Thank you for your support of Yeshiva University’s Zahava and Moshael Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought.

Under the direction of Rabbi Dr. Meir Y. Soloveichik, the mission of The Straus Center is to help develop Jewish thinkers and wisdom-seeking Jews by deepening their education in the best of the Jewish tradition, by exposing them to the richness of human knowledge and insight from across the ages, and by confronting them with the great moral, philosophical, and theological questions of our age. We do this through a combination of honors classes and academic seminars for YU’s undergraduate and semikha students, as well as Great Conversations with visiting scholars and public figures on some of the great human questions that have engaged Jewish and non-Jewish thinkers.

Your generosity provides The Straus Center with the necessary resources to build an engaged community of Jewish leadership committed to the nexus of Torah values and Western thought under the auspices of Yeshiva University.

Please be in touch to discuss specific projects that interest you by contacting Tamar Major in the Office of Institutional Advancement: or 212.960.5393.
