Cheryl Dorchinsky, founding executive director of the Atlanta Israel Coalition, will be joining Americans United with Israel in an executive position. She will continue her job at the AIC, with the hope that her new position will allow the organization to engage in more Israeli activism.
“I am continuing to dedicate myself with AIC, but going forward with United With Israel, and the fact that it continues to complement both organizations, is a great thing.”
Dorchinsky hopes her new position with Americans United with Israel will help AIC, saying that it “will provide an opportunity to amplify our work for Israel and the Jewish people.”
The goals of this new partnership, through Dorchinsky, include helping Americans United with Israel get involved with “more boots on the ground things.” Some of the other goals include being involved in more local Jewish events, leading unique missions to Israel, and more hands-on projects in Israel.
