He is also Chairman of the Executive Council at UCSF; Chairman Emeritus of Weill Cornell Medical College; Chancellor's Advisory Board member at UC-Davis; Director of the Lang International Music Foundation; and American Academy of Arts and Sciences' member.

As President of Jujamcyn Theaters, Roth oversees Broadway productions including the Tony Award-winning musicals "The Book of Mormon," "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder," "Jersey Boys," and "Kinky Boots," and the upcoming "Something Rotten!" He is also Founder and CEO of Culturalist.com, a social network that encourages users to engage with cultural happenings through Top 10 lists. Additionally, Roth founded Givenik.com, a website that donates 5% of theatre ticket prices to select charities.

National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene will continue its 100th anniversary celebration with KulturfestNYC, a first-ever International Festival of Jewish Performing Arts in New York City from June 14-22, 2015 that will include hundreds of performances featuring artists all over the world in theatre, music, dance, food, lectures, family programs and cabaret, as well as films, a street and food festival and symposia.
