Interests: Philanthropy, Jewish innovation, social justice
Margalit C. Rosenthal is a third-year student in the NYU Wagner/Skirball MPA-MA in Hebrew and Judaic Studies program as a Jewish Foundation for Education of Women (JFEW) Fellow and past recipient of the Steinberg Scholarship. Originally from San Diego, Margalit spent a year in Israel on the Nativ College Leadership Program before graduating Phi Beta Kappa with a BA in English Language and Literature from University of Maryland. After working in cultural arts at the Washington DC Jewish Community Center, Margalit became interested in the planning and development of nonprofit strategy and came to NYU to learn more about management theory, program measurement and analysis, and how Jewish organizations are placed within the larger public sector. Margalit chose the MPA-MA program because of its diverse and committed student body, extracurricular programming, and the ability to apply classroom tools directly to the employment opportunities New York City offers. At NYU, she has been involved with the Jewish Wagner Professional Association and served as the coordinator for graduate student programming at the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life-Hillel NYU. Margalit currently combines her interests in philanthropy and innovation in separate projects at Joshua Venture Group and Slingshot Fund.
