Yeshiva University men’s basketball junior Martin Leibovich, a native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, has earned four major weekly awards after an outstanding week of play during which the guard/forward led the Maccabees to a 1-1 record.
For recent Yeshiva University High School for Boys (YUHSB) graduate, Elie Bochner, the awards keep coming. After being designated as semi-finalists in the 2007-2008 Intel Science Talent Search, Elie and fellow classmate, Shai Chester, took first place in several categories at this year’s Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the world’s largest pre-college science competition. The YUHSB duo won ISEF’s grand awards for Best of Category and First Award (both for Team Projects), as well a special Sigma Xi first place award for their research centered on improving medical x-ray scans. The awards came along with cash prizes of five, three, and one thousand dollars, in addition to an Intel notebook computer.
In the combative, spirited world of high school competitions, Yeshiva University is well known for its basketball tournaments and model United Nations debates. A new program under the aegis of Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS) is now encouraging students to show their intellectual prowess in learning Talmud.
