Tzedek Chair

HI! My name is Marni Israel and I am excited to be this years Co-Tzedek chair. I am from Deerfield, IL and I am currently a freshman majoring in Social Work (ask me what I want to change my major to!) I got involved with Hillel since the day I came to campus and have been there almost everyday since then! When I am not at Hillel, you can find me at AEPHI, watching Netflix or spending time outside. Please reach out if you have ideas to improve our social action programming, or if you just want to chat!


Tzedek Chair

Hi! My name is Hannah Kramer and I am so excited to be this years Co-Tzedek chair. I am from Vernon Hills, IL. I am a freshman majoring in History and intend to minor in secondary education. I’ve been involved with Hillel literally since day one and I’m there all the time! If I’m not at Hillel you can probably find me either in class, my dorm room, or the AEPhi house. If you have any ideas to improve our social action programming or if you just want to chat, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me!


Hi, my name is Itamar Steiner, and I'm from Skokie, Illinois! I am a Freshman at the University of Illinois, and although I am currently undeclared, I intend to major in Political Science. After graduation, I want to work in the field of politics, and possibly get a law degree. Since I am a Freshman, all of this is subject to change, but for now, I am certainly ecstatic to be serving as your 2019 Hillel President! My interests outside of school include playing and watching many sports, exploring outdoor places, and doing face masks! Throughout my term, I want to share my interests with the Jewish community, and work with all students to build upon the strong Jewish culture on our campus. Please feel free to come talk to me, study with me, or beat me at a game of pool at some point this year! I can't wait to hear your ideas for how to make the Illini Hillel the best it can be!!! 


Vice President

Hey! My name is Daniel Dodinval and I’ll be serving as your 2019 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!

Jewish Education Chair

Hi! My name is Gail Schneiderman and I’m super excited to be the 2019 Jewish Education Chair! I am a freshman majoring in Graphic Design. I love hanging out at Hillel, studying here, and coming to all the fun events - especially on Shabbat. My interests include reading, art, long walks, and collecting inspirational quotes. I’m looking forward to a great year!


Israel Education Chair

Hi, I’m Tyler Schwarz, your 2019 Israel Education Committee Head. I’m from Glen Ellyn, Illinois and am currently a freshman studying Music Education. In my free time, I enjoy practicing viola, running, and hanging around Hillel. Although I knew absolutely nobody at Hillel at the beginning of the schoolyear, I started attending events which introduced me to a very strong and diverse Jewish community. 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.


Social Chair

Hi! I’m Mollie Kramer, and I’m your 2019 Social Programming Chair! I’m from Lincolnwood, Illinois, and I’m currently a freshman 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 social events at Hillel, I’m always free to talk!
