He has served at the helm of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the National Conference on Soviet Jewry, the American Jewish Congress, the Israel Policy Forum and Project Nishma, which was created to encourage American Jewish organizations to be more supportive of the Middle East peace process.
