About Us

The Jerusalem-Washington Center’s mission is to strengthen the relationship between Israel and the U.S. Congress and State governments through policy and partnership opportunities.

We help our clients achieve their goals in Washington, DC, and Jerusalem.  In the United States we work with the Senate, House of Representatives and Executive Branch, and in Israel with the Knesset and government ministries, on a wide range of matters pertaining to U.S.-Israel relations. We assist and advise corporations, organizations and politicians in creating, presenting, pursuing and implementing policy, political and special interest needs. 

 

Israel and the U.S. have fundamentally different governmental structures.  They operate very differently.  This can lead to many misunderstandings. The central role of Congress in U.S. policy-making, and specifically its role in generating cooperative programs between the U.S. and Israel, is undervalued in Israel.  And, congressmen and senators interested in strengthening ties can face many obstacles from Israel, often derailing important opportunities.  Likewise, the interplay between Congress and the Executive Branch is crucial for many initiatives.

Jerusalem Washington Center’s (JWC) expertise and experience in Washington and Jerusalem enable us to help private companies, non-profit organizations and individuals capitalize on the many potential and existing frameworks.  JWC offers a deep understanding of how each government works, a keen eye for identifying pathways to success for your project, and the savvy and commitment to turn your idea into reality.

Testimonials

The Jerusalem-Washington Center is an organization that integrates Israeli entrepreneurship spirit along with American professionalism and thoroughness.  JWC assisted in me a series of meetings with the Federal government preparing all the necessary documents and presentation materials professionally and effectively, and accompanying the process from start to finish. JWC's  help was an integral part in accomplishing the task at hand.

The Jerusalem-Washington Center is doing a remarkable job in bridging policy innovations between the two capitols (and state capitols as well).  I have seen this first hand with their work in bringing United Hatzalah’s crowd-sourced system of volunteer first response to the United States — their combination of thoughtfulness, creativity and intelligent relationship building will go a long way towards the sharing and socializing of the best social and political ideas and in so doing will strengthen and deepen the great alliance between the United States and Israel.
