Passings: Pro-Israel Philanthropist Newton Becker

Israel has just lost a good friend.

From the Los Angleles Jewish Journal:

“A prolific donor who had a reputation for humility, Becker donated to organizations that shared his belief in Israel’s importance to the Jewish people and to the world, due to its democratic nature. He gave funds to StandWithUs, which fosters pro-Israeli activism, CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy on Middle East Reporting in America), the Zionist Organization of America, MEMRI, which translates Mideast media into English, and many others.” 

“However, Becker’s commitment to Israel transcended financial support, according to statements released by several organizations.” 

“He was an unusually great human being, a mensch,” said the ZOA’s Morton Klein.” 

“He shifted the paradigm of pro-Israel activism,” said StandWithUs’s Roz Rothstein. “Without him, the pro-Israel community would not be as strong and effective as it is today.”
