A Westminster-based think tank has appointed the former international media adviser to Israel’s President as it’s new second-in-charge.

Jason Pearlman joins The Henry Jackson Society after more than three years in his role with President Reuven Rivlin.

The new appointee, who recently served as a liaison with the White House for the meeting between Rivlin and US Vice-President Mike Pence, has also worked as a strategic consultant in Israel and the UK.

Jason Pearlman said his new position at the foreign policy think-tank was “a tremendous honour and an exciting challenge. Throughout my previous roles, the Henry Jackson Society has been a first port of call for information and research on a wide range of topics. The chance to contribute to this important work is a true privilege.”

HJS founder and Executive Director Alan Mendoza said they were “delighted to have enlisted Jason’s experience and skills to help us continue in this very positive direction.”


Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
