Throughout his municipal career, Zamir promoted and implemented many programs. In 2011, the Ambassador promoted public awareness about the importance of political activity among Israeli citizens. In May 2020, he played a key role in the formation of the most diverse government in Israeli history.

Rabbi Erica Gerson
Rabbi Erica Gerson and her husband, Mark, a businessman, who helped found the African Mission Healthcare Foundation in 2010 and sit on its board, have now become possibly the largest private funders of Christian-provided medical care on the continent. Erica , Mark and their 4 children initiated the L’Chaim (“To Life”) Initiative in 2016 with an annual investment awarded for outstanding Christian medical missionary service, benefiting the hospital at which they serve. Recently, they have helped AMH to expand the initiative to include the L’Chaim Mission Hospital Teaching Network (MHTN), focused on investing in and strengthening medical education centers to train the next generation of African healthcare professionals to provide excellent, compassionate medical care. “We feel animated by the Talmudic teaching that saving a single life is saving a world,” said Erica, who was ordained as a rabbi at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.
Rabbi Joseph Potasnik

He has served as Chaplain of the New York City Fire Department since 1999. Rabbi Potasnik maintained a high profile, helping many families cope with the disaster of September 11th, 2001. He spent countless hours and days at ground zero searching for survivors as well as comforting and praying with the grieving families. He never once asked the families what religion they were.
