Betsy Korn and Howard Kohr

Leadership, American Israel Public Affairs Committee

Betsy Korn, the incoming president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), and Howard Kohr, its executive director, will together steer the bipartisan organization committed to strengthening, protecting, and promoting the US-Israel relationship in ways that enhance the security of both nations. Korn, who started the sports business BVision Sportsmedia, once served as an AIPAC intern. Kohr, who has served in his role since 1996, shared at the March 2019 AIPAC Policy Conference some of the challenges facing American Jewry: “The scurrilous charge of dual loyalty is a signal, and that signal, amplified by today's social media, is now empowering people who have long-opposed our cause, our movement and frankly, everything we have built. Now we see the intense hatred of the Jewish state is creeping from the margins towards the center of our politics – places where political coalitions are built, places where this nation's leaders gather to debate and make decisions.” (Photo: Courtesy)
