American Friends of the Israel Museum (AFIM) have appointed three new members to its board: Chella Safra, Pam Sanders, and, as president, Jill Bernstein. In her new role, Bernstein will continue the work of outgoing president Stacy Bronfman in raising funds as part of a network of 16 other organizations that make up the Israel Museum’s global support network.
Bernstein has been an AFIM board member since 2011. She concurrently serves on the boards of the Brooklyn Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., and Artis, an Israeli nonprofit contemporary arts organization.
In a press statement, Barbara Lane, a nominating chair on AFIM’s board of trustees, said of Bernstein, “I cannot think of a better individual to build on AFIM’s success—her passion for the arts and her commitment to supporting vital cultural institutions will greatly enrich our organization in the years to come.”
