Roz Rothstein

CEO of StandWithUs

Roz Rothstein is CEO of StandWithUS, a global operation founded in 2001 that works to oppose the delegitimization of Israel and train young people to advocate for the Jewish state.

The Los Angeles-based group also manages a campus program and has specifically fought the BDS movement. “The [BDS] movement, while being anti-Israel, is not pro-peace or even pro-Palestinian,” she has said. “Its goals, if achieved, would leave Palestinians impoverished.”

She co-authored a piece earlier this year in which she stated that Israel’s campus detractors will fail. “The answer to this long-evident attempt to intimidate and muzzle pro-Israel campus voices is to increase already flourishing pro-Israel programming,” she wrote. “The response to hateful disruptions will be more pro-Israel events.”

    For a long time I wondered what it would have been like to meet the pioneers and the Machalniks who were present at the founding of modern Israel. Meeting Roz is a the closest I ever got to it. It’s been a privilege knowing her.

    Well done wonderful Roz! I don’t feel in England we support Israel enough.when I was young,a long time ,Jews seemed separate and therefore deemed unsociable but things have changed.Perhaps with more understanding we will help more?

    You are a smart woman. I agree with you. The timelessness of Purim is that dictators like Aminijab will be defeated!!! Love the new nuclear submarine given to Isarel from Germany. I hope we all thank them. Waiting for a aircraft carrier or two to show up as part of the Isareli navy too. ISAREL HAS THE PERFECT RIGHT TO BE THERE! ANY ONE WHO READS ANY JEWISH PRAYER IT SAYS ‘RETURN OUR PRESCENCE BACK TO ZION” I would be very tough with Iran AND LET THEM KNOW THE USA AND ISAREL HAS THE POWER TO NUKE OUT TEHRAN AND MECCA IF THEY DONT CALM DOWN . ALL RELIGIONS CO EXIST. START ANY NEGOTION FROM A POSITION OF STRENGTH!!!
