    and Future Builders Young Leadership

    The Yeshiva University Women's Organization (YUWO) has been an integral part of the University since its inception in 1924. Its founders, Ida Lamport Hurewitz and her fellow leaders, translated their concern for student welfare into action. They tirelessly raised funds to build the first student dormitories and their mission of providing food, clothing and funds for the student’s personal welfare has continued until this day.

    The women of YUWO have succeeded in their numerous endeavors throughout the years due to the generosity of its dedicated donors. The President’s Society for Torah Chesed Endowment Fund provides for monthly sipends for YU students in financial need not covered by scholarships, which include food, clothing, textbooks, healthcare and more. There are also educational programs on campus, Shabbatonim throughout the year for Stern College and YU undergraduates, scholarships and support for chesed programs. This year has seen the completion of the Albert Einstein Synagogue and Social Hall, a stunning achievement and testimony to the devotion of YUWO to their origins of enhancing the student’s quality of life.  In addition, YUWO Torah Chesed Counseling Center Fund established for undergraduate medical and counseling needs.
