His appointment was approved unanimously by the Board of Trustees on July 29, 2019. Mr. Goor will begin his term immediately. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees includes five outstanding individuals, four of whom have been appointed since 2016, including: Ambassador Fay Hartog-Levin (Ret.) who began her term in May 2016; Paula B. Pretlow who began her term in January 2018; Gordon Berlin who began his term in January 2019; and now Nimrod Goor who has just started his term. Robert T. Kelly, Jr. currently serves as the Board Chair.

Kelly, Jr., Weinberg Foundation Board Chair. “Mr. Goor’s appointment not only rounds out the composition of the Board in terms of geographic diversity, it also affirms the Foundation’s long-term commitment to Israel.”
