      Matthew L. Berde, Dallas, Texas

      An attorney, Matt Berde is an Associate in the Banking and Finance section of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP in Dallas, Texas, prior to which he was Senior Associate at Alston & Bird LLP in Dallas.   Matt was educated at Northwestern University and the University of Virginia School of Law, from which he earned his Juris Doctor.  Active in his community and on a broader scale, Matt is committed to doing well by doing good. He mentors law students, is a member of the Dallas World Affairs Council and served as Weightlifting Coach for the Special Olympics.  He cares deeply about Israel: While attending Northwestern, Matt took a course taught by visiting HU Professor, Shlomo Avineri; he came to identify the Hebrew University as an intellectual powerhouse, where faculty and students address contemporary issues, domestic and international.

      In Matt’s words: “Today, supporting Hebrew University is a mission critical to preserving Israel’s foundation as a liberal democracy. Universities as platforms for learning about and debating controversial ideas are threatened everywhere and must be defended, no more so than for the Jewish people.  AFHU LEAD will provide me with exposure to the innovations of HU and Israel’s dynamic economy, and to the diverse backgrounds and ideas of my cohort members.”
