The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022


Howard Kohr and Betsy Korn

CEO and President of AIPAC

The CEO and President, respectively, of the America Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) – the main lobbying group for Israel in Washington, DC – Howard Kohr and Betsy Korn have been busy shoring up support for Israel in an increasingly fragmented American political scene. “This is no moment for the pro-Israel movement to become selective about its friends,” they wrote in a letter to supporters in March 2022. “The one thing that guarantees Israel’s ability to defend itself is the enduring support of the United States. When we launched our political action committee last year, we decided that we would base decisions about political contributions on only one thing: whether a political candidate supports the US-Israel relationship.” (Photo: courtesy AIPAC and Reuters)
