About Me
Roz Rothstein is the co-founder and CEO of StandWithUs, an Israel education organization founded in 2001 which now has 18 offices in the US, Canada, Israel, the UK and Paris. The daughter of Holocaust survivors, Rothstein and her husband Jerry, together with lay leaders such as StandWithUs President Esther Renzer, sought to share the inspiring story of modern Israel with the world, and educate the public about Israel’s achievements and challenges. StandWithUs’ goal is to empower Israel’s supporters globally to be Israel-educators by providing them with training, innovative educational materials, and programs. Prior to founding StandWithUs, Roz spent two decades as a family therapist, licensed in the state of California.  She also worked as the director of family programs at the Westside Jewish Community center and has served on a variety of boards in the Los Angeles area.    StandWithUs has become a leader of Israel advocacy in social media, effective print materials, conferences, and in mobilizing young adults in high school and college who want to educate their campuses about Israel. StandWithUs has also become a leader in organizing missions and conferences in Israel that bring international participants. Rothstein has authored multiple articles and spoken to groups around the world.  In 2007 and then again in 2012, the Forward named Rothstein one of America's 50 most influential Jews, and in 2011, the Jerusalem Post listed her as number 29 of the 50 most influential Jews in the world.
