The America-Israel Friendship League announced on Sunday that Joel Klein will serve as its new president.

Klein replaces Kenneth J. Bialkin, who has served as both chairman and president of the organization since 2013. Bialkin will remain as AIFL chairman of the board, a position he has held since 1995. Klein is currently the chief policy and strategy officer at Oscar Health, and he previously served as chancellor of the New York City Department of Education, where he oversaw more than 1,600 schools, with 1.1 million students, 136,000 employees and a $22-billion budget.

“I am honored to join AIFL, an organization that does so much to broaden public knowledge of, and support for, Israel,” Klein said.
