Wonderfull words, sadly, he was 'preaching to the quire.' His speech should go viral.
Due to the menchlikite exhibited by Dr. Kraft, I just became an instant New England Patriots Fan. Hi

I listened to the inspiring speech given by Robert Kraft at Yeshiva University as suggested. I listened to the entire speech and was, indeed, inspired. It was a privilege to hear it and I thank you for the recommendation. Most excellent.

Robert Kraft's Yeshiva U
Great speech well done and thought out. I felt very inspired.Thank you

Mr. Kraft said all the right things and I hope the graduates were inspired.I am wondering, however, why the gown he was wearing has crowns with crosses on them?
May 31, 2016 5:44 PM
That is Columbia University's academic regalia
Mr. Kraft graduated from Columbia University and that it their academic gown. The people on the podium wear the academic gowns from the institution that granted them their degrees, not the institution at which they are speaking.

That is the symbol of Columbia University (where he graduated)
May 31, 2016 10:08 PM
He is a graduate of Columbia College.
Columbia was established in1754 as King's College and that symbol is the King's Crown!

The crowns with crosses form the logo of Columbia University, originally King's College. He won a big award there and, surely have other connections. But why wear that particular robe at this Yeshiva graduation? However, more perplexing tome is that the man is not wearing any head covering of any type. I'm also surprised he doesn't appear to be wearing a head covering of any time, which seems odd for a major event held through the auspices of Yeshiva University.

Cloumbia Univ. King's Crown
Established in 1754 as King's College in lower Manhattan, after the revolution the college was renamed Columbia, yet the King's Crown was retained as Kraft established the Kraft Center for Hillel at Columbia and paid for its own building on 115th street. He also received an honorary degree for his alma mater years ago.
