Director of the Moishe Rosen Center
Shoshana Birnbaum, who came to faith in Yeshua (Jesus) in Mexico City, is named after two people: a Jews for Jesus missionary, Shoshannah, who shared Jesus with her father, and her grandmother, Rosa (both names mean “rose”). She studied industrial design, and was instrumental in designing and furnishing the Rosen Center, which she now leads. In her words, “The Rosen Center is an amazing space that has enabled us to bless our neighborhood and live out our faith in public, and as meaningful contributors to other people’s lives. We get to celebrate the creativity and freedom we have found in our relationship with God and make ourselves available to share the hope we have in Jesus. Our staff will continue to explore ways in which this space can be used in the lives of Jewish people to redeem, bring together, enrich, and enable—both spiritually and materially.”
Shoshana is a gifted leader and Bible teacher, and is passionate about helping young women live out their faith in Jesus. She is a mother to two boys and is married to Eli Birnbaum, the Israel director. Together they planted a church in the Florentin neighborhood in Tel Aviv. Shoshana speaks Spanish, Hebrew, and English.
