NEW YORK – NCSY, the flagship youth movement of the Orthodox Union (OU), has named Rabbi Moshe Isenberg as the organization’s national director of major gifts. The appointment represents a return to the organization for Isenberg, who previously spent 16 years working for NCSY’s Midwest region culminating in serving as its executive director.
In this new role, Isenberg will be responsible for identifying and building relationships with new donors, as well as assisting in further working to expand the impact of current donors who believe in and feel passionately about the important work and mission of NCSY.
Since leaving the organization five years ago, Isenberg worked in the insurance industry.
“Rabbi Isenberg is an outstanding leader with strong contacts in our community and a thorough understanding of the needs NCSY has. His entrepreneurial spirit will enable us to reach donors with more compelling and unique opportunities for them to engage with us,” said NCSY International Director Rabbi Micah Greenland.
Isenberg earned his bachelor’s degree from the Hebrew Theological College in Skokie and his Master of Business Administration from Loyola University of Chicago. He earned his rabbinic ordination from Kollel Zichron Hanna in Jerusalem and resides in Chicago with his wife, Devora, and their three children.
Founded in 1898, the Orthodox Union, (OU), serves as the voice of American Orthodox Jewry, with over 400 congregations in its synagogue network. As the umbrella organization for American Orthodox Jewry, the OU is at the forefront of advocacy work on both state and federal levels, outreach to Jewish teens and young professionals through NCSY, Birthright Israel/Israel Free Spirit, Yachad and OU Press, among many other divisions and programs.
