My Thoughts.

The passing of Ambassador Meir Rosenne

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Ambassador Meir Rosenne.  Ambassador Rosenne, shown in the attached photo at an Israel Bonds Holocaust Remembrance Award Dinner with Henry Kissinger, Elie Wiesel and Sigmund Strochlitz, was widely recognized as an accomplished diplomat who represented Israel with distinction in Paris and Washington.

Ambassador Rosenne  was  also appreciated for his role in forging peace between Israel and Egypt.  As the Foreign Ministry’s legal advisor, he played an essential part in drafting the Camp David Accords.

And, I remember Ambassador Rosenne’s dedicated leadership with Israel Bonds, for which he served as president & CEO from 1989-1994. His time at Bonds coincided with historic and crucial events for Israel, including Operation Desert Storm and the influx of hundreds of thousands of Soviet Jews.  He responded to these events by helping to lead the organization to significant sales.

I applaud Ambassador Rosenne’s achievements on behalf of Israel and the Israel Bonds organization, and I send my condolences and prayers to his family.
