Harvey Bell – Zionist Organization of America Board Member
Harvey Bell is a longtime West Orange, NJ resident who serves on the board of directors of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA). ZOA works to fight anti-Semitism and to serve as a strident advocate for the continued existence of a safe, secure homeland for the Jewish people in the State of Israel. The organization was founded in 1897 and played an instrumental role in the establishment of Israel in 1948. It also led the successful fight to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, deport Nazi war criminals, and obtain federal civil rights protections for Jewish students. ZOA has been recognized as “the most credible advocate for Israel” within the American Jewish community by the Wall Street Journal, and as one of the most influential and prominent Jewish groups in the United States.
In addition, Harvey Bell is also a board member of the New York Friars Club, a historic social club founded in 1904 and since 1957 housed at its iconic “monastery” at 57 E. 55th Street in Manhattan. Originally a group of Broadway theater professionals, the Friars Club has become legendary for its membership roster of celebrities and noted comedians, as well as for its comedic “roasts” of luminaries like Frank Sinatra, Johnny Carson, Jerry Lewis, and Don Rickles.
Harvey Bell earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Texas A&M University. He has four decades of professional experience and is a longtime fan of the New York Knicks.
