This is a pivotal moment in our history. A time when our values and traditions must not only link us to the past but provide a springboard to push us forward.

With your generosity, we can meet the evolving needs of our students and faculty, create more innovative and entrepreneurial initiatives, develop state-of-the-art facilities – and together, help propel Yeshiva University into our next great era. That’s why we’re calling on you to Rise Up.



    Communities would be without leaders.
    YU grads are leading industries and communities in every corner of the globe.
    the innocent would languish behind bars.
    The Innocence Project, founded at Cardozo School of Law, has brought freedom to hundreds of wrongfully convicted members of society.
    There would be no flagship Jewish university.
    YU is in a class of its own when it comes to connecting prestigious, world-class education with timeless Torah values.

Through your generosity we can:

Add Values to Leadership

With over 75% of all American major Orthodox congregations led by RIETS musmachim and YU graduates serving in leadership roles throughout the public and private sectors, we must continue to develop and support the next wave of Jewish leaders.

Empower Entrepreneurs

YU innovators and globally-minded thinkers are connecting communities from Jackson Heights to Jerusalem. Help us provide the next era of entrepreneurs with the tools, resources and opportunities to thrive in our interconnected world.

Bring Science and Tech to Life

We believe in applying our knowledge to impact the world around us. That’s why we are staying ahead of the ever-evolving science and tech landscape by preparing our students for the industries and possibilities of today and tomorrow.

Create Opportunity for All

“Jewish Geography” may connect us in conversation, but real, time-honored networks can spark meaningful careers. With your support, we can continue to open doors, smash glass ceilings and create opportunities for the next wave of YU graduates.
