The Jewish Agency for Israel’s veteran spokesman
Michael Jankelowitz is leaving the organization after 33 years of service.
Jankelowitz joined JAFI in April 1978 when he became director of student affairs
at the American Zionist Youth Foundation in New York.
Since then the
South African-born Jankelowitz rose steadily through the ranks, eventually
becoming the group’s spokesman in charge of handling foreign
Jankelowitz said that although he may be leaving the Jewish Agency
he will not be leaving the Jewish people.
“I’ve received many offers to
join consultancy companies related to the Jewish world on initiatives related to
my experience,” he said.
