Rabbi Dr. Ari Lamm

“In our era, the Jewish People and the State of Israel are confronted with both deep challenges and unprecedented opportunities. I am excited for the Bnai Zion Foundation to play a strong leadership role in the years ahead as we transform Jewish history for the better.”

Prior to his new position at Bnai Zion, Dr. Lamm served as Special Advisor to the President of Yeshiva University where he oversaw all strategic initiatives emerge from the Office of the President.

Dr. Lamm’s academic credentials are extensive. He is formerly the William Fischman Resident Scholar at Manhattan’s Jewish Center.
