History 



Rabbi Israel Miller: Sept. 5, 1981 
1981 




_ of the Y.U. Centennial (1886-1986) 



Through Crusader castles and snowy mountains, by 
golden beaches and ice-glazed rivers, they fought a bitter 
war. The soldiers of Milhemet Shlom Hagalil are 
businessmen and farmers, fashion designers and mechanics, 
professors and construction contractors, our friends from 
Yeshivot Hesder, our cousins in Haifa, our neighbors who 
made Aliyah to Jerusalem. Hoping to preserve the lives of 
the Galil's inhabitants now and in the future, they lost 
many of their own lives. As the smallest possible token of 
our indebtedness and appreciation, we dedicate this year- 
book to them. 

The Lebanon War was the most painful in Israel's 
history. For the first time the soldiers fought without the 
support of a national consensus behind them; also, many 
were unclear as to the ultimate goals of the war. Especially 
because of this, the Israeli soldiers deserve our respect and 
support. For whatever debates rage about the political 
aspect of the war, the conduct of the soldiers is worthy of 
admiration. They fought bravely, pursued their goals 
valiantly, and acted humanely in the midst of the most in- 
human conditions. Strong as cedars and gentle as deer, they 
battled strenuously to bring peace to their northern border 
and a semblance of order to a troubled land. 

Once more Israel and her people have impressed us with 
awed respect and admiration, but again the occasion is a 
tragic one. We hope that in the future these men and 
women can struggle not with weapons but with plows, 
scalpels, and watercolors; may they work together as well 
and as unitedly as they did in Lebanon, but with the only 
task before them the furtherance of a decent and productive 
national life within the borders of Eretz Israel.

The idea of Torch Ll'modo flifs rhrough oil 
ospecrs of the college; ir shows up in odd places 
and strongly influences the flavor of fhe whole, like 
birs of Cheddar cheese in a chef's salad. And we 
hove heard ir discussed rime ofrer fime. We hove 
heard ir debored, berored, expounded, confound- 
ed, eulogized, criricized, perfecred, dissecred. 
We've seen ir used ro churn our public relarions 
marerial, as fresh heads of cabbage are rurned in- 
ro cole-slaw. We're roo used ro rhe idea, roo 
nunnbed by irs frequenr use for cynical purposes. 
We ore ofren unoble ro realize rhar Toroh U'modo 
plays o viral ond consronr role in our doy ro day 
life or Yeshiva. 





The images of Torch Ll'modo ore 
clear and shorp for us all. Who hosn'r 
seen the wonderful picrure of rabbis — 
generously bearded, garbed in block — 
sronding with o hosr of sifrei roroh on rhe 
steps before rhe originol IXobbi Isaac 
Elchonon Theological Seminary? Who 
hosnr seen photographs of Yeshiva 
students, distinctive in their kippot or 
denim skirts, toiling in front of computers 
ond test-tubes? Who hasn't been con- 
fronted with an imoge of secular and 
sacred books mingled on a desk with 
the straps of t'fillin? These ore all good 
images, poetic images, suggestive im- 
ages. They tell us much about the con- 
cepts of Toroh U'modo: continuity with 
the post, interest in modernity, synthesis. 
But they don't tell us a heck of a lot 
about how the idea of Torah U'moda 
permeates our life at the college, like 
soy souce permeates a pepper steak. 
This is on aspect well worth considering. 




