Sinai Health Care Foundation, and The Cleveland State University Foundation.
Rosenberg has served as an advisor to University Hospitals during some of the most transformative moments in the organization’s history, including the development of UH Ahjua Medical Center. She currently serves on the UH Ahjua Medical Center Board and is chair of the UH Volunteer Leadership Program.
She is a past vice chair of both Federation’s board of trustees and the Campaign for Jewish Needs. She also served as chair of Federation’s Community Planning Committee and worked on the committee’s efforts to develop the 2011 Greater Cleveland Jewish Population Study, which is used both locally and nationally.
