Phillip Brodsky
Executive director


Phillip Brodsky became Executive Director of The David Project in July of 2014 after serving four years as The David Project's Campus Director. As Campus Director, Phil oversaw the development and implementation of The David Project's new Israel advocacy strategy of Relational Advocacy. In that time, The David Project has grown its work from 12 campuses to 50 schools across the country and is now working with hundreds of Israel advocates who are reaching thousands of non-Jewish campus leaders. Phil joined The David Project in June 2010 after graduating from the Hornstein Heller Graduate Program at Brandeis University.

Phil believes that every student has the potential to make a difference for Israel and the world. A cornerstone of the programs and trainings that he has designed is teaching participants leadership and community building skills to be successful now and in the future. 

Before earning his MBA and Master's in Jewish Professional Leadership at Brandeis, Phil was the director of Jewish programming for Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity for three years. In that position, Phil taught student leaders how to organize successful philanthropic programs, bring Jewish enrichment programming into their chapters and talk about Israel within the fraternity and sorority community. 

Phil graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2005.
