Dear Friends:

Not only does June mark the start of summer, it also allows us to welcome the class of 2024 into the esteemed ranks of YU alumni. Brachim Haba'im!

For those of you whom I haven't yet met, I'm Beth Lebenson Praver, the Director of Alumni Engagement.

To our newest grads, welcome to the 70,000-plus strong YU alumni community! While you were a YU student for three or four years, you鈥檒l be a YU alum forever 鈥 and that comes with amazing benefits.

YU has alumni around the globe, in communities from New York to California to Israel. YU alumni work in fields ranging from finance to entertainment to education to medicine, and they come together with each other and the university to learn, attend social events, network, and grow professionally and personally.

To get started, I encourage you to , sign up for affinity groups that interest you, , and attend the YU Young Alumni Summer Social at Tabernacle Steak House (complimentary when you ).

And perhaps most importantly, reach out and say hello. My staff and I are always available to you, and we can't wait to see what you'll do next.
