J Street’s use of the PR firm its President owned in the late 1990s represents a conflict of interest.
Jeremy Ben-Ami co-founded Ben-Or Communications in 1998 and left the company at the end of 1999. For eleven years since moving from Israel back to the United States, Ben-Ami has had no involvement in management or operation of the business, and in that time he has never received one penny from the company.
The company is a small business, which pays no dividends and whose shares have no market value.
J Street, along with scores of other leading non-profits working toward peace and democracy in Israel, is pleased to use Ben-Or Communications, a leader in the field of public interest communications in Israel.
