Cornell Hillel Committee Application - Spring 2016

The application for Hillel committees is now live! Anyone can apply for this low-commitment way to get involved in shaping Jewish community life at Cornell!

Applications are due on Friday, January 29th, 2016 at 4 PM. There will be a mandatory organizational meeting on Thursday 2/4 at 5 PM. After that, a weekly meeting time will be set based on committee members' schedules.

If you have any questions about the application please contact Cornell Hillel President Aaron Mallenbaum (agm95).
