Meet the Musmakh: Rabbi Yosef Bronstein Continues His Father’s Devotion to Torah Scholarship at RIETS

Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS) and the Yeshiva University community will celebrate the ordination of its largest class of musmakhim [ordained rabbis] at its Chag HaSemikhah Convocation on March 23, 2014. The record class of rabbis represents an internationally diverse group, hailing from five continents and more than 50 North American cities. While most will remain engaged in either full-time post-semikhah Torah study or religious work—Jewish education, the pulpit, outreach or non-profit work—many will pursue careers in other professions, including medicine and law.

In the weeks leading up to the celebration, YU News will introduce you to several of these remarkable musmakhim

His father, Rabbi Chaim Bronstein, was a musmakh of the yeshiva and had worked as an administrator there since before Yosef was born. “The study and teaching of Torah were heavily-emphasized values in our home,” recalled Bronstein. “We regarded the faculty at RIETS as respected Torah leaders and role models.”

I’ve promised to keep you apprised of significant developments as we continue the important work of building a sustainable Yeshiva University for generations to come.

A number of positive initiatives are underway, but I am writing to you primarily to report that the University has just entered into an agreement to sell 10 residential properties in close proximity to our Wilf Campus in Washington Heights. This sale delivers a tremendous return on the University’s original investment and provides an infusion of cash that will be used to strengthen our financial position and enhance our ability to invest in our core objective: delivering an unmatched educational experience for our students.

Yeshiva University has been a presence in Washington Heights for almost a century and we couldn’t be prouder to call this vibrant neighborhood our home. YU’s purchase of the buildings seven years ago was intended to enhance our presence here and to benefit all of Washington Heights, a neighborhood whose diversity makes it so exceptional. That objective has been achieved, and the buyer respects what we have built around Wilf Campus and shares our commitment to preserve the special flavor of the community. Read the rest of this entry…
