Program will take place at Wisconsin Club, 900 W. Wisconsin Avenue, $25, including appetizers and cash bar. Please contact the Cream City Foundation to reserve your place.
Paul Fairchild, President & CEO of the Cream City Foundation comments, “We are honored to have Ms. Rosenthal as our guest to bring anti-Semitism and LGBT Human Rights into the forefront of our contemporaneous conversation in the Milwaukee community.”
Hannah Rosenthal was sworn in as Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism on November 23, 2009. Sparked by the work and experience of her father, a rabbi and Holocaust survivor, and her own experience studying to become a rabbi, Hannah Rosenthal has led a life marked by activism and a passion for social justice.
Jim Schleif, President of Cream City Foundation Board of Directors, adds, “This event brings to light the need for all communities that experience discrimination to band together. If any one of us is diminished in realizing our full human potential, we all suffer as a society.”
Before joining the State Department, Ms. Rosenthal was Executive Director of the Chicago Foundation for Women, where she led one of the largest women’s funds in the world. Prior to that, she was Executive Director of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs for five years, where she worked on domestic and international policy for the organized Jewish community in North America.
Ms. Rosenthal served as Midwest regional director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services during the Clinton Administration. She was involved in community organizing, and the antiwar and civil rights movements in the 1960s.
Ms. Rosenthal attended graduate school for rabbinical studies at Hebrew Union College in Jerusalem and Los Angeles, and holds a bachelor’s degree in religion from the University of Wisconsin.
