alumniAFHU welcomed over 40 members from the 1987-88 Hebrew University One-Year Program (now the Rothberg International School) to their class reunion. The reunion, chaired by Michael Altman was on Sunday, July 10th, 2016, at Abigael’s on Broadway in New York City.

Resa Leinwand (‘88) welcomed the group and introduced speaker Emily Rose (’15). Resa announced that the class will be establishing a scholarship fund in memory of Jason “Yehoshua” Friedberg (z”l), a classmate who was killed while serving as a lone soldier in the IDF. Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres while reliving Hebrew University memories and fondly recalling their rocking 80’s hairstyles. guitar
