YU Hosts Israeli Students from Ein Prat
On Monday, June 3, 2019, Yeshiva University hosted a group of 40 students from Israel’s Ein Prat, The Academy for Leadership, a pre-military, leadership-focused center that attracts high school graduates from across religious, political and social spectrums.
The trip was organized by Rabbi Dr. Stu Halpern, senior adviser to the provost, as a way to increase the students’ knowledge and awareness of America’s Jewish community and give them a glimpse into the history and future of Yeshiva University.
They began their visit at the Office of the President, where they learned more about the University’s strong support of Israel as pictures of the country’s many prime ministers who have visited the campus over the years looked down on them from the walls. They were also given a brief overview of YU’s unique educational model and learned about the University’s distinctive academic offerings.
