One of the biological processes of all living things is 
growth. An educational institution is, in its own way, 
also a living thing and, as such, it must also grow. It 
must mature and develop, and strive to reach its full 
potential. This past year, we were privileged to wit- 
ness a great stride forward in YU MSB's growth, a change 
of buildings. Although sadness and a sense of home- 
sickness for our old abode clouded our first days in the 
new building, it wasn't long before we became accli- 
mated and proceeded to make use of the more modern 
facilities and more spacious quarters to enrich our edu- 
cational experience. The old building will always have a 
niche in our hearts, but we must give equal space to the 
new one.

Our first three years were spent in the little 
red schoolhouse at 2270 Church Avenue. In this 
building's halls we laid the foundations for our 
future educational, business, and professional 


A I 1277 East 14 Street, we ended our high 
school years and brought to a close the ado- 
lescent period of our lives. Within its walls we 
matured physically and mentally, and girded 
ourselves to face the challenges of the world.

This year, as promised for so long, YUHSB 
for Boys moved into new surroundings at 
Avenue M and East Fourteentii Street. 
Faced with all the problems of moving into 
new facilities, the administration ably met 
and solved them. Led by Rabbi Dr. Abra- 
ham N. Zuroff and Executive Director 
Samuel Levine, the administration has also 
continued to work diligently with students 
to find ways of incorporating modern-day 
beliefs into Yeshiva life.

Jt.he faculty has devoted to us count-

efforts, our knowledge has grown 
in both the religious and secular 
fields. Under their guidance, we have 
assumed the responsibilities of true

Stressing the ever-present need for communication, the 
linglish faculty of YUHSB strives to teach us the skill- 
ful use of both the written and the spoken word. The 
Hnglish staff attempts to enhance the student's knowl- 
edge in the fields of grammar, composition, and English 
and American literature. Through the four-year course, 
the student also gains valuable practice for such com- 
petitive exams as the College Boards and Achievement

To fully understand the present world, a student must 
be given a good idea of the past. This task falls in the 
domain of our Social Studies Department. Through seven 
terms of geography, world history, American history 
and economics, the capable staff, chaired by Mr. Isidore 
Rosenman, has successfully given the students an educa- 
tion which will guide them through the murky waters of 
our complex world. Newly added courses this year in 
Advanced Placement American History and Political 
Science are intended to enable students to further their 
knowledge in social studies.

Mr. Joseph Weiss 

Mr. Stanley Greenblum 

With the increasing emphasis on technology and 
with the coming of the age of computers, the 
need for an understanding of mathematics has 
become essential. Our competent Mathematics 
Department, chaired by Rabbi Louis Cooper, has 
done much to give YUHSB students a deep 
understanding of what they have learned. Be- 
sides the required three years of math, interested 
students may continue their learning by taking 
such electives as Advanced Algebra and Cal- 
culus. Newly added Advanced Placement Calcu- 
lus, is now offered for the most capable students 
in mathematics. 

Mr. Bernard Horowitz 

Mr. Moe Septimus 

Rabbi Fred Bohensky 


Mr. Albert Tarendash, Physics 

Our Science Department has changed according 
to the times. Housed in new, modern laboratories 
and demonstration rooms, given new syllabi and 
new booics, YUHSB students can now ac- 
quire a much greater depth in the sciences. Al- 
though only General Science and Biology are 
required, the majority of the students take ad- 
vantage of the opportunity to learn both Chem- 
istry and Physics. Many students have gone on 
to major in the sciences because of the en- 
couragement they have received from their edu- 
cation at YUHSB.

