JCF Board Members Sidney Lapidus, Ezra G. Levin of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel, Terri Herenstein Actively Funding Israel’s Enemies


The Jewish Communal Fund (JCF) manages 1.3 billion dollars in assets – and gave many millions of dollars to the New Israel Fund (NIF) in recent years. They choose to stand with boycotts of Israel and the United Nations that issues a blood libel against Israel, rather than supporting the Jewish State.

They even don’t obey the policies of their organizations’ policies handbook, which reveals that  the Jewish Communal Fund is “committed to supporting causes that promote the welfare and security of the Jewish community here and abroad. Consequently, as part of the grant review process, the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Communal Fund retains the right to deny any grant request where the purposes and activities of the recommended charitable organization are deemed to be adverse to the interests of the Jewish community.”

In light of the United Nations report which accuses Israel of war crimes, across the political spectrum in Israel, the United Nations report was condemned – noting its purpose was simple – to undermine Israel’s right to defend its citizens from attack.  Yet, Jewish Communal Fund refuses to stop funding the NIF – and a UN report which is surely “..adverse to the interests of the Jewish community.”

Israel’s Education Minister Naftali Bennett noted that the UN report “..has blood on its hands [for] allowing the murder of Jews.”  MK Tzipi Livni said the report  was “born in sin by a committee that systematically and proactively attacks Israel.” Livni added, “We will not accept a comparison between IDF soldiers and terrorists. We will not agree to speak about IDF soldiers and terrorists in the same breath. This is an important distinction for any country fighting terrorism.”

Information from this UN report was provided by organizations funded by New Israel Fund (NIF), including B’Tselem (69 mentions in the report), Human Rights Watch (22 mentions), Physicians For Human Rights-Israel (16), Hamoked (12), Breaking The Silence (8), Adalah (8), and Yesh Din (5.). Hence, the Jewish Communal Fund is actively collaborating with Israel’s enemies. 

The Jewish Communal Fund continues giving millions to New Israel Fund.  The board members of JCF must be pressured – and we say shame on Karen R. Adler, Noel J. Spiegel, Sidney Lapidus, Ezra G. Levin of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP, Suzanne Denbo Jaffe, Cindy Golub, Alisa Doctoroff, Leslie Fastenberg, Terri Herenstein, Michael Lustig, Jenny Lyss, Beth Goldberg Nash, Suzanne Peck, David Z. Solomon, Andrew Sommers, Noel J. Spiegel and all the board members of Jewish Communal Fund who lend strength to Israel’s enemies.

We have a series of events planned in summer and fall to further expose those who collaborate with the enemy by funding New Israel Fund.
