The Yeshiva Caper:" 



The sun was glaring off the waters of the 
Hudson as the helicopter swooped low across 
the George Washington Bridge. He looked out 
over the unending expanse of burned out tene- 
ments, bodegas, and car repair garages, until he 
spotted a brown monolith of a building jutting 
out of the grey asphalt. He motioned to the pilot. 

"Why don't you set it down by that gigantic 
pile of books over there?" he said, pointing. 

The pilot (YC '57) gave him a queer look. 

"You mean the library, don't you?" 

"Oh, is that what it is?" He shrugged. "Looks 
like a pile of books to me". 

The pilot landed on the roof and the passen- 
ger got out. He was immediately surrounded by a 
gang of about twenty men, dressed only in 
shorts, their bodies glistening with sun tan oil. A 
radio blared somewhere. 

"Where do you come off landing a copter 
while we're sunbathing?" one of the group 
asked. 

The man ignored him. He turned to the others. 

"Is this Yeshiva University?" 

The group laughed. 

"Museum tours are on Tuesdays only, buster", 
the first one said, spitting. 

The man turned. 

"Look kid, I don't like your attitude, so beat it!" 

"Make me!" 

The man swung at the boy's head. The youth 
ducked, pivoted, and grabbed the man's out- 
stretched arm. He pivoted again, pulling, and the 
man flew through the air, landing hard. 

He got up slowly and brushed himself off. 

"Pretty good stuff. Where d'ya learn it?" 

The boy grinned. "I'm a member of the Karate 
Club, and the Wrestling Team". 

The man whistled, long and low. "Boy, I've got 
a lot to learn about Yeshiva U.". 




He sat in the president's office. Lamm sat at 
the head of the conference table, talking. He had 
been talking for 45 minutes. 

"... Now synthesis is a philosophical term 
which . . . 

He interrupted. 

"Excuse me Dr. Lamm". 

"Rabbi Lamm". 

"Sorry, Rabbi Lamm, I . . . 

'President Lamm ". 

"Whatever. Sir, I'm a detective. I'm not very 
interested in synthesis. Right now I'm more inter- 
ested in finding out what is going on. If you can 
help me in any way". 

"Help you!" Rabbi Lamm shouted. "How can 
we help you if you don't give us any information. 
You don't even know why you are here! How can 
we help you?!" 

"I found a note in my office. It had two letters 
on it, Y and U. I spent three weeks puzzling it 
out. I called Yale. I called Yugoslavia. Nothing. 
Then one night I get a phone call. All the voice 
says is: 'When it's cold you shiver'. What does it 
mean?" 





Lamm reached for his phone and said: 

"Send in Tauber". 

A gigantic man strode into the office. The 
detective started to sweat. He had been in sim- 
ilar situations, but never exactly lil<e this. The 
man's face — it was covered by a mesh metal 
mask. What it covered? — the detective didn't 
want to think about. 

"Hey Lah!", Tauber said, saluting. 

Lamm quickly appraised him of the situation. 
When he got to the phrase: "When it's cold you 
shiver", Tauber paled. 

"Sounds like a fencer", he exclaimed. 

"You mean, stolen goods?" the detective 
asked. 

Tauber glared. "No, I mean fencing, like epee, 
foil, saber". 

"Oh. So that means that the caller was on the 
Fencing Team". 

"But what does it mean?" Lamm and Tauber 
both said at the same instant. They looked at 
each other. 

"I don't know", the detective said, "but I'll find 
out". 

The plan was simple. He would enter the 
school as an exchange student from Afranistan. 
This would enable him to blend into the student 
body, and to infiltrate deeply into the maze of 
Yeshiva College. But first he had to register. 





He entered the registrar's office. He saw 
people rushing back and forth, papers flying, 
phones ringing. He was amazed at the way the 
people were efficiently wasting time. After watch- 
ing for a few minutes, he tripped a hunched-over 
man carrying a tremendous stack of books. 

"Look what you've done now" the man said, 
dusting himself off. 

"Sorry, but I had to get your attention". 

"But now we'll be delayed another three years. 
These catalogs must be dirt-free. They must . . . 

"Look, I just want to register". 

The man got up slowly. He looked suspiciously 
at the detective. 

"Register? But the semester has already start- 
ed". 

"I have special permission from the Dean. I'm 
an exchange student from Afranistan". Then he 
added wrily: "My father is the crown prince". 

The man's eyes widened. He licked his lips, 
and started breathing quickly. 

"Did you say Afranistan? Famous people, mon- 
ey, movie stars, money, swimming pools, money 

"That's right", the detective said, pausing, 
"and I'm prepared to pay in full . . . cash!" 

Desks, files, typewriters, secretaries were all 
dimly noted articles as the detective was plunged 
headlong Into a cramped office. The man was 
pulling him into a chair. On the office desk was a 
sign that read: "THE BUCK PASSES HERE". 

"My name is Edelstein. What's yours?" 

"Shabtai Tsvi Leinovich". 

"I didn't know they had jews in Afranistan". 

"Well, after the revolution the only books avail- 
able were old copies of Scholem's "Major 
Trends in Jewish Mysticism", which sort of got 
us interested. 

"I see" Edelstein said, a perplexed look across 
his face, "and have you already registered for 
Jewish Studies?" 

"No". 

"Well, you have to decide if you're going into 
RIETS, JSS, or" — Edelstein sniffed — "EMC". 



The detective left the office and walked down 
the hallway. Out of the cornerof his eye he spied 
a uniformed guard approaching him. 

"Excuse me sir, but what's the password?" 

The detective smiled. Lamm had prepared him 
for this situation. 

"Torah U'mada", he said with confidence. 

The guard relaxed. 

"I'm sorry sir if I caused you any inconven- 
ience, you can go. We can't be too careful you 
know". He gave a confidential nod to the detec- 
tive. "This neighborhood is full of them". 

"Them?" 

"Undesirables — Communists, Liberals, Neo- 
Platonists, Existentialists. The whole bunch 
should be sent back where they came from.". 

"Where's that?" 

"New Jersey. They breed 'em there and then 
send 'em over the G.W. into the city. They breed 
like rats". 

