I STERN COLLEGER YESHIVA UNNI T S»j Jf Wfj na a " ) f , naba P a 3ji ; i WH!JCija The Jewish people, time and again have been compared to stars. Our number, as promised to the Avot is ( " insert Art 9 " ), as vast as the stars in the heavens. Whenever one gazes upward at the stars, one inclines his face heavenward and directs his thoughts and prayers to G-d. But stars do more than twinkle in the heaven. They are more than indicators of direction, harbingers of morning, omens for good, portents for evil, or metaphors for the Jewish people. According to Maimonides, the stars and heavenly bodies each possess a soul and an intellect with which they are able to recognize and glorify their Creator. They have a self-awareness of their position and from this position serve G-d to the utmost of their ability. For this reason, the title KOCHAVIAH is very apropos for Stern College ' s yearbook. Just as the stars are aware of those who stand before and after them, we, as graduates of Stern College for Women in the year 1986, should be aware of those women who roamed the very halls, trod the very steps and occupied the very rooms we do now; and those who will come to fill the very spaces we will soon vacate. It is not easy to be a woman in this day and age, and to meet this challenge, Stern College provides a unique opportunity to iearn from a variety of many exciting and demanding disciplines and to incorporate Torah values at the same time. The idea of such an institution is one that looks fine on paper, but needs the participation of individuals to actualize it. For this reason, we would like to dedicate this issue of Kochaviah to Stern women — past, present, and future — to women who have demanded, and subsequently received and who will continue to demand and receive, a quality education in both Judaic and secular studies. As the recipients of such an education, we, together with those who have proceeded and will succeed us, will then, like the stars, be able to serve G-d with an increased self-awareness. r ' e.;ie ible. for sure NO later than Sept. Kochaviah 1986 Editors-in-chief: Esther Kaufman Deena Schramm Layout Editors: Debra Cohen Debbie Sutton Photography Editors: Suri Davis Miriam Weiss Business Managers: Leslie Baker Shulamit Glau- bach Lisa Lerer Art consultant: Naomi Talansky Staff: Linda Blank Suzette Fleischer Lilli Mandel As the dawn begins to break through the night sky while we frantically lay out ads. crop pictures, type copy and proof all of the above, it seems hard to believe that we have reached the end of what seemed to be. at least in the beginning, a herculean task. There were many times during the course of the year when we often wondered why we had voluntarily assumed the burden of producing a yearbook (the second time around for us both). In all honesty, we continue to wonder. However the sense of accomplishment that comes when reviewing the completed proofs compensates for much of the agony. As in any other endeavor, there were many people along the way that helped us tremendously, often providing the much needed inspiration to continue. ( " Don ' t tell me you ' re going to work on yearbook again. Won ' t it ever get done?!? " ) Yes, it finally is done, and while we can ' t thank the " multitudes " who helped in one way or another (those who got their pictures in on time, handed in their bio sheets early - and without prompting — , and those who not only brought in their allotment of ads but succeeded in financing this venture), there are a number of individuals who we would publicly like to thank: NAOMI — for doing the Hebrew calligraphy on such short notice, ERICA — for designing the artwork on page one at 2:00 in the morning, SHERI— for the d ' var Torah SARA — for use of THE OBSERVER room. ELANA — for her support, TOM VIDA — For showing us the ropes and convincing us that our mistakes were not that drastic, THE OFFICE STAFF — for their encouragement, OUR ROOMMATES — for putting up with the pre- deadline mess and intrusions by the entire senior class at one point or another, LARRY — for tolerating interrupted phone calls, Sundays spent on yearbook, and for helping us with the layout and the literary aspects of this book. «0 P r| ■ ' ■ ' H-. jnp ejew spd Yeshiva University office of the president November 5, 1985 MEMBERS OF THE STERN COLLEGE FOR WOMEN GRADUATING CLASS 1986 Please accept my warmest congratulations upon your graduation during this historic year of Yeshiva University ' s Centennial celebration. As you leave the University and the College, and attain more perspective, you will appreciate just how revolutionary Stern College is in the context of contemporary Jewish history. It was in the earlier part of this century that the Beth Jacob schools were inaugurated with the blessings of the sainted Chofetz Chayyim. This extraordinary advance in the Jewish education of women was not greeted with unanimous approbation, but it certainly triumphed — to the benefit of Jews throughout the world. Since then, the world has changed considerably. Women have broken into fields undreamed of heretofore, and have entered the world of the professions as the equals of men. Higher education is open to any woman of merit, no different from men. And here is where Stern College symbolizes the second important step in Jewish women ' s education in this century: the development of a liberal arts college which provides advanced education both in the humanities and sciences on the one side, and in Jewish studies on the other. We have every reason to be pleased with the achievement of our students. Your class in particular represents the beginning of the blossoming of Stern College in quality as well as in quantity. We hope that you will have, equally, every reason to be proud of your alma mater, as you come back to visit, to study and teach in it, to send your children and neighbors ' children here, and to support Stern with your substance and sentiment for years and years to come. Cordially yours, NL:is NORMAN LAMM President 500 West 185th Street, New York, N.Y. 10033 • (212) 960-5280 Dear (iradu.i- Stem I !oIlege rarely think of themselves as revolutionaries. Yet, since that day in lHM when this College opened it doors thanks to the generosity and : lr Mai Stern i.V ' Hi. we have Keen not only active participants hut true .1 movement that baa revolutionized the