In order to help the CER advance its programs and reach its objectives, the CER has created the Board of Patrons.
The Board of Patrons consists of internationally respected lay people, women and men from within the Jewish community as well as friends of the Jewish community, who are influential in the areas of business, media, and politics, agree with the aims and goals of the CER and are ready to help the CER with advice, political influence and financial support in its mission.
Members of the Board of Patrons may underwrite certain programs of the CER and/or contribute to the general budget, sponsor meetings, conferences and publications of the organization. Members of the Board of Patrons are nominated by the President of the CER and in direct contact with the President of the CER, advise him on political,
financial and social issues, arising within the framework of the CER.
Members of the Board of Patrons receive periodical updates from the President of the CER and are invited to at least one annual gathering of the Board of Patrons, where policy and finances are discussed. Members of the Board of Patrons are also periodically invited to meetings of the CER with heads of state and political leaders.
