There are so many wonderful ways to connect to YU in the New York metro area, but graduates in cities across the country and in Israel, don’t want to miss out! With a focus on networking and building their bond with YU, alumni are coming together in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, and Jerusalem this spring and summer.

nick_muzin1Alumni in Washington, D.C. are attending a lunch today at noon with special guest Nick Muzin ’97YC, ’01E, Director of Strategy and Coalitions, 113th Congress. Nick joined the Yeshiva College Board of Overseers in the fall and was recently profiled in YUToday. Read the article here. The event is hosted by Dave Weinberg ’05YC, Director of Freedom 25, a national coalition to commemorate the Soviet Jewry movement. He said, “YU is partnering with us to plan a commemoration of the 1987 rally for Soviet Jewry and I feel it’s only right to reciprocate and host an alumni event for YU. This is an example of the ways that we can all help one another, and it’s important for alumni to continue to develop their relationship with YU.”

Los Angeles-based alumni representing various professions will come together in June to speak to current and future YU students from LA at the home of Raphy and Rivka Nissel, parents of Tzvika Nissel ’97YC. Alumni professionals will share their professional success, discuss career paths and opportunities in LA, and meet and connect with fellow YU Alumni.  For more information, email

Finally, plans are in the works for a special 1960s decade reunion in Jerusalem this summer. If you are interested in serving on the event committee, please contact Dina Burcat at

Regions for future focus include Florida and Chicago. If you are living one of these regions and want to help get your alumni community on the YU map, please contact Barbara Birch at
