Bergen Academies Student Excels in Torah and Science

The Teaneck Suburbanite reports about Joshua Meier, a 16-year old Teaneck resident who became a finalist in the Google Science Fair.  Joshua graduated from Yavneh and now attends Bergen County Academies for High School, a public "magnet school".

According to the article he studies Jewish subjects for 2 hours every day with a tutor.  Not sure how the cost of the tutor compares with Yeshiva but it seems to be paying off.  He won 6th place at the International Chiddon Tanach and 1st place at the International Jerusalem Contest.  He also created an app with the Mishneh Torah on it, or as the Suburbanite calls it, the "Mission of the Torah."
