Yeshiva University is the world’s premier Jewish institution for higher education. Rooted in Jewish thought and tradition, it sits at the educational, spiritual and intellectual epicenter of a robust global movement that is dedicated to advancing the moral and material betterment of the Jewish community and broader society, in the service of God.
In September 2017, Ari Berman was inaugurated as the fifth president of Yeshiva University. He succeeded Richard M. Joel, who was inaugurate in 2003, and Norman Lamm, who had held the office since 1976. President Berman's two other predecessors were Bernard Revel, president from 1915 to 1940, and Samuel Belkin, who served from 1943 to 1975.

Study in Israel
For students who choose to begin their YU education in Israel, the S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program is the formal arrangement between Yeshiva University and yeshivot and seminaries in Israel. This program provides structure, support and guidance for the more than 600 young men and women who study in Israel each year. We encourage you to explore this site and learn about all the exciting ways Yeshiva University is bringing wisdom to life.
A Faculty That Engages and Inspires
Some of the world's leading minds make their home in Yeshiva University's classrooms. Beyond a commitment to research and writing, YU faculty members and Roshei Yeshiva [professors of Talmud] engage and inspire their students, drawing them into a continuing pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. They value close interactions with their students and the opportunity to engage with students outside the classroom setting, whether it's meeting informally to continue a discussion started in the classroom or collaborating in the laboratory on new research.
Distinguished Alumni Near and Far
YU alumni have gone on to become distinguished rabbinic leaders, world political leaders, business giants and philanthropists. Alumni have achieved immense success and made significant contributions to society and the Jewish community both nationally and worldwide. They serve, lead and inspire by example: a testament to the University's greatest resources—our students and faculty.
