The Hillel Student Board is a dedicated group of students who meet regularly to plan and organize Hillel programs. As a recognized student group at the University of Rhode Island, Hillel students elect student officers each year in the spring, but all students are invited to attend student planning meetings, to suggest programming ideas and to organize and run activities. If you would like get more involved or attend an upcoming meeting, please contact Student Board President, Sydney Root.

Jana Spiegel, Co-VP of Social Programming
Hi! My name is Jana and I am the Vice President of Social Programming at Hillel. I’m a Sophomore from Connecticut and my major is Elementary Education with English Second Language Certification. I love the beach, being involved at URI, and hanging out with family and friends. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and having fun at Hillel. I am very excited to help plan awesome events this year!
Kayla Shamayev, Co-VP of Social Programming
Sarah Margolin, VP of Social Action
Hi everyone! I’m Sarah Margolin and I’m the current Vice President of Social Action Programming. I’m a sophomore Classics major from Hillsdale, New Jersey. Classics isn’t really a big major here at URI, but it basically means that I study ancient civilizations. I’m also considering constructing a minor in Archaeology. It’s my first year on the Hillel Board and I’m so excited to be sharing this experience with my fellow board-members and all of you! I look forward to meeting you all this year and, hopefully, going on Birthright with some of you!
