Rabbi Dr. Meir Soloveichik and Mr. Alan Dershowitz (’55 YUHS) are the scheduled speakers at the upcoming “Anti-Zionism in the Academy: Israel and the Future of American Education” conference on Tuesday, April 25, at 7:00 p.m. in the Lamport Auditorium at Yeshiva University’s Wilf Campus in Washington Heights.

The event, which is open to the public, is part of the Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy / Yeshiva University High School for Boys Centennial Lecture Series and is cosponsored by the Zahava and Moshael Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought, for which Rabbi Dr. Meir Soloveichik serves as the director. Doors open at 7:00 p.m.

“The Centennial Lecture Series shines a light on YU High School’s proud history of providing the very best in Jewish education by exposing the wider YUHSB community–alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, students, and friends–to a small selection of our impressive alumni,” said Rabbi Josh Kahn, YUHSB’s head of school. “It is an honor to bring Alan Dershowitz, a world-renowned legal expert and prolific author, back to campus to discuss a topic that is so crucial to Jewish students and educators on high school and college campuses across the country.”

A proud alumnus of YUHSB, Alan Dershowitz is an American lawyer, jurist, and author, as well as a prominent scholar on United States constitutional and criminal law. Now a political analyst and regular contributor on CNN, Dershowitz is renowned for his involvement in several high-profile legal cases and as an outspoken commentator on the Arab—Israeli conflict.

Additional YUHSB centennial year events will take place both on the YU campus and in other locations.

Space for this event is limited and advance registration is recommended. To RSVP, please visit centennial.yuhsb.org/events. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Elissa Schertz at elissa.schertz@yu.edu.
