As Program Officer at ROI Community, Emily is responsible for evaluation and learning. In her role, she collects, analyzes and reports on data that informs ROI’s work.
Emily Bernstein made aliyah to Israel from Florida. Growing up in Florida's Reform Jewish community, where her interfaith family was welcomed, she developed a passion for Judaism and religious diversity. After making aliyah, she pursued a master's degree at Hebrew University in conflict research.
Emily’s professional career has put her at the center of the movement to foster a culture of pluralism and innovation in Jerusalem. She brings with her years of experience in writing, research, fundraising and development—skills she has honed through work with the Nir Barkat re-election campaign, Jerusalem Venture Partners, Ruach Hadasha (New Spirit) and the Shalom Hartman Institute, among other organizations and initiatives.
At ROI, she is excited to be a part of a stellar, creative team that empowers young adults to pursue their game-changing ideas for the Jewish and global future. Emily enjoys cooking for her friends, running, reading a good book and spending too much time having theological debates.