Rabbi Abraham Besdin 
Jewish Philosophy 

The foreign language courses in YUHSB have come to 
play an important role in the student's curriculum. 
Besides the three years of Hebrew and one year of either 
Jewish Philosophy or Jewish History, the students are 
required to take two years of French. This year, un- 
fortunately, the opportunity to take a third year of 
French was discontinued. However, thanks to an ac- 
celerated course, the students have gained much knowl- 
edge, not only in the grammatical structure of the 
language, but also in the cultural and literary aspects of

Barry made up for time lost in Ezra 
by dousing us with his energetic per- 
sonality for three years. A "learner" in 
the 102-103 set, he put his energy to 
use on several of the varsity sports 
teams and as the scourge of the park on 
Locust Avenue. Barry will leave 
Y.V.H.S.B.B. and Y.U.H.S.B.G. for four 
years at our mother institution.

Hesh and his jolly sense of humor 
added a sparkle to many a dull day. As 
the first sophomore ever in a Chagiga, 
he used his talents to keep us enter- 
tained at the Chagigas portraying both

rolly-poly chemistry teacher. Hesh will 
follow his model's path by majoring in 
Chem at Brooklyn.

a deep psychological problem: ""What would 
you do if you were on a boat with both oJ your 
parents and the boat was sinking and you could 
only save one parent, who would you save?"

of both of my progenitors and if I should su- 
cumb to the waves, then so be it." Moe: ""No 
that it is not right. Who knows? Nobody knows? 
Well. I will tell you. This is the answer given 
bv a boy in France. He said he would try to 
save both parents and if he failed, then they will 
all die. "...

The responsibility of coordinating the numerous extra- 
curricular activities lies in the hands of the General Or- 
ganization. Headed by the Executive Council, consisting 
of the president, vice-president, and the secretary- 
treasurer who are elected biannually, the legislative body 
is composed of two representatives from each English 
class. By holding meetings twice a month, the General 
Organization was able to cope with all problems concern- 
ing the student body. 

This year's G.O. was faced with the added problems that 
come with an increased student body and new surround- 
ings. Commencing its activities under the leadership of 
fall term President David Wolfson, this year's General 
Organization proved to be one of the best ever. 

The General Organization provided the students with 
various assemblies ranging from a debate between Mel 
Dubin and Bertram Podell, opponents in an election for 
Congress, to a demonstration on microwaves given by 
representatives of the Bell Telephone Laboratories. Sup- 
plementing these were the various debating and high 
school bowl assemblies.

team. Under his tutelage, season passes to the Yugars' 
home games were professionally printed for the first time. 
More season passes than ever before were sold thanks to 
an all-out campaign by the G.O. In addition to these 
accomplishments, Dave obtained many discounts for the 
students and also helped attract the largest attendance 
ever at a Chagiga. 

After serving as Secretary-Treasurer, Irv Birnbaum was 
more than capable to hold the office of President. The 
Spring Term G.O., under his leadership, was responsible 
for many interesting assemblies, highlighted by an enter- 
taining Varsity-Faculty high school bowl match. The 
most important event of the year, the Senior trip to Mon- 
treal, was successfully arranged by a committee 
appointed and headed by President Birnbaum. Innovated 
by him also were the Student Lounge and a system of 
Grade Presidents to aid him in matters concerning their

ors was Mr. Joseph Strum, whose assistance was always 
given when requested.

Arista, our school's chapter of the National Honor Socie- 
ty, consists of a group of highly select students. All have 
attained excellence in both Talmudic and secular studies 
and have done service to the school. 

Under the leadership of Fall Term President David 
Martin and Spring Term President Richard Schiffmiller, 
Arista served many functions. First, it gave public rec- 
ognition to those students who had achieved success in 
their studies. Second, Arista played an important role in

an example for underclassmen to follow. Once again, the 
members undertook the job of tutoring slower students. 
Highlighting the accomplishments of this organization were 
the induction assembly and the successful trip to West 

Taking over this year as advisor to Arista was Rabbi 
Louis Cooper. With his quick wit and fine sense of humor

One of the major student publications of YUHSB is the 
Topics. The paper is a conglomeration of news articles, 
feature stories, editorials, poems, and cartoons, pro- 
viding a medium of expression for our talented writers 
and artists. Its circulation of one thousand is financed by 
G.O. appropriations and the collection of ads. 
This year, under the editorship of Ira Weg and Irwin 
Mansdorf, the Topics made its appearance three times. 
Newly innovated was the use of photo-offset instead of 
the former letterpress. Regularly featured articles in- 
cluded The G.O. Speaks, which gave the President's 
views on controversial topics; Sound-Off, an article by 
Jesse Horowitz which stated student opinions, and Sports 
Slants, a sypnosis of the prospects and events of our 
varsity teams, written by Jerry Kowalski.