For insronce, we hove school on Chonuko. Shiur 
and Jewish studies on Chonuko is one rhing; bur it's 
crazy rhor we hove ro sir through lectures on Vic- 
torian poetry ond Quantum mechanics when our 
minds ore filled with Mocobees and twirling dreydls. 
Be that as it may, every nighr for o week we trudge 
bock to class to light Chonuko candles in the holls. 
With our heovy books and our shoes wet from the 
snow, we shiep out choirs, overturned garbage cons, 
little tables, ond we light the menoroh. This yeor, the 
members of one floor in Morg started singing 
Chonuko zmirot after hodlokot nerot. Maybe It was 
the spirit of the day, maybe it was the spirited music 
someone was ploying on his saxophone, but all of a 
sudden they started to donee. Soon the dancers ran 
wild through all the rooms, pulling people owoy from 
the telephone, grobbing them out of bed. Cramming 
into the elevator, they came to the next floor, song 
ond danced and recruited more people. They visited 
every floor, they shanghaied every guy they met to 
donee with them. Finally they reached the lobby; 
tired as they were from the long school day, they 
found the strength to whirl for half on hour in a circle 
Ground the confused security guards. They sang 
louder ond louder. 

Thot, my friend, is Toroh U'mado. 




Lit • ! ] I 





No college campus is complere wirhour o 
dromoric society, and YC is forrunore to hove 
the exciremenr of the Yeshivo College Dromoric 
Society. The excellence of YCD5 producrions ore 
lorgely due ro the dedicorion of the ocrors and 
rhe exrroordinory omounr of rime rhey spend 
rehearsing. Recently, o group of students hod o 
strong, burning desire to act. However, they 
could not put in the time YCDS demanded, 
because rhey hod previous commitments in the 
form of night seders and rhe like. So rhe Yeshivo 
College Jewish Theotre was formed. In the spirit 
of Judy Gorlond ond Mickey Rooney, they 
decided to put on o show for the Spring Festival 
of the Arts at Yeshivo. "I con get the fourth floor 
of rhe library," one of them said. "I con get o 
local butcher store to donote the props we 
need," said another. The students built the sets, 
direcred rhe ploy, acted, and organized musicol 
accomponiment. They didn't socrifice any of 
their time set aside for learning at night. The 
crowds loved their ploy; and the critics roved. 
Toroh U'moda. 





Afrer elemenrory school few people in 
America really celebrate Tu Dshvor. We're 
no longer presented with o bog full of ex- 
otic fruit We ourselves nnust run off to the 
grocery ot the lost minute and buy figlets 
from California In order to be yotse the 
shehecheyonu No one over thirteen sings 
"Hoshkediyo Porochot " ony more. This 
post Tu D'shvQt was a cold ond snowy 
doy. Everyone thought that the only way 
we would notice the chog would be the 
much appreciated skipping of tochonun. 
But in the cofeterio ot lunchtime, omong 
the shapeless eggplant cutlets and 
tomato-soaked stews, was a bowl filled 
with fruit. Here were figs and dotes; here 
were raisins and nuts; here were sticks of 
the fruit which looks like pieces of dried rub- 
ber, which no one sees except on Tu 
D'shvat. Shehecheyonu was no problem, 
and o mood of holiday come to the 
Yeshivo students 

Only in on atmosphere of Toroh U'moda 
could a schooldoy be so suffused with the 
special feeling of a chog. 




Campus conrroversy is on imporronr aspect of col- 
lege life. In the weeks before Meir Kohane came to 
speak here, orgumenrs raged about whether he should 
be allowed to speak, whether he should hove been in- 
vited, whether we should react strongly to his coming. 
The evening he spoke, students formed o moss protest 
rally, voicing objections not to his presence but to his 
views. The protest was so strong that Kohone hod fo 
be slipped in o bock door to ovoid a confrontation with 
the protesters. The scene could hove been o sixties 
demonstration against the war in Vietnam. Except for 
one thing: inside the hall, Kohone defended his radical 
views with words from haiachic and biblical sources. 
Outside the protesters waved signs inscribed with 
psukim in bold letters. The demonstrators song songs of 
peace and universal understanding, token not from 
Dylan or Boez but from the words of the Toroh. 






