The staff and boards of NGO Monitor mourn the passing of the esteemed Dr. Avi Beker and express our most sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Dr. Beker was a member of the Israeli delegation to the UN from 1977 to 1982, served as Secretary General of the World Jewish Congress, and was a key figure in campaigns for Holocaust assets restitution, against antisemitism, and for the rights of Jewish refugees from Arab lands.

We were honored to have Dr. Beker as an Amuta member on our Board of Directors, and know that his exceptional contribution, expertise, and influence in so many areas will have a lasting impact into the future.

Prof. Gerald M. Steinberg
