A New Adventure, A Timeless Mission: Hello From the RFC’s New Granting Coordinator

Submitted by Rachel Harb on Wed, 09/28/2022 - 14:38

One of my mother’s earliest childhood memories is hearing one name repeated over and over in conversations around her: “Rosenberg.” It’s no surprise that my mom grew up constantly aware of the horrors of the Rosenberg case. She was raised in a Jewish community in New York City at the time of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg’s trial and execution. Her parents - my grandparents - were the same age as the Rosenbergs.

My two years at the Rosenberg Fund for Children as the Granting Coordinator have sadly come to an end, as I will be moving to Spain to teach English for the year. I am beyond grateful for this experience and for all of the people I have gotten to work with during my time at the RFC.

“Pass the Mic” summer camp a labor of love for RFC families

Fifteen years ago (Saturday, July 23rd) was my first day of work at the RFC. I came onboard as the granting coordinator, supporting beneficiary families in applying for and utilizing grants for their children. It’s hard to believe that was a decade and a half ago; this is by far the longest I’ve ever spent at a job and I have no plans to leave any time soon.
