Ed Rosenthal is the Executive Director and Campus Rabbi of the Suncoast Hillels, and brings with him a passion for Jewish life and spirituality, Israel and the Jewish People. Before coming to work for Hillel, Ed was a congregational rabbi in Auckland, New Zealand and Brownsville, Texas. He loves working with college students and came to Suncoast Hillels after serving as the executive director of Hillel at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York for eight years. Before that, he was the campus rabbi at Emory University in Atlanta for two years.
His greatest love is his family. Ed is an avid scuba diver and loves anything to do with the water.
He’s always happy to speak with students, parents, grandparents, alumni or anyone else who wants to see Jewish Student Life flourish on our Suncoast campuses.
