The Druze Veterans community of Israel is thrilled that longtime friend William Daroff was named as CEO of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations along side Vice Chairman Malcolm Hoenlein, who has shown love and support for Israel’s Druze throughout his term of 33 years.
Daroff currently serves as senior vice president for public policy and director of the Washington office of the Jewish Federations of North America.
