President Richard Joel speaks at Reishit

President Richard Joel of Yeshiva University spoke to the talmidim of Yeshiva this morning. The president spoke about issues that affect the modern orthodox world in general as well as issues more specific for the college bound talmid. He discussed the importance of being in a Torah focused center and the healthy balance that can be struck by a dual curriculum that encourages spiritual and intellectual growth. This, as the president said, is an important equilibrium for an Orthodox Jew in the modern world to maintain throughout his or her life. The president then answered questions asked by the talmidim and met with prospective students of YU. Due to technical issues the speech cannot be made available for download.
