BACKGROUND

Israel Policy Forum is an educational and policy organization working to shape the discourse and mobilize support among American Jewish leaders and U.S. policymakers for the realization of a viable two-state solution consistent with Israel's security. We do this by educating political and communal leaders on pragmatic policy ideas to improve Israel’s security while maintaining conditions for an eventual two-state solution, and by building consensus in the policy and Jewish communities for these visions and goals. We envision a Jewish, democratic, and secure Israel, and support a strong and enduring U.S.-Israel relationship.

The DEA’s primary responsibilities will focus on managing ongoing donor engagement and logistics for in-person and virtual fundraising and cultivation events both in New York and in key communities across the U.S. (e.g. Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Florida, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Washington, DC, and others). In 2022, we are planning for two in-person benefit events with 75-200 attendees, 12-15 small parlor meetings, and 5-7 larger cultivation and stewardship events, in addition to 15-18 Zoom stewardship and cultivation events.
