Jessica Montell, Executive Director of B’Tselem, has announced that B’Tselem’s Board of Directors recently approved the establishment of a U.S. office in Washington, DC, thereby becoming "the only Israeli human rights organization to have a presence in Washington" (the news was released via a letter sent out on their email update subscribers). According to their release, their "first task is to fundraise for this initiative." The release also includes job postings for the new office: "We are looking for two people who between them must be well-versed in Washington advocacy, familiar with the US Jewish community, and able to speak authoritatively about the Israeli human rights situation."

NOTE: This release was sent out to email update subscribers, but has yet to appear on the B’Tselem website.
