Rabbi David Rosenn, Executive Vice President at the New Israel Fund, leads NIF’s operations in North America and works with NIF’s Board and senior staff to set and execute strategy for the organization overall. Prior to joining NIF, David served for 13 years as the founder and Executive Director at AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps. David was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary in 1997. He believes social change is inspired and sustained when people feel themselves to be members of communities of moral courage and spiritual strength, and his work is centered around efforts to build, encourage and sustain Jewish participation in such communities.