The yearly cycle or Yeshivo is rhe Jewish cycle. Our 
college doys ore filled wirh Jewish legrnir^g and values; 
our yeshivo doys ore filled wirh rhe (Iberol orrs ond in- 
volvemenr in Western sociery. The whole atmosphere 
is sorurored wirh rhe Holocho as o lorke is sorurored wirh 
oil. If you wonr on ideologicol exominorion of Toroh 
U'nnoda, rake a look or Robbi Cormy's excellenr Toroh 
U'nnadQ reader. If you wonr a mindless gloriflcorion of 
rhe concepr, YUPP, con provide you wirh sufficient 
moreriol. If you would like a poetic description, Cynrhio 
Ozick has a beautiful one in her lorest novel, The Can- 
nibal Galaxy. But if you wont to understond, or ro 
remember, how Toroh U'modo offecrs us srudenrs os 
we study ot Yeshivo, take o simple look at any aspect 
of student life. Stop ond consider: this college is not like 
oil other colleges. There is something very special obour 
it; wirh oil its foults this ottroction mokes it sometimes 
irresistoble. 

That is Toroh U'modo.

TO THE TESHIVA COLLEGE CLASS OP 1985: 

Bv accident of the calendar, you have a very special 
distinction: You are the last class of the first century 
of the existence of Yeshiva University. 

Your class has achieved a splendid record at Yeshiva 
College — competent, constructive, and cooperative. You 
are an ideal microcosm of Yeshiva College as a whole. 

As you march on to the future — in careers, families, 
and personal growth - we are confident that you will 
represent Yeshiva University with dignity, implementing the 
ideals of Torah Umadda In a manner that will reflect glory 
upon your alma mater . 



I wi 
a cr 



sh you the years, the strength, and the happiness to m? 
a i;ieative contribution to your communities, to America, 
Israel, and to the Torah which you studied so assiduously 
during your years here and which, I hope, will continue to be 
"your life and the length of your days."

March 15, 1985 



Dear Graduates: 

You have successfully completed your studies at Yeshiva College. 
This is more than a personal achievement. As members of our fifty- 
fourth graduating class, you share with your classmates and more than 
a half-century of alumni a commitment to the Yeshiva University ideal 
of Torah u'Madda. 

This commitment has required an enormous investment of time and 
energy. You have chosen to involve yourselves in a rigorous dual 
program, each component of which is in itself demanding of full time 
attention. You have accepted the challenge of integrating your Torah 
studies with what is best in Western civilization and culture. 

Your success in meeting this challenge and realizing the University 
ideal will be reflected in your lives and careers. You are fortunate tn 
having as models those graduates who have demonstrated in their lives and 
careers that this challenge can be met successfully and that the Torah 
u'Madda ideal retains its freshness and vitality. 

Therefore, as you leave Yeshiva College, I congratulate you, I wish 
you well, and I urge you to bear in mind that you will be the models for 
future Yeshiva College men.

\^e came from a high school a block away; we 

came from halfway around the world. Our first year 

was the most successful year for the Early Admission 

Program, which opened the doors of the university 

to those gifted few who showed remarkable 

scholastic achievement (were there any freshmen 

over sixteen? ).

Fresbman Year 




II was a year of change for the institution. A terrible 
battle raged over restructuring the curriculum. Students 
greeted the proposal with either: "Oh yeh! This here 
college is going to let us do whatever the heck we want," 
or "this university surely must remember its respon- 
sibility in espousing the great philosophy of liberal art 
education.^* Wurzweiler was about to move uptown, and 
many faculty members led us to believe that the move 
would involve ao influx of scantily clad, seductive 
graduate students ( who turned out to be mainly nuns, 
male social workers, and middle aged housewives). 

We were surprised to read in the New York Times 
that Yeshiva would soon be closing down. We just got 
here! Was it something we said? The problem was 
financial and it was remedied by Yeshiva''s appeal to the 
public for one hundred million dollars. Is that not 
chutzpah? A rash of muggings descended on Yeshiva 
students like a plague. Remembering the small amount 
of the security forces at that time, we are tempted to say 
(before we think better of it) ''''Thank goodness for the 
sniper!" 




