Evan Rosenstock ‘11
Soon after graduating in 2011 with a masters in Global Affairs from the NYU School of Professional Studies, Evan Rosenstock began working at the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)—the world’s largest Jewish humanitarian assistance organization. JDC works in nearly 70 countries to alleviate hunger and hardship, rescue Jews in danger, create lasting connections to Jewish life, and provide immediate relief for victims of natural and man-made disasters.
Rosenstock joined the team of JDC Entwine—JDC’s young adult initiative—which has catalyzed a generation of young adults to take action on behalf of global Jewish and humanitarian needs. This mission is pursued through offering overseas volunteer programs, educational programming, and leadership opportunities.
With Entwine, Rosenstock has developed and led more than 20 weeklong trips to vulnerable overseas communities for groups of Jewish young adults, engaging the groups with hands-on service, Jewish learning, cultural immersion, and context education. Currently, as JDC Entwine’s budget director, he is responsible for the overall financial planning and management of the initiative, which engages thousands of young adults each year with the notion of global Jewish responsibility. Having spent extended periods of time living abroad prior to enrolling in NYUSPS, he is committed to educating others on the hardships facing communities around the world, and to the role of service as an agent for change.
Rosenstock also holds an undergraduate business degree from Emory University.