The detective mumbled something and quickly 
walked away. 

He came to a door marked "JEWISH STUD- 
IES" and opened it. Inside, three men stood in a 
semi-circle, facing him. One had coils of rope 
wrapped around him, and a sign hung from his 
neck which read "My Hands Are Tied". By his 
feet rested a sign which read "Join EMC now 
and win a free trip to Europe!". The second man 
was constantly blinking and scribbling furiously 
into a note pad. A sign next to him read: 
Take a load off your feets 
And Join up for RIETS 

The third man stood in perfect silence. A halo 
of light danced above his head, and ministering 
angels sang hoseannahs. By his feet an eph- 
emeral light shone, in the middle of which letters 
burned in white fire on top of black fire. They 
spelled out a message: 
Menei Menei Tekeil Ufarsin 
Can be explained by Rabbi Besdin. 
So join up now, don't be a fool. 
Stick with a winner, James Striar School. 

The detective thought it sounded like a school 
cheer. He stood looking at the three men, unable 
to decide. So he didn't. 






He walked into the office of the Dean of Ye- 
shiva College. The secretary was trying to type 
something, but she kept getting White-Out on 
the keys and couldn't tell which keys to press. 
The detective coughed and the secretary looked 
up. 

"I'm a new student. I'd like to see the Dean". 

The secretary smiled. 

"Which one?" 

"How many are there?" he asked, afraid to 
hear the answer. 

In reply, the secretary stood up and walked 
over to a wall on which there was a poster that 
said: 

UNIVERSITY REORGANIZATION REORGANI- 
ZATION 

"There are currently 53 deans" the secretary 
began, smiling, "which is interesting when you 
realize that the university employs only 48 secre- 
taries". She continued, "These deans are in- 
volved in all aspects of the university. There is a 
Dean of Science, Dean of Humanities, Dean of 
Food, Dean of Parking, Dean of . . . 

The detective interrupted, "But I need a 
request approved to waive my Jewish Studies 
requirement". 

"What!" the secretary screamed. The detective 
felt the building shake. "That's never been re- 
quested before. You'll have to see . . . The Dean 
of Deans!" She shuddered, then fainted. The 
detective decided he didn't want to wait around 
to meet this Dean of Deans. He could complete 
his registration later. He decided to go for a tour 




of the campus. He took the back entrance into 
the library. Maybe if he could read up on Yeshiva 
University he could get a clue as to why he was 
there. He went to the circulation desk. 

An elderly man stood behind the counter, soft- 
ly cursing beneath his breath. The detective 
asked if he could see a book on Yeshiva Univer- 
sity. The man shook his head. The detective 
asked if the book was currently circulating. The 
man shook his head. The detective asked if there 
was any reason why he could not see the book. 
The man shook his head, then spoke: 

"If you'd let me get a word in edgewise, I'd tell 
you that we do have a book on Y.U." the man 
shook his head. 

"But you shook your head 'No' " the detective 
protested. 

The man shook his head. "I did not". 

The detective was getting a headache. He was 
learning an important lesson: Never ask ques- 
tions. But he was a detective, he had to ask 
questions. 

The old man was pulling him by the arm. 

"Come with me, I have exactly what you want" 
he said, winking at the detective. 



The old man opened a door covered with dust 
and cobwebs. They descended a spiral stair- 
case. The detective noticed that as they went 
farther down the walls began to get damp. Final- 
ly they stopped. The old man took out a flash- 
light and shone it ahead of them. The detective 
was astounded. They were standing in a cav- 
ernous room. Before them endless rows of books 
stretched out as far as the eye could see. The 
floor of the room was a lake! 

The old man got into a rowboat, motioning to 
the stunned detecitve to do likewise. As the old 
man rowed he explained: 

"This is the heart of the library. We don't trust 
the students, so we keep the books down here. 
We have the largest library in the world, bigger 
than Harvard, The Vatican, the New York Public 
Library . . . 

"And why are you showing it to me?" inter- 
jected the passenger. 

"Because you asked for a book on Y.U. In my 
forty years here no one, NO ONE, has asked for 
a book on Y.U. I knew it as soon as I saw you . . . 
You are The Messiah! ' 

The detective nearly fell overboard. He looked 
at the old man. "Another loony", he thought, 
"this place must get 'em wholesale". The old 
man had stopped rowing. 

"I will get the book for you now, O' most Holy 
One", he said, climbing out of the boat and onto 
the platform which supported the bookshelves. 
The detective waited until he disappeared into 
the recesses of the shelves, and the grabbed the 
oars. He rowed furiously. 




"Wait! Come back!" the old man shouted. 
"Why are you going? Was it something I said?!" 

But the detective didn't pause to answer. He 
reached the stairway and ran up out of the 
dungeon onto the main floor of the library . . . 
and into the arms of one of the biggest men he 
had ever seen. The giant threw him to the floor 
and snarled. 

"Make one move and I'll squash you like an 
ant" he hissed. The detective remained perfectly 
still and the giant continued: 

"You've been asking too many questions, mis- 
ter, and the Colonel doesn't like it. We also know 
you're a detective, and the Colonel doesn't like 
that, either!". 

The captive whispered "I can explain". For a 
moment he thought he would be squashed. The 
giant's eyes burned with rage and his foot lower- 
ed menacingly. But then he relaxed. 

"Okay", he said, "you can explain to The 
Colonel. But ... ", he grinned, "it'd better be 
good". 




The giant led him out of the library and across 
the street into a building which, for some strange 
reason, was called the 'morgue'. Now the detec- 
tive knew why. The giants office was here "Prob- 
ably eats students for breakfast", the detective 
thought. 

A woman, the giant's personal secretary, sat 
behind a desk, concentrating on slowly pulling 
the wings off of flies. Behind here, on the wall, 
was a chest of keys. The detective could only 
imagine how many dispicable dungeons were 
routinely opened and cast shut with those keys. 

The giant and his prisoner entered an inner 
office. The giant pushed a button beside the 
desk. Suddenly, a secret panel in the floor slid 
away, revealing a stairway. 

"C'mon, we'll take the secret passage", and 
he motioned the detective down. 

