Former U.S. Ambassador to Romania, Alfred H. Moses of Washington, D.C., Receives Honorary Degree from Yeshiva University

Jun 1, 2010 — Alfred H. Moses, a philanthropist, communal leader and former U.S. ambassador to Romania from Washington D.C., was presented with an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Yeshiva University. YU President Richard M. Joel bestowed this honor upon Moses at YU’s 79th Commencement ceremony held Wednesday, May 26, 2010 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

In conferring the degree upon Moses, President Richard M. Joel said, “Mi Moshe ad Moshe lo haya k’Moshe. Between Moses the lawgiver and Moses Maimonides, there was no one else like Moses. Today we honor our own Moses, who shares with his namesakes a commitment to law and Jewish life, wisdom and Jewish thought.”

Moses is currently senior counsel with the law firm of Covington & Burlington. He was previously a partner from 1965-1994 and 1997-1999. He is also currently co-founder, senior partner and chief operating officer of Promontory Financial Group, LLC and affiliates. The firm provides consulting services to financial companies.

Moses has had a distinguished career in public service spanning more than three decades. He served as special advisor and special counsel to President Carter, and in 1994, President Clinton appointed him Ambassador to Romania where he served for three years. In the 1970s, he represented the organized Jewish community in Romania in negotiations with the Ceausescu regime to facilitate the emigration of Romanian Jews to Israel. He has lectured extensively on European and Middle East issues with articles appearing in prestigious publications such as The New York Times, Washington Post and Jerusalem Post.

The recipient of many awards, Moses received the Marc Cruce Medal, Romania; the Pentru Merit Award, Romania; and the Frizis Award from the National Coordinated Effort of Helenes. Ambassador Moses was elected four times as national president of The American Jewish Committee – the longest serving president in more than three decades. He has held numerous other leadership positions, including former president and current chairman of the Centennial Committee and Advisory Council; Hebrew College, chairman of the National Board; Project on Ethnic Relations, chairman; Council on Foreign Relations, member; Jewish Publication Society, former director; Haifa University, former director; Golda Meir Association, former national chairman; and Georgetown University, former Board of Regents member.

Moses has created a philanthropic fund to support Yeshiva University’s Fund for Women’s Leadership and a Fellowship Fund at Stern College for Women.
