Democratic Majority for Israel is proud to announce the election of Michael Rosenzweig to its Board of Directors. A distinguished lawyer, academic, and nonprofit leader, Rosenzweig brings a wealth of experience in law, education, and Jewish communal service to the organization.

Michael’s distinguished career includes notable achievements in both the legal field and the nonprofit sector.

A summa cum laude graduate of the University of Michigan and a James Kent Scholar at Columbia Law School, Rosenzweig’s early career saw him clerking for the United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, practicing law, and contributing significantly to legal academia as a member of the faculty of the University of Michigan Law School.

His transition to the nonprofit world was marked by successful leadership roles as CEO of Hands On Atlanta, the National Museum of American Jewish History, and the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, among other roles, both lay and professional.

“Michael’s unique blend of legal expertise, academic distinction, and nonprofit leadership make him an invaluable addition to our Board,” said Mark Mellman, President & CEO of Democratic Majority for Israel. “His dedication to advancing the causes of democracy, education, and the pro-Israel community aligns perfectly with our mission, and we are thrilled to welcome him aboard.”

Board co-chair Ann Lewis commented, “Michael’s record of service and achievement speaks to his profound commitment to our core values. His leadership in the nonprofit sector, particularly in fostering Jewish education and community, will be a great addition to our board’s expertise and insight.”

Board co-chair Todd Richman added, “Michael Rosenzweig’s vast experience and passionate advocacy for pro-Israel causes will be a tremendous asset to our organization. We are excited to have him join our efforts in strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship and promoting our shared democratic values.”

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Rosenzweig has made significant contributions to Jewish education and the broader community. As a co-founder and the founding chair and president of the Weber School in Atlanta, he played a pivotal role in establishing one of the nation’s first transdenominational Jewish day high schools. His work as a consultant to nonprofits further underscores his commitment to effective leadership, financial sustainability, and purpose driven advocacy.