Designed to provide up-to-date coverage of the events 
within our school, the Bulletin became the most popular 
YUHSB publication. It provided an opportunity for all 
its readers to keep abreast of all recent administrative 
and student activities. The caustic and controversial 
editorials were augmented by witty, satirical cartoons. 
Each week the Bulletin sported a comprehensive review 
of athletic events and usually contained a feature article. 

Ably edited by Abraham Kalker and Jacob Pretter, the 
Bulletin supplemented its usual issues with special Elec- 
tions, Surveys, and Regents Scholarship Report publica-

This year's minor publications provided YUHSB 
with quality literature. The Yugar, sometimes 
controversial, and cruelly exterminated by in- 
competent censors, kept students aware of 
MJHSL news. The Spectrum, a merger of last 
year's Corollary and Atom, was well-received by 
the math and science-minded students. The 
Focus highlighted items in the news, giving the

Under the direction of Rabbi Joseph Epstein and Mr. 
Robert Bassell, the Hebrew and English libraries moved 
into newer and larger quarters, and expanded their re- 
sources and quality more than ever before. 

This year under the student leadership of Neil Danzig 
and Jesse Horowitz the library acquired many new books 
and films. New magazines and periodicals were purchased 
to keep YUHSB's students up-to-date on the latest 
current events in the world around them. To supplement 


these acquisitions, the library staff innovated new tihng 
methods and a magazine display. They also set up a 
college catalogue with information about all the well- 
known colleges. 

The Hebrew library was greatly aided by the new space 
given it. Containing some of the most revered "seforim" 
in Hebraic subjects, the Hebrew library was put to great 
use by students interested in looking up the thoughts ot 
the great Rabbinic sages.

Mr, Robert Bassell, 


The Yeshiva Organization Commission was again one of 
the most active student organizations in the school. 
Under the leadership of this year's heads, Jesse Horowitz 
and Nachum Chernofsky, the Y.O.C. successfully co- 
ordinated all the religious activities of the Yeshiva. 

The minyan,led by Rabbi S. Faivushevitz, Nachum Chernof- 
sky, and Jesse Horowitz, was attended by over fifty boys 
each day. After davening, the boys were "treated" to a 
tasty breakfast consisting of Jack's pastry. 

An important accomplishment by this year's Y.O.C. was 
the placing of mezuzot on the doorposts of the new 
building. In addition, the Y.O.C. also provided for 
separate dairy and meat tables in the lunchroom. Its 
kashruth commission continued to make sure that every- 
thing that was sold was kosher according to all beliefs. 

Mishmar, after a short leave of absence, was re-instituted 
this year. Officiated over by Rabbi Aryeh Lerman, the 
mishmar was attended by many boys interested in devot- 
ing one night a week to extracurricular learning.

High School Bowl has become the most popular 
non-athletic activity in YUHSB. It is a question 
and answer game played according to the rules of 
G.E. College Bowl, a well-known television pro- 
gram. Competition takes place on both the inter- 
scholastic and intramural levels. 

Captained by Alfred Neugut and Neil Nusbaum, 
the Yubrains finished high in the Inter- Yeshiva 
League. The season was highlighted by the tradi- 
tional annual Faculty vs. Varsity High School 

Intramurals were successfully completed under the 
leadership of Neil Nusbaum and Martin Schiff- 
miller. Fall and Spring Term managers, re- 

Newly instituted this year was the Hebrew High 
School Bowl Team, which used questions on 
Bible, Jewish History, and other Jewish areas of 
interest rather than secular questions. It competed 
very successfully against Brooklyn Central. It is 
hoped that in the coming years other schools will 
also participate.

