The Zionist Organization of America established an Israel office at the end of 2007 with Jeff Daube as its director. Crossing the Atlantic as an oleh from New York, Jeff brought along his 18 years of Israel advocacy experience intermixed with 31 years of teaching. He then naturally focused his new role on communicating an accurate sense of the Knesset and the Israeli people to Congress, and vice versa, while educating about the intersecting interests of both of his beloved countries. Jeff continues to stress these priorities in his ZOA work, and as Israel co-chair of two parallel groups: Legal Grounds/The Campaign to Promote Israel's Rights, and The International Committee for the Preservation of Har Hazeitim (Mt. of Olives).
