Anna Shabelman – President

My name is Anna Shabelman and I am currently a Junior at Glenbrook South High School. I have served on the JeTY Board as President for the past two years and have been involved in Feed the Hungry, Backpack Blessings, and Family Promise at Temple Jeremiah. I participate in Onward House, a program to help tutor inner-city kids, and as a mentor at Special Gifts Theatre, a theatre program for kids and teens with special needs. I have a strong passion for social action, especially within the special needs community. I would love the opportunity to serve as President for a third year to help make JeTY even bigger and better.

I volunteer every chance that I get and love to stay active with a busy schedule. I have volunteered as a Teen Chaperone at numerous Jr. JeTY and Club 345 events and have been an active member in JeTY this year. I am part of multiple volunteer clubs at Stevenson and I am always trying to give back to the community.

My name is Taylor Chaiken and I am a Sophomore at Deerfield High School. At school, I participate in lacrosse, cross country, and student council. I am also involved with JeTY at Temple Jeremiah. I love to hang out with friends, shop, and go to Lake of the Woods over the summer. I love being involved within the Jewish community and helping others. I am super creative, friendly, and put 100% into everything I do. I really think that I have what it takes to be on the JeTY board, and am willing to put in all of the time and commitment necessary.


Sloan Greenfield – Social Action Vice President

My name is Sloan Greenfield, I’m currently in 8th Grade at Maple School, and I will be attending Glenbrook South High School next year. I enjoy singing, acting, playing the guitar, hanging out with my friends, and volunteering. Jeremiah has been such a big part of my life for the past eight years. Jeremiah has let me meet some of my closest friends today, and it has helped me find my Jewish identity. I am very excited to be a member of JeTY next year!

My name is Brie and I am a Sophomore at Glenbrook North High School. I love working in groups and enjoy leadership opportunities. I participate in dance and cheer outside of my academics. I am a teacher aid (Madricha) at Temple Jeremiah and at the preschool inside of GBN.

I am a Madricha, a volunteer for Family Promise, and will be a teen leader for the Temple Jeremiah’s first service trip to Costa Rica. I’m a very outgoing person that loves to be with and help people. I also love to spend time with my friends and family.


Maddie Murokh – Marketing and Communications Vice President

Hi! My name is Maddie Murokh and I am currently a Freshman at Glenbrook South High School. I have been a part of Temple Jeremiah since I was eight years old.  One of the first events I participated in through Temple Jeremiah was OSRUI summer camp. From the first “try it” session with Dr. Lidsky, to my latest adventure in Chalutzim this summer! Being a part of the Temple Jeremiah has nurtured my growth from a little girl just starting her Religious School classes until now, a Freshman, in High School. Each activity or event, whether big or small, has challenged me. Although I may not have recognized I was being challenged at the time, my maturity and Jewish identity have been made stronger because of it.


Sloane Shabelman – Freshmen Representative

My name is Sloane Shabelman and I’m currently an 8th Grader at Maple School in Northbrook. I live in Glenview with my parents, older sister, and my dog Boomer, and next year I’ll be attending Glenbrook South. In my free time I love to act and be in/see musicals, play softball, and spend time with my family and friends. I can’t wait to be a part of JeTY for the first time this year and I look forward to hopefully being on the board!


Leo Van Every – General Board Member

My name is Leo Van Every and I am a Junior at Deerfield High School. I am an Honor Roll student, and a member of the Deerfield High School Honor Society. I have participated in several extra-curricular activities including baseball, basketball, and golf. I am an older brother to Ian and Ava.