Debating forms a large part of YUHSB's extra-curricular activities, through the 
functioning of the Varsity, the Junior Varsity, and intramurals. 

The varsity debating team had one of its best seasons this year. Its good showing 
was due in a large part to the ability and leadership of its captains, Dov Frimer and 
David Martin, and to its excellent debaters, all seasoned veterans. The Yuspeaks 
participated in I.Y. competition and in exhibitions against Elizabeth and our two 
sister schools. 

The success of the junior varsity team and the intramural program can be credited 
to Martin Knecht and Menachum Fuchs, Fall and Spring Term debating managers, 

Under Knecht, for the first time, there were no forfeits in intramural competition. 
Also, a file of old debates was introduced. 

Topics this year included many controversial subjects such as Vietnam, sex-education 
in public schools, liberalization of abortion laws, and segregation.

The Inter- Yeshiva High School Student Council is made 
up of representatives from all the metropolitan Yeshivas. 
Its function is to coordinate all the activities that take 
place between its member schools and to keep the member 
schools well-informed of the operations and decisions of 
the council. Acting as President this year was Jesse Cogan, 
who put forth many new ideas. A five school bowling meet 
was one of the most successful functions ever performed by 
the I.Y. Also an I.Y. newspaper, the I.Y. Eye, came out 
for the first time in several years. Edited by David Martin, 
this paper kept the students of different schools in close 
contact with one another and with the events of the I.Y.

Competing in the Interscholastic Math 
League, the math team participated in bi- 
monthly contests with Erasmus and Tilden 
High Schools. At each meet five students 
represented their respective schools and 
were given six questions to answer. The 
team which finished with the most total 
points was declared the winner. Coached 
by Rabbi Louis Cooper and captained by 
Martin Templeman, the Yuclids finished 
in the top half of the league standings.

Although hampered by unjust administrative re- 
strictions, the Chanuica Chagiga, under the 
direction of Harold Baumgarten, Jerry Weinberg, 
and Jackie Herbst, presented an evening of enter- 
tainment to a record crowd of students and faculty. 

After a delicious meal, the Chanuka Chagiga got 
off to a strong start. Following introductory re- 
marks by President David Wolfson and by Rabbi 
Wilfred Wolfson, the show got underway. Fash- 
ioned after the WEVD Radio Program, the

musical performances presented by the Paniks, and 
by the Glee Club. Innovated at this event was the

Beginning their 1967-68 season against the tough- 
est teams in the league, the Yugars set out to go 
all the way. Early losses to M.T.A., Flatbush, and 
J.E.C. hampered these hopes, but Irv Bader's 
quintet managed to bounce back to a spot in the 
M.J.H.S.L. semi-finals. 

Left to 







The season began with a 68—45 upset victory over 
the Falcons of Flatbush. But the atmosphere of 
victors didn't last for long as the Yugars bowed to 
our uptown rivals the following week by a score of 
69 — 52. The next two games saw the Yugars fare 
no better, as they lost close games to both Flat- 
bush and J. B.C. Following victories against HILI, 
Ramaz, and R.J. J., the Yugars found themselves 
the possessors of a 4—3 record prior to the HILI 

During the holiday break, the Yugars were once 
again participants in the annual HILI Invita- 
tional Tournament. Defending champions, they 
lost to a determined HILI squad in the finals. 

Returning to regular season play, the Yugars 
bounced back, winning six out of their next nine 
games. Paced by their all-star backcourt of 
Menachem Taubus, William Weinrib, and Steven 
Simon, the Yugars developed new tactics for 
battling their foes. Among these were the full- 
court zone press and the fast break. The end of 
the season found the Yugars in fourth place with 
a 10 — 6 overall record in league play. 

