New York, NY – Repair the World welcomes Cheryl Weiner Rosenberg to their team as senior director of marketing and communications. Repair mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world, igniting a lifelong commitment to service. This addition to the team is part of a strategic growth plan for the organization to inspire and catalyze one million acts of service towards repairing the world by 2026.
“We are thrilled to welcome Cheryl to the team,” says Kate O’Bannon, Chief Strategy Officer of Repair the World. “Her experience and expertise will be key as we expand into more cities while also elevating our national initiatives across the country. The Jewish service movement is at an exciting inflection point with more young adults engaging in Jewish life through meaningful service experiences. Cheryl’s experience and knowledge will ensure strength and consistency in our brand and outreach to enable Repair to meet our goal of one million acts of service by 2026.”
Repair the World is dedicated to mobilizing Jews and their communities to take action in pursuit of a just world by mobilizing tens of thousands of young adults to serve in their communities, catalyzing Jewish communal organizations to get their communities volunteering, and inspiring people to take action through national service campaigns. Experiences where young adults can serve, learn, and connect are proven to be meaningful ways to engage in Jewish life and build connections with peers. In addition to connecting Jewish young adults to service as an expression of their Jewish values, Repair activates the field to build capacity for local and national partners to fulfill their missions.
Rosenberg says, “Being raised Jewish and understanding the value of repairing the world (tikkun olam), pursuit of justice (tzedek) has driven my life decisions. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to live these values not only in my personal life, but now also in my professional life. I am excited to be part of this growing organization, and I look forward to partnering with the Repair team to continue to strengthen and expand our work and fulfill our mission.”
