NEW YORK — When Rabbi Asher Lopatin is formally installed as the new president of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah on Sunday (Oct. 6), the program will showcase what makes the Modern Orthodox rabbinical school unique in the Orthodox world.

The event’s centerpiece will be a roundtable discussion with leaders of three non-Orthodox rabbinical schools: Rabbi David Ellenson, Arnold Eisen and Rabbi Arthur Green. Such diversity is unheard of at other Orthodox rabbinic institutions.
