Student Accepted to Prestigious Summer Program

11th grader, Alyssa Wruble was recently accepted into the prestigious Tikvah Summer Institute at Yale University.  The Tikvah program selects a small number of the country's most talented 11th and 12th graders and brings them together for two weeks to delve deeply into some of the biggest questions that face us as American Jews.  This year's Institute is entitled "Politics, Economics, and the Jewish Person" and features world class faculty such as Rabbi Dr. Meir Soloveitchik, Dr. Kimberly Kagan (founder and president of the Institute for the Study of War), Dr. James Otteson (director of the Center for the Study of Capitalism at Wake Forest University), and takes place on the Yale University Campus in New Haven, Connecticut.

We have no doubt Alyssa will find the experience enriching and enlightening and we have no doubt that the Tikvah group will be similarly enlightened and enriched by the sharp wit and penetrating insight we've all come to know and expect from Alyssa.
