Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently said that those who fund boycotts against Israel must be exposed. As Netanyahu explained, “We must not cave into the pressure, expose the lies and attack the attackers.”
The New Israel Fund, which sends $30 million annually to Israel – and openly supports a boycott of Israel — was a major funder of the recent report at the United Nations which condemned the Israel Defense Forces as war criminals. The NIF is generally anti-Israel. We stand with the government of Israel – and today are exposing more of those who support the NIF financially – hence allowing boycott against Israel to spread.
We plan to continue to urge all who fund NIF and help harm Israel to stop. Some of these Jews may seek to “help” Israel – and even do other good things in the Jewish community. Funding the New Israel Fund offsets everything else — they are enemies of the State of Israel, as the government today openly says. Stop supporting enemies of Israel. Here is the latest group:
— SAR Academy in the Riverdale section of the Bronx is widely regarded as one of the most well-respected Modern Orthodox schools in the tri-State area. Unfortunately, a major board member, Eric Dobkin is Treasurer of SAR, and the Eric Dobkin & Barbara Dobkin Foundation is a 6-figure donor to the New Israel Fund.
— Ezra G. Levin of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel is a key board member of The Jewish Communal Fund who allows MILLIONS to be sent to The New Israel Fund. Interestingly, Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel has an Israel practice – great concept… on one hand help fund a boycott, and on the others have “Kramer Levin’s Israel practice and partners Richard H. Gilden and Ernest S. Wechsler” pitch Israeli business.
n–The Russell Berrie Foundation: RBF are major donors to the New Israel Fund. Shamefully, the board members of RBF include Ruth Salzman, Norman Seiden of Tenafly, and Ilan Kaufthal.
— Arnold Hiatt: Arnold Hiatt is the founder of Stride Rite shoes. Shamefully, he is also a major supporter of the New Israel Fund, and a longtime board member of J Street.
Others deserving of shame for major gifts to NIF include: The Lopatin Family Foundation, The Louis J. Kuriansky Foundation, Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches, Lisa Minsky-Primus & Yaron Minsky.
We have more coming over next few days.
