As a familiar face to many in the Jewish community, Debbie recently served as the Northern Ohio Regional Director of Jewish National Fund (JNF). In her last nine years there, she significantly increased the number of overall donors and dollars raised for the state of Israel. She is well-regarded for the high visibility events she planned honoring prestigious community leaders. Prior to JNF, she served as development director at Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple and director of membership and marketing at the Mandel Jewish Community Center.
“We are fortunate to have Debbie join the Montefiore family,” says Lauren Rock, president and CEO. “Debbie’s outstanding fundraising background will help the Foundation secure Montefiore’s future.” Debbie brings expertise in making compelling cases for giving, special event planning, building donor relationships, strategic planning and community outreach. She applies sincere passion and personal integrity to linking donor wishes with important organizational needs.
“I appreciate the opportunity to work with one of the area’s premier senior healthcare organizations and look forward to making significant strides,” said Rothschild. A native Clevelander, Debbie earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts degree from Kent State University. She and her family are members of B’nai Jeshurun Congregation and reside in Solon, Ohio.
