Rabbi John L. Rosove is the Senior Rabbi of Temple Israel of Hollywood, and served in that capacity for 25 years. Rabbi Rosove, a progressive Reform Zionist, is a national co-Chair of the Rabbinic Cabinet of J Street, on the board of the American Friends of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism (IMPJ), the Advisory Committee of the Daniel Center of Tel Aviv, an International Vice-Chair of Rabbis for Women of the Wall (WOW), and a member of the Israel Committee of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR). He was also the 2002 Recipient of the World Union for Progressive Judaism International Humanitarian Award.
Ambassador Kurtzer retired in 2005 after 29-year career in the U.S. Foreign Service with the rank of Career-Minister. From 2001-2005 he served as the United States Ambassador to Israel and from 1997-2001 as the United States Ambassador to Egypt. Throughout his career, Kurtzer was instrumental in formulating and executing US policy toward the Middle East peace process. He crafted the 1988 peace initiative of Secretary of State George P. Shultz, and in 1991 served as a member of the U.S. peace team that brought about the Madrid Peace Conference.
Jeremy Ben-Ami is the founder and President of J Street, bringing to the role both deep experience in American politics and government and a passionate commitment to the state of Israel. His political resume includes serving in the mid-1990s as the Deputy Domestic Policy Advisor in the White House to President Bill Clinton and working on seven Presidential and numerous state and local campaigns. Ben-Ami’s family connection to Israel goes back 130 years to the first aliyah when his great-grandparents were among the first settlers in Petah Tikva while his grandparents were one of the founding families of Tel Aviv.
