The Republican Jewish Coalition has elected new leadership to its board of directors.

“It is a pleasure to welcome our newest board members, each of whom is an accomplished, dedicated American patriot, and a strong defender of the U.S. Jewish community and of Israel,” RJC national chairman Norm Coleman said in a statement on Monday.

Those joining include VativoRx CEO Michael Bogachek, lawyer Allan Polunsky, philanthropist Susan Schneider and writer Irit Tratt. Philanthropist Barbara Feingold, the widow of Dr. Jeffrey Feingold, has also been elected to the board, a position held by her late husband.

Investor Jay Zeidman will also join the board of directors. Zeidman was appointed this year to serve on the Texas Holocaust, Genocide and Antisemitism Advisory Commission.

“On behalf of our entire board, I look forward to working with these new board members as we grow and enhance our capabilities leading into the 2024 elections,” said Coleman.