As they walked, the giant explained that the 
passageway wound under all the school's 
grounds, enabling him to sneak up on anyone, 
anywhere. He seemed proud of this tunnel. 

They traveled a while, the giant directing. They 
eventually reached an elevator. The giant 
pressed 17. The elevator opened onto a dark 
hallway, lit only by the green lights of humming 
computer terminals. 

"This is our Security Center. Up here we can 
spot and trace a water balloon". 

"Very impressive" yawned the detective. 

"And through this we can see if a student is 
making too much noise." The giant was pointing 
to an ultrasonic-infrared-telescope. 

The detective looked through the scope. He 
saw three cars being stolen, and a mugging. 

"What are you doing about that?" he asked. 

The giant shrugged. 

"Nothing. As long as no building is threatened, 
we don't have to do anything. These buildings 
are valuable". 

"But empty". 

"In any case. The Colonel is waiting for you". 




The Colonel was a short man, who stood in 
the middle of a busy room, casually pistol whipp- 
ing a student. 

"C'mon, we have your prints on the plastic 
bag, and we have a witness from the super- 
market who saw you buy the bags", The Colonel 
screamed at the bold student. 

"I didn't do it! Someone must have stolen my 
bags and used them in the water fight!" smirked 
the lying waterbomber. 

"We have ways of dealing with you. 
would another semester of Interscience 
you?" 

The student winced. 

"Or Intro to Sociology?" 

The student shuddered. 

"STOP IT!" shouted the student, "Alright, I 
admit it, I threw the water bombs!" 

The student broke down sobbing. 

The Colonel smiled, gleefully rubbing his 
hands. 

The detective was truly impressed. 



How 
grab 




The Colonel now turned to the detective. 

"Now, what can I do for you? I've heard that 
you've been asking plenty of questions. Just 
what is it that you want?" 

The detective shook his head. 

"Nothing", he stammered, "I've seen enough. 
Yeshiva University is a mystery that is better left 
unsolved. There are too many questions, and the 
answers aren't worth it". 

The Colonel nodded. 

"Glad you see it our way". Then to the giant, 
"Show the gentleman out". 



The detective sighed when he felt the warm 
afternoon sun on his face. He had only been at 
Y.U. for two days, and it felt like an eternity. 
"But,", he thought, "with all its strangeness, I 
kind of like the place. You gotta be special to 
come here". 

He strolled along Amsterdam Avenue, and saw 
an old lady sitting by a fence. She beckoned to 
him, and he approached her. She whispered this 
in his ear: 

"Everyone who comes here has different rea- 
sons for doing so. Each must discover within 
himself the reason why he is here. You have 
come, guided by a slip of paper with two letters, 
Y and U. If you truly seek the solution to your 
riddle you will have to spend many days here. 
That is all I can tell you". 

She grabbed his arm as he started to rise. 

"Give to the hospital in Israel, kinderlach", she 
said, hand extended, as she smiled a toothless 
smile.

TO THE CLASS OF 1979: 

It gives me great pleasure to greet all of you at the 
occasion of your graduation from Yeshiva College. 

The significance of this event is enhanced by the 
special number attached to it: it is the fiftieth

Borrowing from the Talmudic dictum that "a mitzvah is 
attributed to the one who concludes it," your class 
deserves the congratulations of the past fifty years. 

The sacred idea embodied at the very core and soul of 
our institution, that of Torah V-Madda, has proven its 
viability in American society. 

This also places upon you a special responsibility to 
represent what we stand for, in the course of your 
professional and personal lives, with dignity and 
respect and loyalty. 

I am sure that as the class that graduates at the

the Almighty brilliant opportunities to reflect upon 
us and the entire community in a way that will satisfy 
your own most profound spiritual desires.

May 21, 1979 



To The Class of 1979 

Yeshiva College celebrated its fiftieth anniversary this 
year; and, as occurs during most celebrations of this kind, much 
time was spent reflecting on the College's goals, achievements 
and aspirations. In particular, various symposia and speakers 
subjected the ideal of Torah u'mada to analysis and interpretation. 
This is a significant venture for, despite its elusiveness, the 
mission of this university remains vitally important to the American 
and world Jewish communities. 

These activities have taken on particular significance in light 
of several institutional and community developments. Within YU, the 
academic administration has adopted the goal — a very difficult one -- 
of reorienting the university's priorities toward the undergraduate 
colleges. This has entailed several difficult financially based 
decisions. In the community at large, critical social and ethical 
problems have gone also either without resolution or have been resolved 
in a less than satisfactory manner. 

It appears that social and communal changes have outstripped the 
capacity of institutions to deal with the changes in ethical and moral 
ways. We are finding it increasingly more difficult to cope with basic 
definitions of life and death and with the religious and value questions 
associated with them. 

Thus YU's renewed and re invigorated commitment to the symbiosis 
between society and religion takes on added meaning in this period. 
We cannot fail to define our goals; and, we cannot but address the 
critical moral and ethical issues of the coming decade. 

Sincerel y.

TO ALL DORMITORY RESIDENTS 

The disturbance Wednesday night on the ^streets 
and campus was reprehensible. Such actions oannot 
and will not be tolerated at any time, b:t was 
particu'arly a chilul hashem because it occurred 
during Selichoth week. 

We are hereby informing all Yeshiva University 
students that we will deal severely with any student 
who at any time provokes, leads or even participates 
in disorders of this nature. You are Yeshiva student 
and you live in a residential area. Please act 
accordingly.

WYUR 



Radio station WYUR was revitalized tlnis 
year, due cliiefly to the aggressive efforts of 
Station Manager Steve B. Cohen. There 
were some dazzling special events, as well 
as regular broadcasts of Student Council 
meetings and Varsity basketball games. On 
the music scene, shows ranged from classi- 
cal to progressive rock, from jazz to hebrew. 
With the aid of the Stern girls the station 
served both the Yeshiva College and Stern 
campuses. Because of the tireless efforts of 
DJs, electricians and technicians YUR ran 
much more smoothly than in previous years.

