Bank Leumi CEO Galia Maor called on the American Jewish community Sunday to increase their investments in the Israeli economy, spearheading a focus from other business leaders at this week's United Jewish Communities General Assembly.
"In order to advance and accelerate the development of Israel, we have reached a stage that we should use all the strength of the Jewish people," Maor said at the opening session of the GA in Los Angeles. "Israel today has a strong economy and is more attractive than ever for investors. The time time is right for you to increase your investments."
Maor is one of several leading Israeli business personalities and policy makers attending the three-day GA this week and will moderate a session on Tuesday entitled "The Israel Economy: Investing in Israel Today." The session will include a keynote address by Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer and panelists Haim Saban, CEO of the Saban Capital Group; Elliott Broidy, CEO of the Markstone Capital Group; and Idan Ofer, chairman of The Israel Corporation.
