1.  The By-laws of the Jewish Agency [Section VIII, clause F3(a)] do not allow, inter alia, members of the Board of Governors of JAFI to be appointed as directors of Jewish Agency companies, unless the Board of Governors, upon the written request of the Chairman of the Assets and Liabilities Committee, with the approval of the Treasurer and Chairman of the Executive, allows such an appointment as an exception, provided that it be satisfied that special circumstances exist.

2.  The Chairman of the Assets and Liabilities Committee, having received the approval of the Treasurer and the Chairman of the Executive, hereby requests the Board of Governors to allow the appointment of Mr Leonid Nevzlin and Ms Arlene Kaufman to the Board of Directors of The Jewish People Policy Planning Institute

3. As Mr Nevzlin and Ms Kaufman have special knowledge and experience in the area of activity of the company to which it is proposed to appoint them as directors, the Board of Governors is satisfied that special circumstances exist for these appointments.


Therefore be it resolved to allow the above appointments.

All other rules regarding the appointment of directors will apply.
