Yeshiva University in New York City has announced a $10 million gift from Felix and Miriam Glaubach in support of its career center.
To be renamed the Shevet Glaubach Center for Career Strategy and Professional Development, the center offers internships and job search assistance and works to strengthen students' critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and digital technology skills. The center also connects students with Yeshiva alumni who can serve as mentors and help them secure a job.
"We feel that a gift to name the Career Center at Yeshiva University is the most impactful investment we can make. At this time of uncertainty, growing and strengthening the Career Center at Yeshiva University will bring confidence and stability to countless students and their families," said Felix Glaubach, who serves as a trustee of the university. "By helping Yeshiva University students to have successful careers, we will enable them to be future leaders of Yeshiva University, the Jewish community and leaders in the United States and Israel. This gift is an investment that makes our prior gifts to Yeshiva University all the more valuable. The highest form of charity is enabling others to support themselves, and we look forward to graduates of the Shevet Glaubach Center at Yeshiva University becoming business leaders and philanthropists in their own right."
