israel were on expression of 'kol dodi dofeik'. Additionally they discussed the military miracles of the war of Independence, as well as the miracle of the United Nations voting on November 29, 1947 to establish a Jewish State in part of Eretz Yisrael.

  • History Bowl Team Concludes Successful Season

    Posted May 23, 2016

    Over the course of a seven month season the TABC History Bowl and Bee Team competed against 33 different schools and eight teams from four states. The competition included public and private schools and a growing number of yeshiva high schools. Over the course of the season the team had four different full day competitions. With 30 teams competing at the first Bowl competition in November hosted by TABC, both our varsity and JV bowl teams made it into the playoffs and finished as finalists or semi-finalists. In the second tournament held in February in Queens, the JV team finished in second place. In the third tournament on Long Island, the varsity bowl team finished second while the JV team made it into the quarterfinals. By the end of the first three competitions, both of the school's teams had qualified for the National Tournament to be held in Washington D.C. Unfortunately, because the national tournament was played on Shabbos during Pesach our students were not able to attend. This past Sunday, the National History Bowl held a special tournament, the Lorenz Cup, for schools that could not attend in DC. In the special tournament, held at TABC, the Varsity team of Aaron Fishkind '16, Orrin Kigner '16 and Jeremy Rosenblatt '16 earned a third place finish.

  • Honors Physics Students Study Electric Fields

    Posted May 23, 2016

    After hurricanes or early snowstorms we have experienced singularly disruptive and often protracted power outages due to downed power lines. This is often followed by a movement to bury the power lines. There is one serious drawback. Power lines produce electric fields. This interacts with the immediate environment bleeding off power. This power bleed-off is significantly greater for buried lines as compared with those suspended in the air. Here our students map out the electric field made by a 15000 volt Tesla coil. A digital multimeter is coupled to a solar panel to measure the light induced in a fluorescent bulb by the Tesla coil. Notice the lightning.
