From the press release:
Martin I. Bresler is currently the Chair of Americans for Peace Now, a Zionist organization that has for three decades been dedicated to the proposition that the long term best interests of the State of Israel are achievable only through the creation of two states living side by side in peace and security.
Martin has lived in New York City all his life. He earned a business degree from City College of New York (Baruch School) and a law degree from Harvard Law School. He was a corporate lawyer for almost forty years, the last sixteen as a partner at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan.
He has been active on the American Jewish Committee, serving as President of the New York Chapter (1990-1994); as a member of the National Board of Governors (1990-date), as a National Vice President (2001-2002) and on many committees and boards. He has traveled to Israel perhaps twenty times since his first visit there in 1957, both on organizational business and to visit with his many family members living there.
