Hillel students, campuses and professionals received a raft of awards at the AIPAC annual Policy Conference in late May.
"The value, we believe, in singling out the most impressive activists behind the most dramatic successes is simply to recalibrate the standards by which all future activists will measure themselves in the year ahead," said Brian Jaffee, AIPAC deputy leadership development director.
The Hillel award winners were:
Allies of the Year (Hillel professionals)
Rabbi David Kessel, University of Texas Hillel Foundation Executive Director
Rabbi Ed Rosenthal, Cornell University Hillel Executive Director
Ari Dubin, Duke University Hillel
Activists of the Year (campuses)
University of California, San Diego
Washington University (St. Louis)
Michigan State University
Duke Rudman Award (campus)
Advocate of the Year (students)
Trevor Morton, Tulane
