MTA Talmidim Participate in YU Presidential Forum Series

On Wednesday, November 20, MTA talmidim were privileged to meet His Excellency Sheikh Dr. Mohammad Al-Issa, secretary general of the Muslim World League, who visited Yeshiva University to participate in “Jews and Muslims: A Look Toward the Future,” the inaugural conversation in the Presidential Forum series, in which Yeshiva University President Rabbi Dr. Ari Berman engages with the global leaders and voices who are shaping today’s world. The event was conducted in association with the Rabbi Arthur Schneier Program for International Affairs of Yeshiva University, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and the American Sephardi Federation. Rabbi Berman and Dr. Al-Issa discussed the growing relationships between Muslim and Jewish communities across the globe as well as Dr. Al-Issa’s influences, his views on the Middle East, and his family life. MTA’s unique location on the YU campus enables the yeshiva’s talmidim to participate in important events like this one, where they can engage in meaningful dialogue with world leaders.
