Wendy Rosov is the Founder and Principal of Rosov Consulting, LLC. For 25 years, she has served as a senior-level consultant to individual philanthropists, community and family foundations and Jewish communal nonprofit organizations throughout North America and in Israel. Her keen analytic skills, knowledge of all facets of Jewish education and identity-building sectors, as well as her expertise in research and evaluation techniques have made her a sought-after expert on program design and evaluation. Her outstanding teaching and coaching skills place her in great demand as a presenter of workshops and seminars for both professionals and volunteer leadership in the philanthropic and nonprofit sector.
Over the years, Wendy has worked as a senior advisor and strategist with an extensive array of community-based, regional, national, and international grantmaking and operating foundations and program providers, including the Jim Joseph Foundation, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Prizmah: Center for Jewish Day Schools, JDC Entwine, The Jewish Teen Education and Engagement Funder Collaborative, and numerous local Jewish Federations. With the opening of our office in Israel in 2015, Wendy and the team now work closely with the Government of Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs—for which Rosov Consulting serves as evaluation consultants, the Jewish Agency for Israel, Masa Israel Journey, Onward Israel, and others on a number of research, evaluation, and strategy consulting projects.
For over a decade prior to founding Rosov Consulting, Wendy served as a member of the senior staff at the Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA). Before joining JESNA, Wendy served as Associate Director of the Conference on Rabbinic Education. She taught for more than 15 years in all types and at all levels of Jewish formal and informal education and identity-building programs, giving her a deep "insider" understanding of both the content and context of these fields. Wendy holds a Ph.D. in Education from Stanford University, an MA in Jewish Education from the University of Judaism (now AJU), and a B.A. from Barnard College, Columbia University. Wendy is an alumna of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship Program.
