Israel... New Perspectives

Judy Rieger, Tamar Sadeh and Liz Schonfeld, Co-Chairs

Mission: The mission of the Israel...New Perspectives Committee is to promote a more balanced, positive and authentic image of Israel in the greater Westchester/Fairfield community while promoting AJC’s global Jewish advocacy agenda. The committee provides programming which seeks to emphasize Israel’s remarkable achievements and creativity, particularly in the high tech, artistic and health care fields. The initiative began as a five-year program highlighted by annual galas which featured speakers in Israel’s diplomatic corps, Israel’s humanitarian efforts around the world, Israeli innovation, and Israeli culture and society.
