Is Matt Nosanchuk Jewish?

Matt Nosanchuk is Jewish. Nosanchuk was named the White House's Jewish Liaison by President Barack Obama in July 2013. His official title is associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement for Jewish Outreach.

He grew up in the Detroit area. His cousin is a Reform rabbi in Cleveland. He was previously the Justice Department's Gay Liaison.

Nosanchuk received his undergraduate and law degree from Stanford University and joined the Obama administration in 2009 as a senior counselor in the Justice Department’s civil rights division, where, according to JTA, he “helped shape the Obama administration’s response to a challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act.” He was awarded the inaugural Stonewall Award by the American Bar Association in February.

He’s also a longtime member of Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation in Bethesda, Maryland, which seems as good a place for liaising as any.
