Female students cheering and waiving the flag of Israel

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.

IF NOT

FOR YU

  • 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.

IF NOT

FOR YOU
