Yeshiva University honored US Senator John Fetterman as an American Patriot and Hero of Israel at its 93rd Commencement on May 29, 2024 at the Louis Armstrong Stadium in Queens.. Rabbi Dr. Ari Berman, YU’s president said, “Senator Fetterman is one of the true heroes of our time for his unwavering and courageous commitment to moral clarity, which has fortified our community and been a clarion call for our country.”

Berman praised the graduates saying, “During this dark period of rampant antisemitism and polarization across college campuses, Yeshiva University students stand out for their academic excellence, character and commitment to service.”

In accepting his honor, Senator John Fetterman mentioned that he was removing his Harvard Kennedy masters graduation hood because he has “been profoundly disappointed with Harvard’s inability to stand up for the Jewish community after October 7.”