'First Down" by Jay Bernstein 




148 





Yeshiva University. Yeah, tiiat's the tactory 
that turns out doctors, lawyers and rabbis. 
Sports? Well, back in the 50's we had a ball- 
player who was almost drafted, and then in the 
60's a guy almost made the Maccabiah Team 

Okay, so no one has ever confused us with 
Notre Dame. But nevertheless, this was a very 
exciting year athletically, with Yeshiva fielding 
51/2 varsity teams (sorry hockey) on the inter- 
collegiate level. Much of the credit goes to the 
new A.D. ('Athletic Director' for you non-jocks) 
Dr. Arthur Tauber, who single-handedly has 
transformed Y.U. sports into a force to be 
reckoned with. We may not have been as big, 
as experienced or as well trained as our oppo- 
nents — but no one can say that we weren't 
competitive!

The Macabees, undergoing yet another rebuilding year, were plagued by 
lapses in concentration due to inexperience. Some leadership and cohesive- 
ness was supplied by the predominantly rookie senior contingent but it 
wasn't always enough. Oh well — Columbia didn't make a post season 
tourney either! 

Once again big Dave Kufeld, Captain and Mainstay, led the team, captur- 
ing the collegiate rebounding crown. Yep — that's right — number one in the 
whole country. David and high scoring frosh Harvey Scheff combined to 
score 35 points per game. Credit must also go to power forward Chaim 
Gettenberg, who balanced out the front line. His muscle was very useful 
underneath and helped set up the big men for many easy layups. Moving to 
guard, Faivy and Duv comprised one of the fastest backcourts fielded by 
Yeshiva. Faivy making it look easy, broke every press thrown at us and was 
high man on the team in assists. Duv, in his customary hustling role, was the 
defensive specialist — spending a good deal of his time drawing charging 
fouls and landing on the floor. Unfortunately, swingman Lenny Schwartz- 
baum, 4 year Varsity veteran and Captain of the Macs, was lost early on in 
the season because of an ankle injury. His presence was sorely missed, but 
he did come back in time to spark the seniors intramural squad.

Lunge. Parry. Ripost. Fencing had a winning 
record for the umpteenth year in a row. Ho hum. 
What are those guys trying to do? — Pretty soon 
we're going to start attracting prospects, then 
we'll go out and actively recruit; that leads to a 
big time athletic program, and then . . . what's to 
distinguish us from UCLA? 

Coaches Tauber and Marcel, despite losing six 
starters (and one mascot), surprised everyone by 
maintaining their winning tradition. Co-captain 
Mark Taragin, who placed 4th in an NCAA quali- 
fying meet, exemplified the spirit and toughness 
of the Taubermen. Marv Huberman and Baruch 
Deutch filled out Sabre, which had a superb 73- 
31 season. This somewhat made up for the lack- 
luster performance of Foil (with Epee not far 
behind) who kept all their matches close. Still, 
Co-captain Ira Herman, David Katzenstein and 
Marty Ast did fence solidly. And special recogni- 
tion is merited by Ben Kurtzer, who with just one 
year of fencing managed to run up quite an 
impressive record.

By far the most watched sport in school is 
wrestling — after all, when was the last 
time you saw so many guys in one room 
other than an evening session with Morri- 
son and Boyd. One could really sense the 
enthusiasm, with all that banging and jum- 
ping, and the crowd yelling "crossface", 
"table", and the ever popular "shoot the 
leg"! Injuries unfortunately decimated the 
team, as three starters — Captain Izzy 
Klein, Arnie Rogoff and Alan Bell — were 
desparately missed. But the wrestlers, al- 
ways tough as nails (just how tough are 
nails?) managed to salvage a 4-2 season — 
and without even breaking double figures 
In pins! They were led by the tenacious 
wrestling of Captain Saul Grife who put in 
much hard work and effort during his four 
years sojourn. This season also marked the 
first out of state road trip (a smashing 
victory over highly touted Del. State) and 
the initiation of a new coaching staff. And 
finally, who will ever forget the brutal wres- 
tling of Bugsy, Mugsy, Danny and Freddy, 
the heart of this persistent squad.

Which team had the unique incentive of 
female companionship, and as a result 
moved up several notches to a 13th place 
finish in the Eastern league? Of course, 
we're talking about everyone's favorite 
contact sport, bowling. In addition to play- 
ing the longest season, and posting the 
school's biggest winning streak, the Keg- 
lers had the distinction of leading all var- 
sities in captains, with three (C'mon, it 
looks good on the applications!), Norm 
Shapiro, Aaron Glatt and Bill Sharfman. 
The honorees, all members of the select 
200 Club paced Y.U. to one of its highest 
team averages ever. Consistency is the 
only way to describe Bill, and Norm always 
came through with a big pitch when 
needed. Aaron, finally losing his infamous 
stutter step, rounded out the trio, and to- 
gether they formed a strong nucleus. 
Much of the teams success has to also be 
attributed to rookie coach Mark Breslow, 4 
year vet Efram Berger, and to the tre- 
mendous fan support the team received.

Yeshiva College 
Golden Jubilee Celebration 



"THE GREAT 
EXPERIMENT" 

On September 25, 1928, 35 students gathered in 
The Jewish Center at 131 West 86th Street for the 
opening classes of the newly formed Yeshiva Col- 
lege. The event was a historic moment in the an- 
nals of American Jewish life, and it was the fulfill- 
ment of a dream of its founder and first president. 
Dr. Bernard Revel, and the small group of commu- 
nity leaders who supported him. 

Dr. Revel's vision was the creation of the na- 
tion's first liberal arts college under Jewish aus- 
pices. The school, in his words, would educate stu- 
dents "liberally as well as Jewishly." The College 
would incorporate the best of two great educational 
systems, the yeshiva and the university, into a 
unique institution. "Save for the inclusion of the Bi- 
ble, Hebrew language, Jewish history, philosophy, 
and ethics as required subjects, the curriculum will 
differ little from that of other colleges," Dr. Revel 
wrote in an article entitled 'Aims of the Yeshiva.' "It 
is rather in its aim and its possible ultimate contri- 
bution that Yeshiva College differs from general in- 
stitutions of higher learning." 

