High School Hosts Model UN Conference

Heschel High School hosted its sixth annual Model United Nations conference with nearly one hundred students from Jewish and public schools from the tri-state area. The conference provided a forum for debate and international diplomacy centered around issues in the Middle East. The day began with a presentation from Dr. Keren Yarhi-Milo, a Heschel parent and a professor of political science at Princeton. Dr. Yarhi-Milo presented a framework for understanding the choices leaders make and the complications that can result. Over the course of the day, student leaders served as committee chairs, guiding their respective delegates toward compromise and geopolitical solutions to complex problems. HeschMUN concluded with an awards ceremony and with gratitude for all the hard work and support from students and staff alike.
