Touro College is a global network of institutions of higher education, and on June 9, 2014, Dr. Robert Goldschmidt, vice president for planning and assessment, and Rabbi Dr. Simcha Fishbane, executive assistant to the president, touched down in Moscow to visit the local Touro campuses. While brief, their two-day trip to the Russian capital included many important meetings at Touro’s Lander Institute of Jewish Studies and Moscow University Touro, an independent institution. During the visit, they assessed the schools’ compliance with the accreditation standards of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and they met Rabbi Berel Lazar, the Chief Rabbi of Russia.  While the primary focus was academic oversight, the most gratifying aspect of the visit was hearing about the great impact Touro has within the Russian Jewish community.