contours of Orthodox Judaism. This movement, the commitment of large numln-rs of women to in-depth Jewish irahip, baa brought new vitality to our people. In an age when women are ng their values and goals and often discarding traditional relationships, we md m» meaning to the words tural imeeha. The faculty and administration is very proud of your achievements and confident of your future directions. We look forward to your successes and to your continuing involvement with this College which will always be your home. .ou go from strength to strength in all your undertakings. Sincerely. Karen Bacon Dear Graduates, The term " women ' s education " is an oft used label void of meaning. It seems to attribute a unique quality and distinct approach to the education of women as opposed to the education of people in general. Is the desire to know, not a universal and natural inclination for all people of all ages? Woman ' s quest for knowledge has been no less intense than that of her fellow man. She has always sought to satisfy her intellectual curiosity, to grapple with philosophical concepts and to understand the secrets of nature. What is unique to the world of education, and broader in dimension, is not womi o ' a education but rather .Jewish education. It is Jewish education that explores worlds which remain untouched by society at large. Jewish education requires not only the pursuit of knowledge lis interminable questioning and delving, but a sensitivity and meticulous attention to ethical and moral behavior. The Torah provides a framework within which every aspect of life operates. At Stern College for Women you are fortunate to be the beneficiaries of a formal Jewish education that was previously unavailable on a higher level. You study in an environment where to know is not sufficient You have been taught not only to " learn " , but to " learn and to do " Learning should result in the fulfillment of mitzvol .md m positive actions thai are performed honestly, earnestly and I ' . Your success will be measured by the way in which son practice and apply what oii have learned, " I. el your SOU] know Torah then it will be a crown on your head. " ...ur continued search for knowledge combined wiih ;, commitment to I ..r, ih Values, I rown you Willi wi-dom May this fai lilt) ol making the- best use of knowledge, experience and understanding, benefit familj . ommunity and people. Sim erelj . Ethel Orlian Dear Graduates, Graduation is a time for celebration. It represents the culmination of your efforts and perseverance to complete the unique course of Torah u-Madda study at Stern College. Congratulations and good wishes are thus in order. But in the Jewish tradition, any completion of study, any siyyum, entails not only recognition for what has already transpired. It also includes a continuation, or a beginning anew of the scholarly process. Whether it is the beginning of another Talmudic tractate when one has been completed or the completion and beginning of the reading of the Torah on Simhat Torah, we do not rest on our laurels. The Jewish Studies Faculty has been proud to instruct you in the intricacies of Torah and Jewish Scholarship and to imbue you with teachings of morality and ethics which ought to accompany an intensive learning experience. We hope that what we have taught will be viewed by you as just the first step. Take the methodologies and the materials, the thoughts and the theories and use them well as you embark upon a new phase of study which will hopefully be a lifelong one. You may find that setting aside time to study or mustering the resolve necessary to concentrate on your studies will require great effort. Please do not despair! Remember instead the aphorism of the Amora R. Yizhak (Megillah 6b): " If a person says, I have expended effort and I have succeeded, believe him her. " It might not seem possible for that person to have been able to master that much Torah knowledge or to have really penetrated through to the core of a very difficult Torah concept. But if the student has put in great effort, the greatness of our Torah vouchsafes that no scholarly achievement is impossible. Dear Graduates, As you are about to leave the sacred walls of our Yeshiva I would like to share with you a very beautiful Torah thought expressed by the famous Spanish Talmudist and exegete Rav Isaac Arama, the author of the Akiedas Yitzchak. In the Biblical narrative dealing with the creation of woman we find that G-d gives her two names. The first name isha — teaches that woman was created from man (ish) and stresses the fact that like him she is capable of understanding and advancing in the intellectual and moral spheres just as the matriarchs, prophetesses and righteous women did throughout Jewish history. The second name Chaua — the mother of all living kind, alludes to the power of childbearing and to the responsibility of rearing children called motherhood. What Rav Arama is stressing in his exegetical comment is the technical definition of woman ' s unique double role and mission in life as it is depicted by the names she was given at the time of her creation. Stern College has given you the tools with which to accomplish both these missions. Through your exposure to intensive and sophisticated Torah analysis and methodology and your acquisition of yediat ha-torah you have been given the technical capability of continuing to learn Torah during your future years. This in turn will enable you to continuously grow intellectually and spiritually in your observance of Torah and mitzvos and to make an impact and contribution to society at large. Through the Jewish philosophy and theology courses you have taken you have been inculcated with an acute awareness of what it means to be a Jew and specifically a Jewish mother. A Jewish mother is the soul and inspiration of the Jewish home. It is she who will ultimately help determine her family ' s spiritual direction in life. Our Sages teach us that each generation is redeemed because of the righteous woman of that generation. It is my belief that you will be capable of personifying all that I have mentioned above and will in turn help the Jewish people of our generation experience this redemption. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you, the Class of 1986, continued bracha v ' hatzlocha in all your future endeavors.

