Meet this year's

Student Board



Hi! I’m Mollie Kramer, and I’m your 2020 President! I’m from Lincolnwood, Illinois, and I’m currently a sophomore studying psychology. I got involved with Hillel the summer before my freshman year and have been active ever since. If you ever have questions or ideas related to Hillel, I’m always free to talk!


Vice President

Hey! My name is Daniel Dodinval and I’ll be serving as your 2020 Executive Vice President. I’m from Wilmette, Illinois, and I’m a sophomore. I'm currently undeclared, looking to study education. Hillel has been my Jewish home on campus since the beginning of my freshman year, and I love coming over for events, services, or just to hang out or do homework. When I’m not at Hillel, I like cooking and baking, reading, biking, and anything outdoors. I’m looking forward to an amazing year!

Hi! My name is Gail Schneiderman and I’m super excited to be the 2020 Jewish Education Chair! I am a sophomore majoring in Graphic Design. I love hanging out and studying at Hillel and coming to all the fun events. I’m looking forward to a great year!

Hi, I’m Tyler Schwarz, your 2020 Israel Education Committee Chair. I’m from Glen Ellyn, Illinois and am currently a sophomore studying Biochemistry. In my free time, I enjoy practicing viola, running, learning torah, and hanging around Hillel. If there is one thing I’ve learned about Hillel, it’s that there is a place for everyone here, so if you want to get involved in any sense or have any questions related to Israel or otherwise, I would love to chat.

Tzedek/Social Justice Chair

Social Chair

Hey there! I’m Rachel Kaufman, your 2020 Tzedek/Social Justice Chair. I’m from Skokie, Illinois and currently a junior studying social work. I’m passionate about empowering others to use nuance, societal dynamics, and commitment to jewish values to address the various social issues affecting our world today.  For fun, I enjoy doing karaoke with friends, watching stand-up comedy, going to the movies, hiking, backpacking, watching documentaries, writing personal narratives, growing plants, running while listening to motivational speakers, going to concerts at small music venues, and exploring new places by bike. I’m looking forward to a year of optimistically working towards repairing our messy world!

Hey! My name is Rebecca Friedman and I am thrilled to be the 2020 Social Chair. I am a Freshman from Skokie, Illinois and I am currently majoring in Psychology. Hillel was one of the first places I visited here on campus and has instantly become a second home to me. I love meeting new people and making new friends. I enjoy traveling, hiking, playing the piano and photography. Being part of a strong community is important to me and I hope to make this year filled with lots of fun and excitement.
