  • Henry KresselDear Fellow YU Alumni,

    It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve as the chairman of the Board of Trustees of Yeshiva University. Now in the 125th anniversary of the University, we can feel a deep sense of pride in YU's progress towards building a great university with a unique mission and its dedication to a centuries-old commitment to the advancement of human knowledge and ethics.

    This progress is exemplified in our alumni community. As an alumnus of Yeshiva University, I have watched with keen interest and pleasure the achievements of my fellow graduates. Their successes testify to the quality of a YU education, elevate the stature of the undergraduate and graduate schools and ensure the University's continuing vibrancy and growth. All of this, in turn, enhances the value and prestige of a YU degree and confirms that our more than 56,000 alumni are among the best in their fields. This bond between YU and its constituents is a lifelong connection that must be mutually sustained by each so that both can thrive.

    With a vibrant and ever-expanding campus -- including the new Jacob and Dreizel Glueck Center -- YU continues to enhance its presence. Your invitation to visit is always open. You are also invited to join me in giving back to your alma mater by volunteering, making a financial contribution or participating in one of the many events offered throughout the year. I hope that you will remain a part of the YU community for years to come!
