Yeshiva University Office of the President

Rabbi Reuven Fink, the Rabbi of the Young Israel of New Rochelle, who has been in self-quarantine for being in contact with his congregant who has tested positive has announced to his congregation that he also tested positive with the coronavirus. Rabbi Fink teaches two undergraduate classes at our Washington Heights campus. We have reached out to his students and recommended as a precautionary measure to self-quarantine until further notice.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Rabbi Fink for a full and speedy recovery.

I will continue to share information as it becomes available.

Dr. Ari Berman
President, Yeshiva University