Opposition and Support 

The idea of synthesis of Judaic learning with liberal 
arts in a college setting was a novel one, and it 
raised widespread reaction, both good and bad, 
throughout the Jewish and educational communi- 
ties. Many barriers and obstacles had to be over- 
come before Dr. Revel's hopes became reality. 
There were secularists and socialists who opposed 
what they viewed as the spread of Orthodoxy, and 
who saw the project as an unreasonable financial 
burden on the Jewish community. 

In March 1925, several months after the begin- 
ning of the College's capital fund drive for the new 
Washington Heights campus, an editorial entitled 
"Starvation in the Ukraine and $5,000,000 Yeshiva 
in New York" appeared in the pro-Soviet Yiddish 
newspaper. New Wahrheit. The paper said, "upon 



' the early years, noting that the outlook was dim 
during the Depression, and the financial picture of 
this institution the brainless philanthropists want to 
squander millions that would be the saving of four 
million of our unfortunate brethren in Ukrainia . . . 
It is high time that the Jews of New York should 
stop and consider who their leaders are, and 
whither they are being led." 

There were those who felt the College would iso- 
late Jews from the rest of the American communi- 
ty. The American Israelite, a Reform Jewish paper 
published in Cincinnati, declared "the movement is 
unwise, un-American, and, above all, un- Jewish." 
Among the most outspoken critics was Louis 
Marshall, the noted lawyer and communal leader. 
Solicited to aid the College building campaign, he 
refused, saying that the students in the school 
"would not even have the opportunity to learn how 
to speak English with accuracy. Such a college 
would be nothing more than a Ghetto institution." 
In a letter widely circulated in the Anglo-Jewish 
press, Marshall said, "a wall of difference is created 
by those who acquire their secular education and 
religious training in such an institution and the out- 
side world, and those who are graduated under 




Dr. Bernard Revel, founder and first president of Yeshiva 
College. 



166 




such conditions are apt to be deprived of the most 
valuable part of college or university training, that 
of contact with men of varying opinions." 

However, Dr. Revel found support from the lay 
leadership of RIETS, of which he was president, in 
the Orthodox Jewish community, and among 
prominent educators nationwide. Among the 
staunch supporters were Harry Fischel, Louis Gold, 
Mendel Gottesman, Nathan Lamport, Samuel 
Levy, Pinchas Lieberman, Rabbi Moses S. 
Margolies, Nathan Roggen, Judge Otto A. 
Rosalsky, Harris L. Selig, Meyer Vessel, and Ben- 
jamin Winter. The Agudat Harabanim and the 
Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of Ameri- 
ca hailed the project as marking "the successful ar- 
rival of Orthodoxy in the mainstream of American 
Jewry." Letters of praise and endorsement 
streamed in from leading college and university 
presidents, including Frank Aydelotte, Swarthmore 
College: Lowe Bryant, University of Indiana; 
Nicholas Murray Butler, Columbia University; 
Henry McCracken, Vassar College; Fredrick 
Robinson, City College of New York; Walter Dill 
Scott, Northwestern University; Dean G. F. Kay, 



College of Liberal Arts, Iowa University; Provost 
J. H. Penniman, University of Pennsylvania; and 
Roy Lyman Wilbur, Stanford University. 

In January 1926, while Dr. Revel proceeded to 
formulate the curriculum and gather the faculty, 
construction of the original Main Building (now 
Joseph and Faye Tanenbaum Hall) began, with the 
cornerstone laying ceremony taking place on May 
1, 1927. The crowd that gathered that Sunday was 
enormous; newspaper estimates ranged between 
10,000 and 30,000. Among the many congratula- 
tory messages Dr. Revel received was one from 
U.S. President Calvin Coolidge. "The Jews of 
America," the president's letter read, "through the 
increased advantages at the disposal of the 
Yeshiva, will be able to broaden their field for the 
training of scholars and religious leaders for their 
people. This is of importance, not only for them, 
but to our national life as a whole." 

Until the new building was completed, classes 
met in The Jewish Center. The 35 students were 
primarily graduates of the Talmudical Academy, 
now known as Yeshiva University High School for 
Boys — Manhattan. They were greeted by 10 full-

brarian. The basic curriculum was divided into six 
areas of instruction: classical languages and civili- 
zation; modern foreign languages and literature; 
mathematics and natural sciences; history and 
social sciences; philosophy and ethics; and Jewish 
and Semitic studies. The program of study was well 
defined, with only a few options for elective 
courses; there were no majors as they now exist. 
Tuition for the year, including all fees, was $300. 
Dedication ceremonies for the new building were 
held appropriately on Hanukkah, December 9, 
1928. The next day RIETS and Yeshiva College 
moved into their new home. 

Washington Heights in 1928 was more suburban 
than urban. The IND subway line had not yet been 
completed, and the area was dominated by private 
homes. Sunday was activity day for New Yorkers 




The new Washington Heights campus was dedicated on 
the second day of hianukkah, 1928.

Amsterdam Ave. 

The first years of YC coincided with the Depres- 
sion, and the school, never blessed with a large en- 
dowment, was hit by financial crisis. Heavy mort- 
gage payments had to be met, and land that had 
been set aside for future building some years later 
was lost to foreclosures. Through much devotion 
and sacrifice the school survived. 

The First Graduation 

On June 16, 1932, the first commencement exer- 
cises were held in Nathan Lamport Auditorium. 
The first graduating class was made up of 19 
students from seven states. One third of the group 
was from outside metropolitan New York City, 
from as far away as Portland, Maine, Los Angeles, 
and Seattle. 

The editor of Masmid, now national director 
emeritus of Torah Umesorah, Joseph Kaminetsky, 
wrote in the yearbook a feeling that must have been 
prevalent that day: "We have been pioneers togeth- 
er in a great educational endeavor of our people; we 
have striven these years to reach a common goal, 
to realize the same idea: the harmonization of 
secular learning with our own Jewish culture." 

Yeshiva College Today 

On May 15, 1927, an article entitled "Can Yeshiva 
College Save Orthodoxy" appeared in a Chicago 
newspaper. It concluded with these words: "It is an 
interesting experiment, this attempt to harmonize 
Judaism with modern thought. Can it succeed ful- 
Iv? Time will tell." 



