Bolinger Replaces Mizrahi as Israel Project Head

The Israel Project named Cathy Bolinger, its chief operating and financial officer, as the interim chief executive officer to replace the retiring Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi.

Cathy Bolinger joined The Israel Project in 2005 and has been responsible for its day-to-day operations. In a news release announcing the selection, Israel Project Chairman Len Leader praised Bolinger’s work serving as the “right hand” to Mizrahi, the group’s founder.

“Cathy has played a critical role in TIP’s expansion and in our many successful endeavors,” Leader said in the statement. “It’s a tremendous comfort to know that Cathy’s commitment, enormous capabilities and breadth of knowledge enable her to seamlessly pick up our organization’s reins of leadership.”

Mizrahi helped found The Israel Project in 2001 in response to negative coverage of the second intifada. The organization reaches out to the media to explain Israeli positions and to facilitate access to Israelis and their government.

Bolinger previously served as the COO of the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago and the CFO of the United Service Organizations.
