Helene Herbstman, a prominent leader in Jewish organizations on both the national and local levels, has been named new chair of the Israel Bonds National Women’s Division.  The Chicago native began her three-year term last month.

In announcing the appointment, Israel Bonds President and CEO Izzy Tapoohi said, “The Bonds organization has gained a wonderful asset in Helene Herbstman.  We are fully confident she will be a proactive chair who will meet with outstanding success in achieving the Women’s Division goal of connecting investment-savvy women with Israel through investments in Israel bonds.” 

Herbstman expressed “excitement at being given the honor to lead the National Women’s Division.  I now have the opportunity to inspire others with my passion and love for Israel in the hope that together, we can continue to build a strong, vibrant Jewish nation.”

Herbstman considers herself a product of her parent’s values, encompassing a strong Jewish identity, organizational leadership and a dedicated work ethic. She first became involved with Israel Bonds through her husband Burt, a national Bonds leader in his own right, and she served three years as chair of the Chicago Women’s Division.

In addition, Herbstman serves on the Illinois board of AIPAC and has been active with Hadassah and the Jewish Federation.  A strong believer in “from generation to generation,” her children all hold leadership positions with Jewish organizations.

A graduate of the University of Illinois with a B.S. in physical education, Herbstman taught and coached for seven years at Sundling Junior High School in Palatine.  She was twice- elected to the board of education at Township High School District 113 Deerfield/Highland Park from 2003-2011, and served two years as board president.
