    The Israel Defense Force

    Aryeh Broth, age 23, grew up in Silver Spring and attended the Yeshiva from 7-12 grade. After graduating high school he continued his yeshiva studies in Israel for 2 years after which time he decided to enlist in the Israeli Army. He was inducted into the Artillery unit of the IDF and after intensive training, served on the borders of Lebanon and Egypt. Currently, after completing his service, he is pursuing his Bachelors in Biology at Bar Ilan University and plans to go on to medical school.

    “The yeshiva instilled in me the importance of giving back to the greater community which helped inspire me to make aliyah and support the Jewish people by serving in the IDF.”
  • Dr. Sheemon Zackai

    Saving Lives

    Dr. Zackai attended YGW from 1990-1993 and then went on to attend Yeshiva University and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He completed a pediatric residency at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City and a Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship at the Weill Cornell Medical Center.   Today he is a Pediatric Critical Care Physician at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, where he treats critically ill children of all ages, and participates in the care of heart and liver transplant patients among other duties. He is also an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Mount Sinai ICAHN School of Medicine and is the Director of the Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship there.
    “The dual curriculum at the Yeshiva prepared me for the rigors of Medical School while creating a strong Jewish foundation that has kept me connected to my Jewish learning and community despite my demanding schedule.”
  • Leah Berry

    Jewish Federation and AIPAC

    Mrs. Berry graduated YGW in 2000. She received her Master’s in Social Work and Jewish Communal Service from the University of Maryland School of Social Work and Baltimore Hebrew University. She began her career at The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore where she was responsible for lay-leadership development and the building Jewish community cohesion and connections with individuals from across the religious spectrum. She initiated leadership programs for Jewish teens, partnerships between Baltimore City Schools and volunteers from the Jewish community, and staffed the Jewish Women's Giving Foundation. Mrs. Berry now serves as AIPAC’s Deputy Director of the Mid-Atlantic region and manages a team responsible for growing the pro-Israel movement.

    “I have tremendous gratitude to the Yeshiva because of its warm and welcoming environment. The teachers and staff were accessible and present, served as incredible role models, and taught us in a holistic way to always be working on ourselves as people. The solid foundation that I received in the Yeshiva enabled me to understand who I am as a Jew and how to engage with people from all walks of life.”

  • Rabbi Avi Mammon

    A Community Leader

    Rabbi Mammon, originally from Staten Island, NY, attended the Yeshiva College program from 1999-2004. For the past 13 years he has served as the Rabbi of Congregation Light of Israel in Rochester, NY. Although the synagogue has been in existence for 117 years, when he arrived it was struggling to get new members and was only running weekend services in a rented room of another congregation. Today, the synagogue owns its own building, has over 100 active members and runs nightly Torah learning programs for dozens of people in addition to regular programs with the local JCC that draw over 200 individuals from all walks of life.
    “The Yeshiva provided me with the tools, knowledge, and vision needed to become a leader of an out-of-town Jewish community. The Yeshiva’s top priority is the education of the students but a major component of that is to simultaneously have an impact on the greater community. It’s not just about academic learning - it’s about helping the students reach their greatest potential as individuals, with their future families, and as members of their communities.”
