Leaders from a number of prominent Jewish organizations attended a July 10 meeting at Israel Bonds’ corporate headquarters in New York, hosted by Howard L. Goldstein, who was recently elected chairman of the board of Israel Bonds, and Israel Maimon, its president and CEO.

Goldstein succeeds Richard L. Hirsch, who served as board chairman for nearly eight years.

A certified public accountant from New Jersey now living in Miami, Goldstein previously served as the board’s vice chair. He was approved by a unanimous vote in May during a meeting of the organization’s national board of directors.

Goldstein, like Hirsch and other predecessors, sees Israel Bonds as indispensable in helping develop Israel’s economy.

At the meeting, the recently elected chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations, Arthur Stark, who served as board chairman of the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, noted the crucial role Israel Bonds play in enhancing Israel’s global vitality, which these days includes major advances in high-tech, green-tech, biotech and other cutting-edge industries.
