Governor Murphy Announces Appointments to New Jersey-Israel Commission

Governor Phil Murphy, on Yom Ha’atzmaut, announced the appointments of 77 public members to the New Jersey–Israel Commission.

“I am proud to announce these appointments to the New Jersey-Israel Commission,” said Governor Murphy. “New Jersey has had a special relationship with Israel dating back decades, one that Tammy and I were honored to continue with an official visit to Israel in 2018. I am confident that… the members of the Commission will continue to strengthen our friendship with the Israeli people and provide further opportunities for collaboration on economic, educational and cultural initiatives.”

“In December of 2019 I had the incredible opportunity to visit Israel and see the richness of its land and people up close. Israel remains one of New Jersey’s most important friends and partners, and I am truly proud to join Governor Murphy in welcoming the new members of the New Jersey-Israel Commission,” said New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way. “I look forward to interacting with all of them as they bring our two states ever closer together.”

“I am enthused with the announcement and release today by the governor of the names of the incoming members of our New Jersey Israel Commission. The breadth of talent, expertise and individual commitment to Israel, our state of New Jersey and the New Jersey-Israel relationship of each and every one of our new commission members is truly beyond compare,” said Commission Co-Chair Mark Levenson.

Members of the New Jersey-Israel Commission include leaders in business, journalism, music, diplomacy, civics, religion, technology, medicine, academia and other sectors, representing the true spirit of the Commission’s mission. Additionally, senators Loretta Weinberg, James Beach, Tom Kean, Jr. and Robert Singer and assembly members Gary Schaer, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Jon Bramnick and John DiMaio serve as legislative representatives to the Commission.
