2022 Graduate School Commencements

Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration

May 9, 2022 | Weissberg Commons
  Quotes Rabbi Dr. Ari Berman, President of Yeshiva University

“There is nothing more important that we do than educating the next generation of Jewish educators. In you lies the continuity of our traditions, [and] each of you, by graduating from Azrieli and assuming your role, are an integral part of the unique mission and story of the Jewish people....It’s not just what you know but how you teach and how you represent this unique love, this unique dialogue, this unique role of embodying Torah—you as a teacher represent the ever-unfolding story of the Jewish people....Yeshiva University educates the leaders of tomorrow, and you, my dear students, are those leaders, are those educators.”

Dr. Erica Brown, director of the Sacks-Herenstein Center for Values and Leadership

“The constant conversation between generations is up to you, dear graduates. You will be the conductors of this conversation. You will be those who prepare and create readiness for transformation. The only way we can truly do that is through love. I wish you and bless you with that love, that with your words you lift people because they know that you love and care for them and that you believe in them the way that we believe in you.”

Dr. Rona Novick, dean of the Azrieli Graduate School

“Teachers who are inspiring produce inspired learners. Teachers who are committed produce the next generation of committed Jews. Teachers with deep abiding faith produce students who can connect to God. But perhaps the most important ingredient and product of Jewish education, of the work that you will do, is hope. Every day of your educational career be hopeful. See beyond who your students are—see the hope for who they can be…. See beyond the tangible, the visible, to the unseen but ever-present sacred partnership we engage in in Jewish education every day, a partnership with God and with our traditions....You are our hope for the future.”

Quotes New York City Council Member Carmen De La Rosa

“I thank you for welcoming me in this special moment in your lives, thank you for allowing me to share my words, I congratulate all of you for your accomplishments, and I wish you continued success. You always have a home in our beloved community. In fellowship and solidarity, it is my honor to be here with you, and I look forward to continuing to strengthen our bond in the pursuit of justice, dignity and compassion for all.”

Dr. Ronnie Glassman, interim dean of Wurzweiler

“When we help clients tell their truths and bear witness right here at home, we are supporting our democratic values. Use your research and critical thinking skills to separate truth from propaganda, true leadership from demagoguery. At Wurzweiler, remember that we all took part in a joint process to create a learning community. The process took time and mirrors the time and process it takes to sustain our precious democracy.”