Today, as it celebrates its 50th anniversary, 
Yeshiva College is no longer "an interesting experi- 
ment"; it is the realization of a dream envisioned by 
its founders. The school has grown from 35 stu- 
dents to 940; from 10 full-time and five part-time 
faculty to 192 full-time and 98 part-time: from six 
areas of study to 30; and it has graduated 4,978 
students. 

YC's alumni are without doubt its greatest 
resource. During its 50 year history, the College 
has produced an outstanding cadre of alumni 
whose presence across the nation is felt in every 
major Jewish organization, in the rabbinate, the 
sciences, government, the social sciences, busi- 
ness, and industry— as well as many fields in Israel. 
A survey of major Jewish day schools and yeshivot 
throughout America would reveal a virtual "Who's 
Who" of YC alumni in key administrative and 
teaching posts. Similarly, it is imposible to speak of 
the Jewish community's foremost leadership with- 
out mentioning Yeshiva College. 

Yeshiva College began as a pioneer and con- 
tinues as such, unique among schools of higher 
learning. It is this uniqueness that will determine its 
future. As it moves into its sixth decade, YC has 
rededicated itself to the ideals upon which it was 
founded, and expanded its educational boundaries 
to encompass the ever-broadening needs of its 
students. The "Great Experiment" continues. In the 
words of President Lamm, "we shall experiment 
and revise and improve until we have found the best 
formula to provide you with both the foundations of 
a career and that intellectual sensitivity that will 
make you well-rounded, informed men of culture."

To commemorate Yeshiva College's first fifty years the editors of Masmid 79 approached four 
distinguished alumni, asking them to share with us their recollections of their days as undergraduates — 
intellectual concerns on campus, student activities and interests, and what they then perceived to be 
Yeshiva's state and direction. Here are their replies. 

Rabbi Aaron Sadowsky was born in Timkowitz, a small town in White Russia, in 1904. He studied at 
Yeshivas Chafetz Chaim of Radin, at Yeshivas Kapula, and at Yeshivas Slutzk. He emigrated to 
America in 1922, and immediately entered Yeshivas Rabbeinu YItzchak Elchanan, then situated on 
East Broadway in Manhattan. The yeshiva supported him, as it did many others, with stipends, and 
even with new clothes at Holidays. 

Rabbi Sadowsky graduated the City College of New York in 1930. In 1932 he became the rabbi of 
Congregation Beth Isaac in Baltimore, Md., a position he held until the outbreak of World War II. At 
that time he moved to South Carolina, serving as a military chaplain. 

After the war Rabbi Sadowsky returned to Baltimore, to serve his congregation for twenty-two 
years. In 1966, Rabbi Sadowsky moved to Brooklyn, N.Y., where he continues to teach. 

Rabbi Sadowsky writes: 

The Yeshiva University, also called Rabbi Isaac 
Elchanan Theological Seminary, was a great Jewish 
Orthodox institution of learning even fifty years ago, 
during the days of my study at the yeshiva (1922-29). 
Orthodox Jewish young men flocked to it's doors from 
many parts of the United States. This yeshiva was, I 
believe, the first modern Orthodox yeshiva on American 
soil. It had a faculty of the best Talmudic scholars, who all 
came here from Europe, who studied at the great 
European yeshivas, and were anchored in the great 
traditional spirit of those yeshivas. 

In addition to the religious studies which were taught in 
the first half of the day, there was a four year course of 
high school for secular knowledges in English. Thus there 
was founded the first "synthesis" Orthodox Jewish School 
of Learning. For this was the motto of Rabbi Dr. Bernard 
Revel of blessed memory, that the Yeshiva should prepare 
Jewish leaders for Orthodox Jewry that could compete 
with their opposing colleagues of the Reform and 
Conservative Movements. 

Most of the students, if not all, came from the immigrant 
Orthodox Jewish Community, who still remembered their 
glorious Jewish past and hence craved that their children 
follow them in the right step of Jewish tradition. The 
Yeshiva was the right place for them. It was in effect not 
an American Yeshiva but a traditional Yeshiva transported 
from Europe to the American soil. 

As far as I can remember the students of the Yeshiva did 
follow the recreation of the American secular schools, and 
they organized teams to play baseball, but mostly soccer, 
in Van Cortland park. But I don't think that our teams went 
out to play against teams of other schools. We were not as 
yet so Americanized. 

But within the walls of the school, we had at one time a 
Hebrew speaking club which led to the publishing of a 
student paper in Hebrew and in English called "Hedenu." I 
was privileged to be editor-in-chief of this paper. The 
articles of "Hedenu", written mostly by the older students 
of Yeshiva, were sometimes controversial, and in effect at 
one time one of the writers of "Hedenu" sharply criticized 
the management of the Yeshiva and also held up to 
criticism one of the great supporters of the Yeshiva. There 
followed a kind of rebellion in the Yeshiva. But the 



commotion was settled and calmed down quickly by Dr. 
Revel, z"l, and everything was again smooth. 

"It was in effect not an American 
Yeshiva, but a traditional Yeshiva 
transported from Europe to the American 
soil" 

It is interesting to remark that in my time practically all 
the graduating rabbis of the Yeshiva came from Europe, 
as I did, and absorbed most of their Talmudic knowledge 
at the European Yeshivas, as American Jewry was still too 
young to produce talmudic scholars. But the Yeshiva did 
not stand still and in my graduating class of 41 rabbis, 
there were already some that were American born. 

And thus the Yeshiva grew by leaps and bounds until it 
opened the first Yeshiva College under Orthodox Jewish 
supervision. Until 1929, all the students who went to 
college attended mostly the City College of New York and 
it's branches. But when the Yeshiva College opened, there 
was jubilation and hope that the students would have their 
own Jewish College, and would not have to wander 
somewhere else. 

As I was a graduating rabbi of 1929, not only did I have 
the privilege of having my rabbinical graduation at the new 
Yeshiva College building, but, thank G-d, my sons studied 
at the Yeshiva later and both graduated as rabbis and as 
graduates from the Yeshiva College. 