We returned lo school nexl Seplember — Bui wait, 
did we? No, we left Washington Heights for a year in 
Israel. However a number of students stayed behind and 
actually continued college! What a year those V.C. 
Sophomores had. Again Yeshiva made the New York 
Times, this time for the extraordinary achievement of 
holding an elaborate M*A*S*H* Bash, bidding 
farewell to the 4077. We bid farewell lo another 
military man, the beloved Colonel Marmorstein, who 
retired after doing whatever could be done lo keep us 
secure in the pre-sniper years. The college was censured 
for the innocuous, totally blameless act of firing a 
tenured faculty member. 

There was censure from other sources because of the 
establishment of the Y.U. cheerleading squad, a group 
of dedicated Stem women who followed the basketball 
team around from game lo game. One team member 
responded to the loud criticism with the memorable 
quote, **The cheerleaders help to ease tension on the 
busride to the games." No one ever figured that one out.

We settled back into school our third year, 

comfortable and already at home. A dynamic 

student council was elected which sponsored 

various cultural events, such as lectures, 

concerts, and smashing up a car during midterm 

week. Because of these and other controversial 

events, the student council was accused of 

Hellenism. "That's ridiculous," responded the 

Student Council president at the Y.C.S.C. toga 

party, clad in a toga and crowned with a laurel 

wreath. "We reject Hellenism as much as the 

next guy."

Junior Year . • • 





Conunencemenl^ which was to be held in Radio 
City Music Hall, was moved back to Danziger 
Campus; the rockettes weren^t ready for Yeshiva 
studeal6 yet. On a more serious note, a malicious 
sniper struck, stalking Yeshiva students with tragic 
results. We were warmed by the support of the entire 
Jewish community. The orthodox students of a city 
college, for example, had T-shirts made up that said 
"Don't shoot. I go to Queens.'"' To decorate the area, 
the administration bought flowers, trees, and 
benches, the last of which were soon labelled 
"sitting duck'"* benches, and were surprisingly rarely 
used. 

The fabled gym began to rise, or more exactly, 
construction crews began ripping up the grass and 
hedges in the back of Danziger Campus. Purim fun 
at Yeshiva was enhanced by the Hymietator, with 
jokes that Jesse Jackson, the inspiration for the 
issue, would have been proud of. 




Senior year. Ah, senior year. No worries, no 

pressures. Wail, why are we all still in the library 

studying? Why are we still rushing from class to class? 

Aaah — GRE's, and M-CATs, and L-SAT's, and the 

almighty Kaplan's. Who said that senior year is a 

breeze? It's more like a small hurricane. But still there 

is a certain spirit in the air, a greater tendency to cut 

classes and push off schoolwork. 

YCSC sponsored a highly controversial political party 

(neither Demo<Tatic nor Republican) on election eve. 

Original posters advertising the event included the 

letters "'BYOB" — which does not stand for "Bring 

your old Bubby." Meir Kahane spoke at the college, 

eliciting fervent responses and the most violent public 

protest here since security threatened to discontinue van 

service between Y.C. and Stern.

So long Bame§ and Noble! 

This year^ The Student Council has helped to further 
enhance Yeshiva's landscape with the YCSC Bookstore, 
adding a new dimension to student life. In addition to a full 
range of college texts, magazines and stationery, the 
Bookstore also offers notebooks, sportswear and other 
items bearing the Y.U. emblem. It^s always great to drop by 
with a pricing complaint or just to see if youVe made the 
cover of Rolling Stone. Joining Jonathan Kranzler, the 
Bookstore^s director, are the diligent and able staff of Mark 
Raden and Jeff Cejerman, responsible for management and

