Marley Kotler is serving her fourth year on the YLD Board. Marley grew up in Glencoe, IL and is currently living in the Gold Coast. She graduated from Indiana University in May 2006 with a B.A. in Elementary Education. Marley has been teaching for ten years and will be teaching at Bernard Zell Anshe Emet in the fall. A Jewish presence has always been important to her. When traveling on the 2013 YLD Israel Trip, Marley felt an instant connection with the country and knew when she came back she needed to nurture that love. Since then she dove into YLD and has never looked back. As a second year Board Member, she served as a Vice President on the Executive Committee where she oversaw the Mensches in Motion, Social Media, and Sport League committees. She is looking forward to this next year on the Board and intends to continue to deepen her commitment to the Chicagoland Jewish community. In her spare time she enjoys traveling, spinning, exploring the city's cuisine, and spending time with her family.
