Shoham Nicolet


Born out of a need to organize and engage the Israeli-American community, the Israeli Leadership Council (ILC) was founded in 2007. The founding group formulated the ILC’s 3 key pillars: to strengthen future generations of Israeli-Americans, The American Jewish community, and The State of Israel. Between its launch in 2007 and 2013, the organization’s rapid growth established the ILC as the largest Israeli-American organization in the US, engaging 50,000 community members through its various activities. In 2013, the organization changed its name to the Israeli-American Council (IAC) to more accurately reflect its mission. The IAC was unable to disclose its 2016 information before the time of publishing.
