Renowned New York developer and philanthropist Elie Hirschfeld has been honored with an appointment to the Israel Bonds National Campaign Council.

“I am pleased to be part of Israel Bonds and its important work,” said the principal owner of Hirschfeld Properties. “Being actively involved with Israel’s economic growth through investments in Israel bonds is a decision I am proud to have made.”

In the last four years, Development Corporation for Israel/Israel Bonds sold approximately one Billion in bonds annually in the United States to develop every aspect of Israel’s economy.

The iconic developer has a long history of political, financial and personal support for the State of Israel.

“Israel has always been part of me — I was born in Tel Aviv,” said Elie Hirschfeld.  With my increased commitment to the Jewish state and Israel Bonds, and my new position on the Council, I look forward to introducing my business colleagues and friends to Israel bonds and to joining me in becoming stakeholders in one of the world’s most resilient economies.”

Elie Hirschfeld created the Hirschfeld Foundation to direct his philanthropic efforts in support of education, healthcare, athletics, and Jewish causes.

He also has served on the boards of the Weizmann Institute and the Jewish National Fund and the Hirschfeld family has provided playgrounds and contributed to numerous special projects throughout Israel.  

Recently, the Brown University Judaic Studies building was named for Elie Hirschfeld, a Brown Trustee emeritus, in recognition of a new major gift made by him.

“My involvement with Israel Bonds is a natural extension of my commitment to the country,” says Elie Hirschfeld, “It offers me another amazing opportunity to be a part of Israel’s future.”

Proceeds from the sale of the bonds have played a decisive role in Israel’s rapid evolution into a groundbreaking, global leader in high-tech, greentech and biotech.