Rabbi Bernstein writes: 

The Masmid's editor's request to draw comparisons 
between Yehsiva University today and as I knew it as a 
student at Yeshiva College and the Teachers Institute, the 
forerunner of Erna Michael College, seemed to be, at first, 
a relatively easy one to comply with. On reflection, 
however, the definition of the essential differences, as well 
as the common denomenator have proven to be elusive 
and even difficult. 

In 1947, I knew every student in my class, almost every 
student in the college, most of the members of the faculty, 
staff, and administration-from Charley Mayo, who was 
responsible for cleaning the Commentator office on the 





Rabbi Dr. Louis Bernstein is a graduate of MTA ('43), YC ('47), Tl ('47), RIETS ('50) and Bernard Revel 
('77). Along with teaching at EMC and Yeshiva College, he is the rabbi of the Young Israel of Windsor 
Park in Queens, N.Y. Among the many positions he has held are the Presidency of the Rabbinical 
Council of America and Presidency of the Religious Zionists of America. He lives in Queens with his wife 
Pearl and their four children. 



fourth floor, to the dean and president. There was a sense 
of an extended family that touched almost every person 
connected with Yeshiva and the bonds to the institution 
were deep, personal and intimate. 

The college faculty was almost as deeply committed to 
the yeshiva as were the roshei yeshiva and Teachers 
Institute instructors. Many of them remained with the 
institution until the very end of their days or teaching 
careers. Although in 1947 yeshiva's financial position was 
improving, many of the faculty had stood by the college 
during the darkest and bleakest days of the depression. 

The yeshiva's responsibility for the student was more 
than academic. Almost all the students were on some kind 
of scholarship. Before the holidays, suits were provided 
for the needy. Food stipends were distributed generously 
as administration and student leaders took the initiative in 
extending such aid. Of course, as from the very beginning 
of time, there were differences between the various 
components of the school. I had more than my share of 
difficulties as editor of The Commentator. But these were 
family disputes and we resented outside pressures or 
intervention. Senior students felt a direct responsibility for 
yeshiva's welfare and frequently cooperated in fund 
raising activities. 

While a sense of mission and concern for yeshiva 
molded this ambience, the relative smallness of the school 
was an important factor. The much larger student body of 
today, scattered through several buildings can not 
experience the intimacy of the smaller classes where all 
activities including high school, libraries, labs, dormitory, 
and dining room were pressed into the main building and 
the adjoining Riets Hall. Yeshiva was just beginning to 
grow then and some of the offices and graduate school 
classes were transferred to two prefabricated buildings 
obtained from government surplus. They crowded against 
both sides of a power generator for trolley cars on 
Amsterdam Avenue on the site where the library now 
stands. Students and faculty travelled the subways then 
and the A train and the walk up the hill frequently 
cemented classroom relationships. 

The student of today is more professional minded. To 
the best of my knowledge, only one of my classmates is a 
physician and he entered medical school after he was 
ordained. A higher percentage of students considered the 
rabbinate and cognate professions as a career. 
Subsequently, there was a higher level of Jewish interest. 
Almost every Yeshiva College student marched in a 
protest parade in 1946 against the British in Palestine. It 
was the first of its kind for yeshiva students and it required 
a mass cut because the dean of the college adamantly 
refused to grant permission to attend. 

The Yeshiva College student of today is more affluent 
than his predecessor three and four decades ago. We had 



many more history and philosophy majors but much less 
courses to choose from. We, too, had one man 
departments but we did not view that as a particular

disadvantage. There were no P or F courses and unlimited 
cuts was still an idea whose time had not arrived. It was a 
hungrier generation and students would think twice before 
spending their parents' hard earned money in a movie 
instead of a class. Students today are more part of the 
American culture than we were. We were first and at most 
second generation Americans and today they are mostly 
fourth. 

Students today travel more widely. Many a Yeshiva 
College student has been in Israel (then still a dream) and, 
on the way home, managed to stop in Europe. It is not 
uncommon for students to winter vacation in Miami and 
during these last two years they have joined the crowd in 
the Carribean Islands. These are educational experiences 
which our generation could not even dare contemplate. 

I think our Y.U. student today is at least as observant if 
not more so than our generation. Even in 1947, some of 
our students defected to the Jewish Theological Seminary 
and one of my classmates is even a professor at the 
Hebrew Institute of Religion. Today, such switches are 
rare. The fact that many of our graduates have joined the 
faculty and administration has proven to be a very positive 
factor. Yeshiva University is a unique institution and 
whatever negative considerations such inbreeding may 
have in the general academic world, for yeshiva it is a 
boon and blessing. 

Whereas we debated whether synthesis was possible in 
America, the success of Yeshiva University is manifested 
in its graduates. The development of the professional 
schools has added new dimensions, new challenges. The 
student today must meet the challenges of growth which 
tend to osbcure the mission. They can expect little or no 
help from the secular faculty far removed from its goals 
and an administration struggling to meet the ravages of 
inflation and inevitable bureaucratic incompetency. There 
is no doubt in my mind, however, that the students of 
today and tomorrow will meet that challenge. 171 





Dr. Bernard Zazula attended Yeshiva College from 1957 to 1961, before attending the Albert 
Einstein College of Medicine. He has served as Director of the New York City Bureau for 
Handicapped Children, as N.Y.C. Department of Health Public Health Director, and as a United 
States Armed Forces Physician in Vietnam. In addition. Dr. Zazula served for two and-a-half years 
as Medical Health Officer In Jerusalem for the Israeli Ministry of Health. He lives in New York with 
his wife and two children. 



'Zaz' Zazula in '61 



Dr. Zazula writes: 

. . . reflections on Yeshiva. In preparation for this 
"assignment", I re-read Masmid 1961, and think that two 
quotes from that volume answer the questions posed. The 
first describes student concerns and interests: 

"... The Commentator settled down to its avowed task 
of the year — that of arousing the student body and the 
Administration to the dire need of improving the 
curriculum in the religious divisions of the University. 

In an editorial entitled "With Malice Towards None", 
these divisions were scored on their failure to provide an 
adequate spiritual guidance program for the students and 
different plans were suggested. Unfortunately, although 
the editorial provoked wide controversy, not much was 
done this year to further this goal. 

In other fields of news reporting the students were kept 
abreast of the latest developments. Features included . . . 
articles on problems confronting the student body, such 
as penalties for overcutting and the bechina system, as 
well as the regular features containing a timely peg. 

