Today is May 29, 2017 /


The daily operations of the Roth Center are kept running by two dedicated employees. Whenever possible, questions about practical operations at the Roth Center should be directed to the staff rather than to the rabbi. You can find more details about who to contact with your questions and how below.

Carole Clarke

Carole  Clarke

Claudia Palmer

Claudia Palmer

Rabbi’s Office Manager and Administrative Assistant

Claudia first came to the Roth Center in the fall of 1999. Since then she has come to understand more about kosher food, Jewish holidays and traditions. In this position, it is the people that she has come to love and cherish throughout these years that mean the most. Families, Dartmouth students and everyone in-between have enriched her life more than she can express.

Contact Claudia with Hillel-related matters, or to schedule an appointment with Rabbi, by email at or by phone at (603) 646-0410.


Madeline Cooper

Director of Education

Madeline began teaching at the UVJC Hebrew School in 2012, and is thrilled to be serving as the Director of Education for the 5777 school year.  She is particularly passionate about working with students, Jewish education, and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).  Next year, Madeline will begin Rabbinical School at Hebrew Union College, where she will begin her first year of study in Jerusalem.

Contact Madeline with questions about the UVJC Hebrew School, Family Education, or the B’nai Mitzvah process by email at or by phone at (603) 646-3887.



Maia is the official UVJC/Hillel dog. She is in charge of such important tasks as guarding Claudia’s office and greeting congregants with great ruach. Maia is friendly, well-behaved, and good with kids, so if you see her at the Roth Center, don’t hesitate to say hello. Maia loves to play tug-of-war with her chew toys, to receive belly rubs, and to be told that she is a good dog. Contact Maia by calling her name or by walking up to her and giving her a rub between the ears.
