Vice President and Dean Robert Goldschmidt presented a plaque at the 40th Touro College Commencement Exercises in Lincoln Center to Rabbi Yehuda Lehrfield, 2014 valedictorian of the Lander College in Flatbush, in recognition of his outstanding academic record. A resident of Far Rockaway, Yehuda earned a perfect 4.0 GPA and scored in the top 1% nationally on the Dental Admission Test (DAT).
Yehuda, who learned in the Mirrer Yeshiva in Israel and in kollel in the U.S., received semichah from Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg in Jerusalem. In the fall he will be attending the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore, ranked among the top in the U.S.
Yehuda’s three sisters and his wife are also graduates of Touro’s Lander College in Flatbush. ϖ