(9) Socializing in the library proved to be a blast HTi L % - Mm (10) though socializing over the phone was even more " stimulating. " (11) " Thursday night here I cornel! What a great way to end a week!! " 89 Pirkei Avot (Ethics of our Fa thers), the masechet (tractate) replete in Jewish aphorisms and transcendent values, cogently elucidates how a simple interchange of Torah has a cosmic effect on our proximity to our creator: (3:2) " When two people sit together and discuss words of Torah. the Shechina (presence) of G-d is with them, as it is said ' Those who feared G-d spoke to each other, and G-d listened . . . and in His presence a Sefer Zikaron (Book of Rememberance) was written ' " Mortal words of Torah are thus indelibly inscribed in the metaphoric Sefer Hazikaron of Hakadosh-Baruch — Hu. Surely the " imitato dei " principle compels us to imitate this precedent with words of Torah in our personal, tangible Sefer Hazikaron: The Kochaviah of Stern College! How appropriate it is that the theme of our yearbook celebrates the strides made in women ' s Torah learning and Torah living. This progress is evident both within the Stern microcosm and within the spectrum of Orthodox thought. To appreciate the historical development of the complex relationship between women and the Etz Hachayim (Tree of Life), we must trace its pendular motion from past to future. In our past lie the roots of the Efz Hachayim. embedded in Maasei Avofeinu. the deeds of our spiritual progenitors. Interestingly, Adin Steinsaltz ' s analysis of the character of Rivka Emenu portrays her challenges as surprisingly contemporary. Chazal (our rabbis) comment on Rivka ' s recorded genealogy, (Bereshit Rabbah 63:4): " The daughter of Betuel and the sister of Laban ' that her father was a ramai. a deceiver, and her brother was a ramai, yet she emerged a Tzadekef. a rose among thorns. " She came from a society immersed in decadence, an upbringing antithetical to Torah ideals, yet her Neshama remained untainted. When pregnancy proved excruciatingly painful, " Vafelech Lidrosh Ef Hashem " (Bereshit 25:23) she turned to the ' local Torah center ' of Shem and Ever and sought communication with Hashem. Rivka is the archtype of the independence and certainty necessary for survival. Whereas Eliezer asks Hashem for a sign to identify the ' proper girl, ' Rivka needs no assistance in recognizing " the man meditating in the field " as her future husband and alights from her camel. While a hesitant Lavan bids that Rivka wait " Yamin or Asor " before embarking with an unknown man to an unknown destiny, Rivka does not vaccillate and leaves promptly. Her acguaintance with a base human nature sharpened her ability to discern familiar flaws in her son, flaws unperceived by her sheltered husband. Yet Rivka aspires, and clings to her " Olah-Temimah " . she respects the bracha of a man who represents innate purity. Rivka attained spiritual elevation in less than optimal conditions, and it is this challenge which faces every graduate of Stern College and every member of Klal Yisroel. Moreover, according to the approach of the Baal Akedaf Yifzchok. the essence of the sin of the spies was their inability to meet this very challenge. The spies were unable to conclude the Masechet. the chapter of the supernatural, in their own development. They were nurtured by bread which fell from the heavens, they were guided by an Amud Haesh. a pillar of fire which brightened the darkness. They feared that a natural existence in Eretz Yisrael, where toil was necessary for bread, would not be a conducive environment " Lidrosh et Hashem. " The emphatic conclusion of the spies was " Lo nuchal la ' alot " (Bamidbar 13:31) — we cannot rise, we cannot elevate the state of our existence They perceived the physical and the spiritual as eternally dissident, two irreconcilable facets of life. Calev countered with " Aloh Naaleh. " suggesting a physical and spiritual rise. His approach was holistic, the physical must serve to enhance the spiritual and reflect its light. It is this simple, yet profound reality which has reverberated throughout our Stern experience. Today, when the vision of " Veler Banim al Avotam " (Malachi 3:24) is increasingly realized, we continue our guest for integration and holism. It is with infinite Hakarat Hatov (gratitude) that we thank Stern College for the fortification necessary to operate in the world of Rivka and the Meraglim (spies). We are grateful for the imparting of " Aloh. " the technical ana intellectual skills necessary for natural self-sufficiency, and for the " Naaiah. " for the inculcation of a standard of spiritual excellence. The Pesikta Zutra states " Whoever completes a masechet (chapter) must declare a holiday. " We rejoice at the culmination of this chapter of our lives. I fervently hope that our conclusion will resemble the philosophical extension of the poetic meter of the Akdamut prayer recited on Shavuot. This prayer is halmarked by the final word in each verse, which ends in a " fat. " followed by an Aleph. Let the c onclusion, the Taf of our Stern masechet catalyze an aleph — the commencement of a more advanced chapter, " Ve ' neiech Lidrosh Et Hashem. " Sheri Chasin 90 1 jsL.

