Rabbi Steven Weil
Sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Henry and Mindy Orlinsky
Rabbi Steven Weil is Senior Managing Director of the Orthodox Union. As the son of German “fie handlers”, he grew up on a cattle farm in Upstate New York. His love for learning began early, and as a teenager he prevailed upon his parents to send him away to Yeshiva. He continued his education at Kerem B’Yavneh and Yeshiva University, concurrently completing his ordination at the Rabbeinu Yitzchak Elchanan Theological Seminary and a Masters in Business Administration from NYU’s Stern School of Business. Rabbi Weil began his career teaching, and then began pulpit work; first at the Young Israel of Oak Park, Michigan and then at Beth Jacob Congregation in Beverly Hills, California. In both positions, Rabbi Weil significantly expanded the synagogue’s membership and programming and was involved in serving the needs of the greater community as well. Rabbi Weil serves the OU as ambassador and scholar in residence across the country and is a prodigious and prolific fundraiser and scholar.
