Wurzweiler Graduate Honored as a Yeshiva University “Point of Light”

At the 2013 Yeshiva University Hanukkah Dinner, President Richard M. Joel recognized eight Points of Light—students, faculty and alumni who embody the mission of YU—calling each one up to light a symbolic candle on the menorah.

Savyon Lang, a hard-of-hearing graduate of YU’s Wurzweiler School of Social Work, was recognized for her determination not only to excel in her own studies, but to help others in the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities overcome their disabilities. She plans to improve her sign language and earn her Licensed Clinical Social Worker certificate so she can open up her own practice to service the deaf and hard-of-hearing populations and beyond.

The administration, faculty and staff of Wurzweiler congratulate Savyon on this honor.
