Top honors at DRS


The Davis Renov Stahler Yeshiva High School is proud to announce its commencement honorees.

Valedictorian Josh Brafman’s resume includes impressive academic accolades, but most importantly he shines with a spirit of volunteerism, constantly looking to assist others. Josh founded peer tutoring in the most challenging subjects and are always eager to extend yourself to anyone in need. Yeshivat Har Etzion is very fortunate that Josh will have the opportunity to continue his exceptional growth in their Beit Medrash next year.

Salutatorian Ilan Frenkel is determined to achieve on the highest levels. In one year, Ilan managed to play a starring role in the DRS production, run in the Jerusalem marathon, and lead the varsity hockey team. His volunteer work, serving as a counselor in an Israeli foster home, is equally inspiring. As a true Renaissance Man, Ilan does it all with seeming ease and grace, which he will, no doubt, continue next year at Yeshivat Hakotel.

Keter Shem Tov AJ Bennet distinguishes himself on the court, in the Beit Medrash and in the classroom as a mentsch, whose values, work ethic, and middot are always the most important part of his game. AJ was chosen by his classmates as the Keter Shem Tov, a crown that he wears with responsibility and grace. DRS is confident that Yeshivat Shaalvim will benefit from AJ’s leadership and presence next year.
