Jewish Agency for Israel Extends Search for New Chair

The Jewish Agency for Israel’s nominating committee has extended the search process for a new chair, it announced on Sunday. The committee has been working to select a new chair since the election of Isaac Herzog as president of Israel in July. The nominating committee met again on Sunday.

In order to be awarded the nomination for the position of chair of the executive, a candidate must receive nine out of ten votes from the committee members. “At the conclusion of Sunday’s meeting of the nominating committee, all candidates were notified that none had received the votes needed for nomination and that the selection process is being extended until the most suitable candidate is found,” the committee said in a statement. The committee thanked all of the candidates for their participation in the process.

The Jewish Agency’s nominating committee comprises senior leaders from the Jewish world, including representatives of the World Zionist Organization, the Jewish Federations of North America and Keren Hayesod – United Israel Appeal.
