Jewish Doctor Named Interim President at Harvard
Dr. Alan Garber, an economist and Jewish physician, has been appointed as the interim president of Harvard University, replacing Dr. Claudine Gay, who resigned just three months into her tumultuous tenure.
Garber has previously served as the head of the prestigious institution and the chief academic officer, and his appointment was widely accepted with a broad consensus.
Dr. Garber, 69, holds a doctorate in economics from Harvard and a medical degree from Stanford. He is a member of the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Medicine.
Lawrence Summers, former president of Harvard and former U.S. Treasury Secretary, said that Dr. Garber “is universally liked, admired, and respected, and is a superb choice as interim president.”
In an interview with the university’s student newspaper, Dr. Garber expressed regret over Harvard’s initial response to the Hamas’ attack on October 7 and the beginning of the war in Gaza. (YNet / VFI News)
