YU will present him with the Presidential Medallion, the school’s highest award for global leadership, which last year went to the inventor of Israel’s Iron Dome, at its May 29 commencement.

The university called Fetterman an “American patriot and hero of Israel” and “a beacon of hope and strength for the country and the world.”

The school praised Fetterman for deeply engaging in “the post-October 7th battle against antisemitism” and “pursuit of justice” for hostages.

“It is truly humbling to be invited to share in this milestone with the graduates of Yeshiva University,” Fetterman said. “As we gather to celebrate the achievements of the graduating class, we must also acknowledge the profound significance of their journey within the context of the recent surge in antisemitism across the country.”

The senator has angered his fellow Democrats as well as pro-Hamas protesters, for being blunt and unapologetic in his views.

He has unequivocally supported Israel in its war against Hamas, rubbing progressives the wrong way who say they supported Fetterman’s campaign and now feel betrayed.

Fetterman has taunted protesters by waving Israeli flags at them and other similar tactics.

They could also honor Rep. Richie Torres, a congressman from the Bronx, and also a strong supporter of Israel.
