I was very disappointed after reading Francine Klagsbrun’s column attacking the joint address before Congress by the prime minister of Israel (“Golda Would Not Have Confronted The President,” Opinion, March 13).
Your article surprisingly downplayed the scope of problems reported at YU (“YU No-Confidence Vote Spurs Internal Battle,” March 20). You merely noted President Joel’s “lucrative” contract without mentioning that he is among the highest paid university presidents in the United States, although heading a financially distressed institution that is firing faculty and terminating programs.
Regarding the article “YU ‘No-Confidence’ Vote Spurs Internal Battles” (March 20), I would like your readers to understand that student success is the focus of our work, and that academic excellence at Yeshiva University is assured. YU is a unique, caring, and vibrant community that is intact and strong.
