1. The By-laws of the Jewish Agency [Section VIII, clause F3(a)] do not allow, inter alia, members of the JAFI Executive 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 both the Chairman and Deputy 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 Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Executive, hereby requests the Board of Governors to allow the appointment of Rabbi Vernon Kurtz to the Board of Directors of the Jewish People Policy Institute.
3. As Rabbi Kurtz has special knowledge and experience in the area of activity of the company to which it is proposed to appoint him as a director, the Board of Governors is satisfied that special circumstances exist for this appointment.
Therefore be it resolved to allow the above appointment.
All other rules regarding the appointment of directors will apply.