His life was saturated with the teachings of Torah, which he absorbed all his life. Yitzchock was unanimously beloved, because he sought ways to help others fortunate enough to know him. He was an outstandhg bad chesed, and his fine and sweet personality endeared him to al those with whom he came in contact. " Yitzi " I walk into your room and you ' re not there I pick up your picture and at it I stare. I see a boy with a broad smile, A boy who lived tor such a short while. Why did you die at such a young age? Why are you part of the past, like a torn, dusty history page? We shared so many beautiful memories together, That at least will be between us forever. In Central Park West, biking we went, Those days are gone, I can ' t tell you what they meant. As a kid you taught me how to play ' catch, ' You taught me a lot about life, but now it ' s all past. I miss our long talks and walks, I miss your help, your kindness and your thoughts. Yitzi, you weren ' t just a brother, you were a friend, You were there when I needed you, upon you I would depend. The day you died, The heavens cried. The sky was cloudy and full of rain, Everyone indeed felt the loss and the pain. Yet today there ' s no more rain in the sky, But there are still plenty of tears in my eyes. I ask, " Can it be that you are dead? " Or is it some piece of imagination running through my head? Why is it if you ' re not here? I feel you ' re not far but so close and so near. Why in death do people achieve fame? A yeshiva will be named after you, but can life be the same? Yitzi, a boy so young, yet he touched everyone ' s life, A boy who was so caring and oh so bright! Now as older brother I will no longer have, Sometimes I feel angry, sometimes I feel sad. I remember the advice about school that you always gave me, I ' ll miss you at my graduation at which you won ' t be. People describe you as doing good for others, I don ' t know how many sisters had such a special brother. We enjoyed you for 26 years, You gave us good memories, but now we have tears. I remember when you saved an old woman ' s life, It doesn ' t seem fair that you ' re dead, just doesn ' t seem right. I thought that I would live To see your kids. I thought a father you would become, But now you won ' t be a father, grandfather or have a son. Oh, what more can I say? I hope Moshiach is on his way, I hope our lives will be filled with better and more meaningful days. Yitzi, you will forever be remembered in our hearts! On January 18, 1986, a special human being, David Kagan, died. He was 23 years old. At the time of his death, David, a graduate of the Ramaz School and The Johns Hopkins University, was a candidate for a Master of Arts degree in international relations at The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. He had hoped to go forward, said one of his professors, " armed with education and knowledge, " to pursue the cause of peace in a troubled world. David, as those who knew him will confirm, had an unfailing love for humanity, an extraordinary concern for his fellow man and an uncommon passion for peace. In the limited time allotted to him, David pursued, with all his energies, his undaunted desire to instill real peace in the hearts of all human beings. In his gentle, caring manner, he deeply touched and brought together many people throughout the world — people of different nationalities and diverse cultures and creeds — all of whom saw in David the spirit of his vision: that real peace could be achieved by opening and maintaining a dialogue among people, each relating to the other and each respecting the other ' s dignity and humanity. Shortly before his death, David said that while he did not know if he could change the world, he firmly believed he had the obligation to try. To perpetuate his noble ideal and his memory, David ' s family, friends and others whom he touched have created a lasting foundation which will bear his name. In his honor, they have established the David Kagan Foundation, dedicated to the fulfillment of his dream: the advancement of peace through furthering peaceful and beneficial relationships among people of different nationalities and faiths. ' Hillel says: Be of the Disciples of Aaron, loving peace and pursuing peace, loving your fellow man, and drawing them near to the Torah.