Next came the all-important playoffs. The Yugars 
were pitted against the Flatbush Falcons. To 
everyone at Y.U.H.S.B. this game had a dual 
significance as it was both a playoff game and a 
chance for revenge against earlier season losses to 
our arch-rivals. With the fine shooting of the 
backcourt and the superb rebounding of Wolfson, 
Levner, Deutsch, and Springer, the Yugars de- 
feated Flatbush by a score of 65—60. However, 
the Yugars' season came to a sorrowful end with 
a disheartening 71—46 loss to HILI in the semi- 

From all Yugar players and fans to Coach Irv 
Bader and Director of Athletics Mr. Irv Forman, 
much heartfelt thanks for their devotion to 
Y.U.H.S.B. sports. 



With six swimmers returning from last year's champion- 
ship season, the Aquamen of 1967-68 were once again top 
contenders in I.Y. swimming competition. Led by star 
captains Larry Shusterman and Jerry Weinburg, the 
Aquamen rolled up impressive victories against the es- 
tablished teams, YUHSM and RJJ, and against new teams 
such as HILL Only Flatbush proved to be too tough for 
the Aquamen, as the Aquamen finished the season in 
a close second place.

The success of the Aquamen this year is due, in large part, 
to the fine coaching of ex-Aquaman Matty Monheit and the 
skill of both upper and lower classmen swimmers. Their 
performance plus the devoted work of manager Harold 
Baumgarten gave the Aquamen the needed impetus to 
drive them on to victory. Practice was held twice weekly- 
Monday nights at Erasmus and Friday afternoons at 
Flatbush Boys Club. Highlighting the season were the 
breaking of records in the breaststroke by Jerry Weinberg 
and in the freestyle by Larry Shusterman and Sol Wilner. 

Relegated for many years to a minor position 
among Y.U.H.S.B. sports, this year's J.V. broice 
with tradition and gained an avid following among 
the students. 

Their phenomenal record of 10 — 1 was achieved 
through the hard work of the future varsity stars 
and the superb coaching of ex-Yugar and 
M.J.H.S.L. all-star Harold Bretstein. 

The culmination of their fine season was the vic- 
tory over M.T.A. for the championship of the 
Metropolitan Jewish High School J.V. League. 
Coach Bretstein's expertise will be felt for many 
years to come with the progress of J.V. stars 
M. Yarmush, H. Weinrib, J. Bertram, A. Tau- 
bus, and I. Schraga, all top Varsity prospects.

league, and thereby had a great season. 

The Tennis Team, under the guidance of Hillel

I.Y. League and finished the season with a 
record worthy of such a team.

Time . . . the unbeatable foe . . . the one threat 
that mankind cannot conceivably outlast. 

Yet, how many are even aware that this threat 

How many realize, at the end of a day, that that 
day is lost to eternity — never to come again? 

How many know enough to shiver in fright when 
the minute hand of a clock moves along its 

How many understand that every progression of 
the second hand brings our fate one instant closer 
to us? 

The greatest tragedy in this world is not that we 
cannot do anything to win the fight against time, 
but that none of us is trying. For who can honestly 
say that he has spent each hour of each day of 
each year of his life continuously doing what he 
believes to be right, continuously searching for his 
own purpose in life and continuously moving 
towards that purpose just as surely as the hands of 
a clock move towards their purpose?

Inward we walk 
Wandering down the misty streets 
Treading through garbage covered sidewalks 
Our footsteps echoing on the cold cement 
That covers the concrete jungle. 
Tediously we pick our way through glass filled gutters 
Through the filth of human vegetables 
Past the burial ground of dreams 
And the crumpled tenements of the mind. 
Slinking past angry youths on subway steps 
Who've grown old before their time 
And left to decay on musky roads. 
A jungle where light can't penetrate bricks 
Piled high to the sun, 

No trees are left to shade tired wanderers. 
No squirrels remain to pick the berries in the park; 
Just the noise of ragged children deep in reality 
Meandering through the streets with nowhere to go. 
Children who will inherit the crumbling empire 
Of cold realizations and shattered dreams, 
Of unguided souls and soft-spoken promises. 