the second floor of the Morgcnstern do

' der this a horrifying atrocity. it 
rd.ro X there should ever be a fire on the floor wl 
if the extinguisher ux« empty? A fire extinguisher is 
ething must be done to punish him and teac 
is no question regarding his guilt. Joshu. 
h«ad dorm counselor saw him playing with the extinguisher, 
of this crime when action is taien everybody 
must be informed 30 as to warn others as it says no' 
expulsion from the dormitory is necess£Wy as it says 
ah Marc is ^f:y*out-of -state, he does have an ; 
to the school. Perhaps, at first thi 
it is a very serious offense and in general there 
students fooling with extinguisher. Additionally, this is not 
time he has been caught commiting this crime. He has received 
warnings from friends, the dorm counselor, and even the head do 
He has not taken heed to these warnings and worse yet he sh< 
disregard for the safety of others. 

Thank you for taking your time to read th'.is letter and pie; 
to it that the dormitories remain a safe jjlace to live.

June '85 



by Joey Lipner 



I can't believe how soon I'll leave the Heights 

And school. Soon we'll sit 'neath traffic lights 

Bored by the best speakers, and snore or snort 

By our million dollar basketball court. 

We've yearned for this, we've earned this parchment burned 

With red ribbons, mouthing like gibbons all we've learned. 

But classes? I don't remember classes. 
Remember rather the important things: 
Hoagies, movies, village-punk-rock glasses, 
Stern vans, Broadway, large engagement rings. 
Fire Extinguishers spraying swords of water. 
Baseball in the hall, hours on the phone, 
College friendships, pac-man for a quarter. 
Waking chavrutas so you won't learn alone, 
Teachers fat and thin, excellent or bad 
Caravans to Bernstein's, lab 'till ten o'clock, 
Counting by bottles how much beer you had, 
Finding burgers below your dirty sock. 

Why me? Was I worthy at last to reap 
The dis- and advantages these all heap 
On me? The campus, with all its factors. 
Domes and towers, vans and gyms and tract 
Straight through the stones it too demands me true 
And asks with sneer or smile or tear, Why You? 




The Heights of My College Career 
by Naftall R. Friedman 

Looking back at my four years at Yeshiva University, I 
realize that I have only actually been here for two years. 
Nevertheless, the intensity and profundity of the experience 
of those years has left an indelible impression on my outlook 
on life and on my bank account. 

Years from now I will flip through the pages of this yearbook 
to recapture those memorable events that made our stay at 
Yeshiva so special like Homecoming Parade and Clovis 
Maksoud's stirring speech. To further evoke the memories 
and emotions of my daze at Y.U.. I will supplement my reading 
with Commentator Purim issue of 1985 — an edition which 
will always remain in our hearts and in a safety deposit box in 
the Y.U. office of Public Censorship. 

One of the great advantages of attending Yeshiva which I 
will always be grateful for is the opportunity to have lived and 
studied in Washington Heights. "The Heights." as it is affec- 
tionately referred to by its English-speaking inhabitants, is an 
interesting neighborhood with a rich history. One can stroll on 
187th St. between Amsterdam and Audobon Avenues at all 
hours of the day or night (at one's own risk) and partake in 
the festivities of the perpetual mardi-gras. On one short block 
one can hear many different types of ethnic music piping 
through car stereos and thirteen speaker cassette radios 
large enough to house four to six occupants. Local women, 
aimlessly gazing out of their open windows, pillow under their 
elbows, watch their husbands (?) and others down below, 
engaging in their favorite activities, like automobile repair and 
'friendly' domino games. Live chickens occasionally cross the 
street: later they will be traditionally roasted to a sumptuous 
crisp under five hundred watt red light bulbs at Mcdovidos or 
one of the area's other fine restaurants. 

Because I lived in exotic Washington Heights during the 
semester, my friends always understood why I preferred not 
to spend my intercession sunning myself in places like Puerto 
Rico, Mexico, and Spain. Instead. I would spend them sunning 
myself on the slopes of Killington, studying for Mishna Berura 
behinot. 






