A Statement from Iowa Hillel at the University of Iowa

It pains us greatly to hear of the allegations against Mr. Weltman, as the safety of our students and community members is Hillel’s top priority.

Hillel International and Iowa Hillel took immediate action when we were made aware of the allegations by law enforcement, placing him on administrative leave. He is no longer an employee of Iowa Hillel and we are cooperating fully with the police investigation.

Hillel is here to support the Jewish community at the University of Iowa during this difficult time, and we urge any student who needs support to reach out to us or directly to University Counseling Services. For Hillel members who would like a community time to share reactions and who would like to learn more about support resources, we are also offering a group session for students at Hillel this Monday, the 16th from 5 pm - 6 pm with University of Iowa Counseling Services.
