YU students meet Fetterman on Capitol Hill


     More than 100 Yeshiva University students met last week in Washington with Sen. John Fetterman, one of Israel’s most vocal supporters in Congress. The Pennsylvania Democrat posted photos on social media holding a blue YU sweatshirt that states, “Yeshiva University. Am Yisrael chai. Together with Israel.”

    “I don’t know why anybody would think I like hoodies,” the senator, known for his hooded sweatshirts, joked on Friday.

     Jon Greenfield, YU assistant vice president of government relations, said hundreds of students in YU’s Political Action Club travel annually to Washington to meet with members of Congress and their staffs to encourage support for Israel.

     “Their efforts truly represent the values of Yeshiva University as a top-tier academic institution and strong advocate for Israel,” Greenfield said.
