What does the "Y" think of the "U"?

Picture description: Rabbi Avi Weiss and & Mr. Richard Joel at the 2003 Areyvut Annual Inaugural Lecture given by Mr. Joel at the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale. Rabbi Weiss is founder & dean of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah and rabbi of HIR. Mr. Joel is president of Yeshiva University.

“With so much to be done for the Modern Orthodox community I view [Chovevei] and RIETS as complementing each other. While our academic and professional curriculums may differ we share a common goal — the strengthening of Modern Orthodoxy and the whole of the Jewish community. I especially look forward to working together with my dear friend President Richard Joel.”
