Canadian Friends of Yeshiva University

School Menu

The mission of the Canadian Friends of Yeshiva University (CFYU) is to support Yeshiva University’s Canadian students and alumni; to raise the University’s profile in Canada; to bring our spiritual, intellectual and creative resources to Canadian Jewish communities—and to raise the funds needed to make all of this possible.

Welcome from Yeshiva University President Richard M. Joel

Canada is blessed with a strong, influential and flourishing Jewish community. We at Yeshiva University are proud that so many Canadian students and professionals choose to partner with us for their education.

Our relationship with Canada is an essential part of who we are—and it works in a continuous circle. We educate Canadian students at our undergraduate and graduate schools and affiliates—in medicine, law, social work, psychology, education and rabbinic studies—and watch them return to Canadian communities with new skills to invest in the most important place in the world: their homes.

Our values must blossom in multiple communities throughout North America, in Israel and around the world. YU alumni play leadership roles shaped by their global perspective and give their communities a sense of reach, exploration and tradition that are at the heart of our purpose.

We need your ideas, your energy, your participation and your support.

—Richard M. Joel
President, Yeshiva University
