Callie Rosenfeld, a student at the University of Pittsburgh, is one of nine recipients of the BBYO Community Engagement Fellowship. 

As a CEF Rosenfeld will organize BBYO alumni events and initiate projects with partner organizations to maintain a thriving BBYO alumni community and enhance Jewish life on campus.  This fellowship is made possible in part through a grant from the Morningstar Foundation of Bethesda, Md.

“I wanted to be a CEF because I love what BBYO did for me,” Rosenfeld said in a prepared statement. “After working at ILTC (International Leadership Training Conference) and Kallah (a BBYO program featuring seminars with prominent Jewish leaders to help youth find their Jewish identities) this past summer, I knew that there was still more I could do for BBYO and more that it could do for me.  This Fellowship is the perfect way to continue this relationship.”

Rosenfeld will have professional development opportunities through participation in communitywide events such as the AIPAC Policy Conference and the JFNA General Assembly.  Additionally, she will participate in an alumni mentorship program and staff BBYO’s Summer Experiences in the U.S., Israel and all over the world.

“The Fellowship program engages BBYO’s most talented young alumni in creating networks of their peers that will both participate in and initiate Jewish activities on campus,” said Matthew Grossman, BBYO’s executive director, in a prepared statement.

“We are confident that Callie will help leverage the BBYO alumni community to strengthen Jewish life at the University of Pittsburgh.”
