Yeshiva University Celebrates Israel at Commencement

Yeshiva University will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Israel at YU’s 87th commencement on Wednesday, May 16, at 10 a.m. at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Ambassador Danny Danon, Israel’s permanent representative to the United Nations, will deliver the keynote address and receive an honorary doctorate. Presiding over his first commencement exercises as YU president, Dr. Ari Berman will also confer an honorary doctorate and pay special tribute to his predecessor, President Emeritus Richard M. Joel.

“One of Yeshiva University’s core principles is Torat Tzion, which represents the unwavering commitment to the state of Israel and the conviction that we all have one common goal, to redeem the world and transform it for the better,” said Dr. Berman. “Our graduates, the next generation of leaders, are encouraged to look outward to promote the betterment of all humanity. This commencement season, as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence, Yeshiva University is proud to honor those who exemplify our values and serve as a shining light to all of us.”

In total, more than 1,700 students from Yeshiva College, Stern College and Sy Syms School of Business, as well as graduate students in the fields of law, medicine, social work, education, Jewish studies and psychology, will be awarded degrees from Yeshiva University during its commencement season.