Doctor, Lawyer, Rabbi,Chief. 



It shouldn't surprise you that a number of our 
students become rabbis- After all. we are the onJy 
Yeshrva University. 

But doctors and lawyers? And business 
chiefs, too? 

Yes. 

Yeshiva University— with its 15 schools, 
divisions and afilliates— is an extraordinary, one-of- 
a-kind leaming, service and research institution. 
Dedicated to keeping the tradition ofjudaism alive. 
And committed to giving men and women, of all 
religions, the finest higher education available today. 

On our campuses, you'll find a faculty which 
includes one of the world's outstanding Talmudic 
scholars and the only female Nobel Prize Laureate 
in the United Stales. 'Vou'll learn about on-going 
research projects in the fields of solar energy, elec- 
tronics, and gerontology— as well as Holocaust 
and Sephardic studies. And you'll come across spe- 
cial seminars on subjects ran^ng from 'Anliques 



and Judaica" to "Financial Planning for Women," 
We have seven specialized libraries, hous- 
ing some 850.000 volumes. A fascinating museum 
devoted to ancient and contemporary Hebraica 
and Judaica. An expert who investigates commu- 
nication among dolphins. And that's only the 
beginning. 

Practically everyone in the world has heard 
about the Albert Bnstdn College of Medicine. (But 
how many know that it's part of Yeshiva University?) 
Rated among the top medical schools in the na- 
tion, Bnstein has graduated almost 3.000 brilliant 
physicians and scientists. It has been applauded 
as a medical research center— with life-saving pro- 
grams in cancer, heart disease, liver and kidney 
ailments, neurological and brain disorders, diabetes. 
and more. 

Only five years old, our Benjamin N. Cardozo 
School of Law has already made a name for itself 
A member of the first graduating class was appoint- 



ed clerk to a United Slates Supreme Court Justice. 

And right now at our Wurzweiler School 
of Social Work, a Protestant minister, a Roman 
Catholic priest, and eleven rabbis are getting their 
masters in a program that is the first of its kind 
for clergy. 

If all this comes as a surprise to you, there 
should be one thing that doesn't. Tuition alone can- 
not possibly finance and maintain our present 
programs. Tuition alone won't provide the kind of 
higher education Yeshiva students demand and 
deserve. 

We need your support. 

The Century Campaign aims to raise 
$100 million for the University's immediate and 
long-term needs. Please join our list of 
distinguished donors. 

Your gift— whether big or small— will truly 
make a difference to our future doctors, lawyers. 
rabbis, and chiefs.

The yearbook staff would like to thank all those people who 
have helped in the production of MASMID '85. We decided 
that this yearbook should come out in the summer so that our 
memories of Y.U. will still be fresh while looking at it. We are 
sorry that the latter events of the year could not be included in 
the pictures. These events include: Y.C.D.S. Production of 
JOSEPH (which was a marvelous show), Ira Meisels becom- 
ing Valedictorian over Jeff Kern and Jack Doveck, Dr. Lee 
elected Senior Professor, Barry Resenberg elected President 
of Y.C.S.C. over the everpopular Jo Kranzler and Nadrum 
Bane, Commentator's 50th Year Dinner, the N.C.A.A. Riflery 
Championship held on Amsterdam Ave. (?), the 1985 
graduation — (in which the graduates will not be represented 
by a valedictorian, unless Egon Brenner is it), Yom Haatz- 
maut Gala Celebration and Concert, Senior Dinner and many 
other exciting events. 

We thought it was worth it for you to receive MASMID '85 
before your PhD's so we risked it. Sorry to all those who miss- 
ed the boat. 

Thanks again, 

David & Elliot 





TION 

The past turns up su 

You can't say when it happened, or why exactly 

In something someone's written. 

Then is the time for all good men 

To admit the past they've forgotten 

Is fiction.
