Saluting The Presidents Conference

We note that the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations will be holding a dinner next week marking 50 years of peerless service to the Jewish community. The dinner will honor recent chairmen of the Presidents Conference as well as its indefatigable vice chairman, Malcolm Hoenlein, who has served in that capacity for more than 25 years and has become the public face of the organization.

The Presidents Conference has proven to be a no-nonsense, wholly professional, behind-the-scenes power and has emerged as key to such significant issues as advancing the special relationship between the United States and Israel; aiding endangered Jewish communities worldwide; and building support for Israel in the United Nations and around the world. It is also playing a leading role in mobilizing opposition to Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions.

The various Conference programs for addressing these and other issues are an impressive story of vision, proactive thinking and innovation. Thus, the Leadership Action Network provides timely information and background on issues affecting Israel to over 350 pro-Israel organizations and individuals and reaches a network of more than seven million subscribers.

America’s Voices in Israel arranges visits to Israel for entertainment and media personalities, opinion molders and influential diplomatic, ethnic and religious leaders.

The Lawfare Project works to combat the growing use of the law as a weapon of war against Israel and the United States by mobilizing government officials and legal experts.

The Secure Community Network, as its name suggests, works closely with law enforcement to coordinate information sharing and security policies in order to promote security for American Jewish communal institutions and communities across the country.

The Daily Alert is an electronic daily briefing on essential news and analyses about Israel, the Middle East Iran and other key issues. It reaches hundreds of thousands of readers around the world, including government leaders and key policy makers.

We salute the Conference leadership, past and present, and the 49 major Jewish organizations that constitute is membership. Those member organizations are politically and religiously diverse but have nevertheless joined together to promote our community’s common goals.
