Emily Rothstein joined The iCenter team in July 2019 after completing a dual-degree master's in Jewish Nonprofit Management from HUC-JIR and Public Administration from the University of Southern California, as a Nachshon Project Graduate Fellow. Emily spent her summers at URJ OSRUI, where at a young age, Israel became a very important part of her identity. After obtaining her BS in Community and Nonprofit Leadership from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Emily moved to Los Angeles where she served as the LA Teen Coordinator for Challah for Hunger. During her graduate studies, she worked as an Advocacy and Community Engagement Intern at NCJW/LA and a Development Intern at MAZON. Emily focuses on development and internal operations as part of The iCenter team, and is thrilled to be putting Israel at the forefront of her work.
What are you happiest doing outside of work?
I am happiest when surrounded by friends exploring Chicago, checking out a new restaurant, or finding a nice patio to enjoy the sun (when it’s not freezing out). When at home, you can find me watching the latest trending TV show, riding with my favorite Peloton instructors, hosting friends (when not in a global pandemic), or rooting on all things Wisconsin Badgers.