A three-part series on "Synthesis" was printed and a 
regular column by the editor-in-chief was reinstated. The 
sports staff spotlighted various members of the athletic 
team, and to further the cause of Zionism at Yeshiva an 
article on Israel was included in every issue." 

Sound familiar? In reading the April and May 1979 
editions of Commentator, I too had a sense of Deja Vu: 
New Dean, controversy over an accounting/business 
major, dissatisfaction with the pre-med major, concern 
over the effects of Yeshiva's graduate schools on the 
College, the status of Yom Haatzmaut, etc. As the saying 
goes; 'Nothing new under the sun.' 

"Where did we think Yeshiva was heading?" The 
second quote is from Masmid 61 's epilouge: 

"As we leave Yeshiva, ready to go along our many 
ways, the University is in the throes of a massive building 
program. Across the street from the new dorm, now 
beginning to wax ancient, a new building is rising — a 
classroom-administration building ready to house the 
planner of future undertakings. And in midtown, plans are 
being prepared for other edifices to house an evergrowing 
student body. 

And so it goes on and on, the same old story of 
expansion and progress. But for what purpose? Is it just to 
increase Yeshiva's prestige, and through it that of 
American Jewry, in the academic community? 



"When Yeshiva expands, it does so with 
a purpose. Progress is important in any 
institution, but here at Yeshiva it is 
progress rooted in tradition that counts." 

MASMID '61 



Perhaps this is what some people are hoping for — 
another Harvard out of a divinity school, with no religious 
division to speak of. 

But this is not Yeshiva's purpose, nor that of its 
administrators . . . And while the JSP student (JSP: 
Present day JSS — Ed.) and many of his fellow comrades 
in the other religious divisions may still not be able to 
understand the synthesis that is Yeshiva University — a 
University that requires the learning of Talmud as well as 
secular science — it is there. It exists in every individual. 

When Yeshiva expands, it does so with a purpose. 
Progress is important in any institution, but here at 
Yeshiva it is progress rooted in tradition that counts." 

Somewhat naive? Maybe — at the time. But looking back 
with a perspective of eighteen years, and having recently 
taught at the college for a number of semesters, I truly feel 
that it is precisely this undefinable "synthesis" which sets 
Yeshiva apart and somehow, despite ourselves — and the 
administration — manages to permeate and influence our 
lives and futures. 
Mr. Ribner writes: 

While the nation's college campuses rumbled with 
protest during the 60's, we at Yeshiva were becoming 
increasingly self conscious about our calm, almost 
untouched oasis smack in the core of the Big Apple. It felt 
almost as if the rest of the academic world had somehow 
managed to thrust itself into a position of national import 
and all we could muster was the energy to watch the 
proceedings on television. During the years when Viet 
Nam became the knee jerk expression of all that was venal 
and corrupt in government, 80% of our student body 
signed a petition supporting fully the administration's Far 
East policy, under the impression, misguided by hindsight 
only, that we would thereby insure a favorable Mideast 
policy from those same national leaders. Those students

David Ribner is cretainly no newcomer to the Yeshiva scene, having graduated Yeshiva College in 
1968, been ordained by RIETS in 1972, and graduated from the Bernard Revel Graduate School in 
1972 and the Wurzweiller School of Social Work in 1974. He served as the spiritual leader of

who sincerely opposed the war were held to be at best the 
disloyal opposition. 

The single international, and for us, personal issue 
which should have galvanized the campus into united 
action was the Six Day War in 1967. Unfortunately, what 
little response we could muster was limited to participation 
in those demonstrations organized by the Jewish umbrella 
groups. We thousand men of Yeshiva College 
distinguished ourselves by being indistinguishable from 
anyone else. Again a few students followed the dictates of 
conscience and, ignoring the perils of missed exams and 
poor grades, chose the greater peril of going to Israel 
during the conflict. We admired them, but only from afar. 
So much for our soberly reasoned and ethically motivated 
activist response to the international scene. 

Internally, we conducted ourselves in much the same 
way as had Yeshiva students for the past several decades. 
Our own "paper chase" continued to dominate all other 
activities, particularly for the majority of the classes who 
had chosen to aim for careers in law or medicine. We 
perceived the academic quality of the institution to lie 
somewhere between good and mediocre, certainly not 
excellent, but occasionally inspired by a particularly 
successful faculty member. By and large, the graduate 
schools still looked favorably upon Yeshiva College 
students, and all of us took for granted that an 
undergraduate degree held little intrinsic value. We 
comforted ourselves with the thought that the long days of 
interminable lectures would enable us to handle any future 
educational endeavor. 

If an area of general dissatisfaction existed, it focused 
on the almost unconscienably poor choice and level of 
Jewishly oriented courses, such as Bible, History and 
Philosophy. Bible courses which stressed translation. 
History courses which differed little from those taught in 
high school and Philosophy courses in which notes from 



"To most of us Yeshiva College 
represented, and perhaps still does, the 
essence of undeveloped potential on 
which the future of American and 
possible world Jewry precariously 
balances." 



previous years were used by so many students, secure in 
the knowledge that few significant changes in course 
content would be forthcoming. We grumbled, some of us 
even found our ignorance embarrassing, but we never 
pressed for change. Revamped courses would have meant 
the risk of more work and lower marks — why blow a sure 
thing? 

Those of us who cared or thought about the future of 
the college tended to leave graduation convinced that, 
with rare exceptions, things would remain the same. 
Classes were growing, buildings were rising, the budget 
crisis had yet to reveal itself, at least to the public. Some 
lenthening of sideburns represented the only 
manifestation of countercultural inroads, both physically 
and philosophically. Few of us left with warm regard for 
the Yeshiva, and of those graduates with whom I maintain 
contact, few have developed positive feelings in the 
interim. To most of us Yeshiva College represented, and 
perhaps still does, the essence of undeveloped potential 
on which the future of American and possible world Jewry 
precariously balances. Such a situation is both frightening 
and depressing and will change only when the class of 
'68, the class of '79 and all other graduating classes 
initiate the concerned involvement the college has so long 
needed.
