Magda Dorosz was born in 1984 in Wroclaw, Poland and now lives in Warsaw, the country's capitol. She graduated from the University of Wroclaw and received an M.A. in public administration. During university, she spent a year working and traveling in South Africa. Magda has participated in Taglit Birthright Israel and MiNYanim project for Young Jewish Leaders and because of their influence, became the Coordinator of Taglit and Masa in Poland.
As a Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) coordinator in Poland, Magda focuses on the younger generation - Poland’s Jewish future. She organizes trips to Israel as well as other educational projects in Poland. This includes outreach to all the Jewish organizations in Poland to find potential participants. Often, this is very difficult, as there are many people with no knowledge about their Jewish heritage or Jewish culture, religion and history. As such, it is up to Magda to teach them about the Jewish history and to enrich their Jewish identity. She reaches the goal through educational, cultural and historical seminars and projects to help build their Jewish identity.
Through her involvement in the local Jewish community, she was offered the position of Executive Director of the Jewish Community of Wroclaw. A position that she held from 2012 to 2015, where she was responsible for managing the office, creating and developing educational and cultural programs for the Community's members.
While working for her local community and pursuing her professional dream of bringing together Polish Jews and the worldwide community, Magda together with her coworkers, in 2015 established Chidusz Jewish Foundation, dedicated to educating and promoting cooperation between Poles and Polish Jews, as well as bringing the Polish Jewish community closer to Jewish communities throughout the world. This goal is achieved through publishing a monthly magazine - Chidusz.
In January 2016 Magda assumed the position of Executive Director of Hillel Warsaw, building the international organization branch in Poland. This new opportunity allows Magda to further her passion and professional goals while working to build and strenghten Jewish identity of young adults of Warsaw and Poland.
In her free time, Magda enjoys traveling, skiing and reading books about the Middle East.
