Elliot Brandt named AIPAC-national managing director

Elliot Brandt, 45, the Western States director for AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee ) since 2002, will become managing director at the pro-Israel organization’s Washington D.C headquarters.

Brandt’s promotion to the organization’s national staff becomes effective in October. He succeeds Jonathan Missner,  and will be replaced in Los Angeles by Wayne Klitofsky, currently Deputy Regional Director, Southern Pacific at AIPAC.

“Although moving to D.C. and leaving this community will be personally very difficult for me, I have devoted my professional life to this cause and believe this is the right next step,” Brandt, who will oversee AIPAC’s national regional operations, development and its campus program, wrote in an email.

Last summer was a busy one for AIPAC. As Israel waged war with Gaza, the pro-Israel organization lobbied Congress to ensure that the United States provided funds to help sustain Israel's military defenses, among other things.

The lobbying group promotes pro-Israel legislation in the United States and has “10 regional offices and seven satellite offices that help pro-Israel activists…learn how they can affect Israel's future and security by promoting strong ties with the United States,” according to the AIPAC website.
