Blake Roter has a knack for getting others involved in the causes, programs and organizations he cares about. He's brought people together to raise awareness for improving child literacy, fighting anti-Semitism and promoting Jewish culture.
For Blake, it all begins with a strong Jewish identity and values. They have always guided how he gives his time and fueled the passion with which he promotes -- and drives -- attendance to Jewish events and programs. Currently, Blake is a member of the ADL Regional Board and Civil Rights Executive Committee, Reading in Motion Auxiliary Board, Standard Club Membership Committee and Alpha Epsilon Pi Chicago Alumni Club.
Blake is also big on Jewish leadership opportunities. He's participated in and/or led ADL's Glass Leadership Institute, a Shorashim Birthright Israel trip, Germany Close Up, JUF's LEADS and Gesher programs, and is a team captain in the YLD Softball League.
