Open Yeshivah of Flatbush Reunions

The Yeshivah of Flatbush High School Class of 1997 reunion was held on December 22nd, 2007. Although the vast majority of students were invited to bring guests to the reunion, some students were singled out and received emails from the Flatbush Administration barring them from bringing a guest. This is completely inconsistent with the value of \'Hachnassat Orchim\' which we, as Flatbush alumni, hold dear. In addition, a book of alumni biographies was circulated at the reunion. Some alumni biographies were censored. I, a Yeshivah of Flatbush student/alumnus/affiliate, urge the Yeshivah of Flatbush to begin an \'Open Reunion\' Policy: (i) everyone returning to their reunion should be entitled to bring a guest. No one should ever again feel the need to stay home because of alumni profiling. (ii) barring the use of inappropriate language, alumni biographies should faithfully represent the submission of the alumnus, and not be censored or tampered with in any way.
