The new president of the University of California, Mark Yudof, and his wife are, to say the least, Super Jews. They keep a kosher house and received the Jewish National Fund Tree of Life Award; he served on the board of a handful of Jewish organizations; she is the past president of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and sits the boards of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Hillel International.

In fact, Yudof, who will soon take the reins of a 10-campus system with 220,000 students, seems to know Torah so well that he speaks like its Central Character:

“I am what I am.”
