Rabbi Ari Weiss, executive director of Cornell Hillel, is one of 16 honorees recognized by Hillel International, the largest worldwide Jewish campus organization.
Weiss, who has led Cornell Hillel since July 2016, received the Richard M. Joel Exemplar of Excellence Award.
Weiss was honored for his work in growing Cornell Hillel. In just over three years, he has more than doubled the number of students that Hillel reaches, hired new staff, increased the organization’s budget and launched multiple initiatives that have transformed Jewish life at Cornell.
