Robert Kraft, founder of the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism, has donated $1 million to Yeshiva University (YU) to establish the Blue Square Scholars program.

This initiative is designed to support and accommodate top-tier students, providing a safe and nurturing environment for Jewish students amid a surge in antisemitism.

YU President Rabbi Dr. Ari Berman praised Kraft’s impactful leadership and commitment to fostering inclusivity and respect. The program not only aims to protect students but also to cultivate future leaders who advocate for unity and push back against hate.

This donation comes at a critical time, especially after the October 7th terror attack on Israel.
