The founder of The Israel Project has decided to stay on as its president.
Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi will remain in her post, the organization announced this week, after saying three months that she would be stepping down in April.
The Israel Project educates Americans about Israel and promotes security and peace.
“In a world of 24/7 news cycles, balancing the needs of a mission-driven non-profit with family can be very difficult,â€ Mizrahi said. â€œI am delighted that TIP is committed to providing its team with the understanding and resources needed so it can best meet its goals. I look forward to continuing with an exciting team that is devoted to the survival of Israel and our global Jewish family.”
The Israel Project also announced that five U.S. senators and one member of Congress have joined its board of directors. They are Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Gordon Smith (R-Ore.), Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) and Susan Collins (R-Me.), and Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.).
