Who runs NIF?


NIF is run by a governing board, comprising officers and directors from Israel and the Diaspora. Board members include Naomi Chazan (former Member and Deputy Speaker of the Knesset), Itzhak Galnoor (former head of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s office) and Daniel C. Kurtzer, former US Ambassador to Egypt and to Israel. Other board members include prominent Israeli and US academics, businessmen and philanthropists. You can see the full list of NIF International’s board members here.

NIF also has an International Council, an advisory group established in 2002 to supplement the work of the organisation’s governing board. The role of the international council - co-chaired by Amb. Kurtzer and Adv. Talia Sasson, academic and former legal advisor to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon - is to sustain involvement of past board members and to educate, motivate, and nurture future leadership for the NIF.
