An Appreciation: Sy Syms: An Educated Donor Is Our Best Philanthropist: "An outsider who became an insider at Yeshiva University, he was neither an alumus, parent, nor donor. My predecessor, David Zysman, introduced Sy to the institution after working together for many years on behalf of The Israel Bonds Organization. He was an out-of-the box match for YU, as Sy had no prior contact with the University. Yet, Sy became one of our most illustrious, loyal and passionate trustees, respected by all who knew him and beloved by our students."
