Board of Trustees

We support Hillel because it enables today's Cornellians to have meaningful Jewish experiences. 

- David M. Cohen Chair Emeritus 

Cornell Hillel is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of alumni, parents, faculty, and students. Trustees are elected to three-year terms, make a significant financial contribution, and dedicate time to the organization by serving on committees and attending quarterly meetings in New York City and Ithaca. Each spring, new and returning Trustees are nominated and approved by the Board.
