Since the former JSO President ..., 5 Dec 2009 [cached]
Since the former JSO President Lauren Fredman is graduating this December, JSO held elections again this year to elect a new president, JSO Executive Director Kerry Hollander said.
Hollander, who has worked with JSO since 1984, said the students lead the organization and make the decisions themselves, and she supports them and provides any requested guidance. A successful JSO board member puts the group's needs first and is responsible, creative and inclusive, Hollander said.
"I have been privileged to work with many different persons who have a variety of skills and strengths," Hollander said.

Between 52nd Street and Paseo Boulevard and 54th Street and Charlotte, Kerry Hollander grew up in a Catholic neighborhood in Kansas City - though her life and home were centered around Judaism, and the synagogue was just 20 blocks away.
Hollander's sense of Jewish identity began in the bottom level of a two-bedroom duplex that housed six people.There, her childhood consisted of Jewish rituals, Friday night Sabbath dinners and Hebrew school - the beginnings of a life cycle permeated by Judaism.
Now, decades later and 125 miles away, Hollander still centers her life around Judaism as the executive director at the Hillel Foundation, MU's Jewish student center and part of a national network of campus centers.Hollander, 58, said she feels tremendous responsibility toward keeping the Jewish identity alive among students.
She first came to MU and Columbia in 1963 - a turning point in her life when she decided to go to college away from home.She wanted to be an elementary school teacher.Her father had not wanted her to leave home because, in the neighborhood in which she grew up, young women were supposed to stay with their families until marriage.Hollander was the first woman in her family to pursue a college degree.
In her first year at school, she met her future husband, Ed Hollander.In 1967, they were married in Kansas City and then moved to St. Louis, where she taught school for a number of years, until they started a family.
"When I was an underclassman, I found that a lot of people had never met a Jewish person in their entire lives, and they would ask me lots of questions and I could answer a lot of them, but there were many that I couldn't, so Kerry and the library here provided a good resource."
Religious Matters - Columbia Missourian, 8 Feb 2004 [cached]
Kerry Hollander, executive director at the Hillel Foundation, MU's Jewish student center, said that within the center, there are as many political opinions as there are people.She does not think it is the job of a religious institution to direct people's political decisions.
Jews, Catholics more likely to be Democrats
Although according to the Pew Research Center, most Jewish people are Democrats, Hollander said that seems to be changing, which "might reflect changing economic status more than differing religious beliefs."An exit poll conducted by Beliefnet after the 2000 presidential election indicated that 81 percent of Jews voted Democratic.
The Rev. Michael Burt, who leads the conservative Baptist Grace Bible Church, said that as a pastor, he will "tell someone something is right or wrong according to Scripture" but does not endorse a candidate or platform.