Outward we walk again 
From land that progress has left behind 

And left to its fate in silence.

She stood on the beach alone, 

While the water, like tears of sorrowful remorse, 

Slid along the lines of body — 

The sand drinking the briny nectar at her wings. 

The wind blows out to sea. 
Blowing the way she gazes. 
Gazes and looks, looks and gazes. 
Searching, searching. 

A star guides the heart. 

No other light penetrates. 

The glitter it radiates comes not from fiery passion- 

The coldness of loneliness beams it on. 

A ray of grandeur tainted with the soul's injustice, 

The star emits. 

It travels on and on. 

Searching, searching. 

The beams are locked onto the ship, 
Its men are gone. 

The sail aglow from cold light is flapping 
The captain sleeps. 

The voice speaks 

No words — not even thoughts. 

Only meaning. 

The sleek lines above the beach 
Add to the salt near her. 
More water drips unto the sand. 

The eyes are a portal 
To a gray soul; 
The eyes close. 

Whitecaps crash, they slash and thrash 
The waves and water about them. 
The ship is rocked in stormy water . . . 
The captain sleeps.

We walk forward, so proudly forward, 
To receive a symbol of our past. 
The memories of this day may fade. 
But their proof is writ, and in our hand. 

Pride (a fleeting pleasure) is now replaced by despair: 
What purpose, all our goals, so proudly set this day? 
In a world ruled by evil, how can we strive for good? 
The scrap of paper in my hand is worthless, I know, 
for it still leaves me helpless to fight for my beliefs. 

Despair, like pride, gives way to a new emotion: 
The world, despite its faults, has survived, has even 

Is this not reason enough for hope?

The Silence of Spring 

Jerry Charles Weinberg 

Like the wind blowing gently dispersing the cloud formation. 
Trees softly swaying in the illumination of the moon, 
The seashore echoes in the realms of my imagination 

Again sinister shadows lurk menacingly, 

Like incinerators spewing forth soot, obliterating the sun. 

It's nothing stirring on the street through the night's bleakness. 

Look! Someone's caused destruction. 

Death hovers softly in the silence of Spring.

able to, he ran with the surety of foot of one who had run

Then he saw it. About a hundred yards from him, as he 
emerged from the grove, stood the house. He raced to it 
and flung open the door. His eyes had not adjusted from the 
bright sun to the darkness the house held, but it didn't 
matter. He tore through the main room into the kitchen. 
Without a conscious thought, he reached up into the cup-

It was a gray day, and I walked quickly. The weatherman 
had promised a storm, and a drizzle of tiny raindrops was 
already smashing onto my glasses. I was walking to I 
knew not where, coming from I knew not where, being 
where I knew not where, I was just walking, walking with- 
out shelter, walking without even care for shelter. But the 
day was soft and a dull, foggy gray, the gray that softens 
the harsh right angle lines of a perpendicular world, and I 
didn't care that I was lost. 

The drizzle soon became a shower and the shower was 
drowned in a downpour, and suddenly I cared for shelter 
and I ran through the brown rippling, quickly forming, 
puddles, into a doorway. There was a man and a woman 
in there who seemed familiar. I smiled, and they smiled 
back, and I asked them where I was. 

"You're here," they said, "and we've told you all we can. 
Now keep walking, for we cannot shelter you here any- 
more. Now go." They smiled and I smiled, and they gently 
pushed me out into the rain, setting my shoulders towards 
the direction to which I had been going before. "Now go," 
they said again smiling, smiling a little sadly, and I did not 
ask them for directions again. 

I kept watching, stepping in puddles, crashing on the metal 
cellar doors set into the street. I am still walking, but I am 
not so lost in a rainstorm anymore.
