Rosenne Has a New Post

Meir Rosenne, who recently ended his term as Ambassador to the U.S., has taken up a post as top fund-raiser for the Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem. His title is chairman of international relations for the hospital.

Some political observers believe Rosenne hopes to receive another senior political appointment if the Likud returns to power after the next elections. His political outlook is closer to Likud than to Labor, and his postings as Ambassador to Paris and then to Washington were advocated by senior Likud leaders.

Rosenne, 56, is a professional diplomat and served as legal adviser to the Foreign Ministry before his Paris appointment seven years ago.
