Former Israeli Mission to UN speechwriter, AIPAC professional joins Steinreich Communications

by | Dec 17, 2020

Steinreich Communications Group, an international public relations firm, has appointed former Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations speechwriter Joshua Lavine as an account manager in its Jewish and Israel Advocacy practice.

Lavine will be working on a broad array of leading Jewish organizations as well as clients in Israel and throughout the Middle East, including those looking to expand their work in the Gulf since the signing of the Abraham Accords.

Prior to joining Steinreich Communications, Lavine served as a speechwriter for the Israeli Mission at the United Nations. In this role, he drafted speeches and statements for a variety of Israeli government officials including former Ambassador Danny Danon. Prior to this role, Lavine served as the associate area director for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in Bergen and Rockland counties. At AIPAC, he was responsible for educating investors on Middle East developments and assisted in planning area events featuring politicians, diplomats and policy analysts.

“Josh has an exceptional understanding of the issues affecting our clients in the Jewish world as well as Israel and broader Middle East affairs that will greatly benefit our clients,” said Steinreich Communications Group CEO Stan Steinreich. “As events in the Middle East are changing so rapidly, Josh’s experience and contacts add to our ability to help our clients navigate the many new opportunities available to them.”

Several months ago, Steinreich Communications formed a new practice specialty to help Israeli and Gulf organizations and companies explore new regional relationships following the announcement of the Abraham Accords. Led by SVP Ariella Steinreich, the group has already secured many new accounts from organizations in the travel and tourism, food, high tech and finance sectors looking to do more cross-border business.

Lavine received his master’s degree in international relations from The Fletcher School at Tufts University with concentrations in international security studies and Southwest Asia and Islamic civilization. He was awarded Honos Civicus for his commitment to civic engagement and served as a senior print editor for The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs. He received his bachelor’s degree from New York University where he majored in journalism and Hebrew and Judaic studies.

Lavine resides in Queens, NY with his family.

Founded in 2003, Steinreich Communications represents some of the world’s leading corporations and consumer brands. It is one of the nation’s fastest growing, full-service public relations firms with offices in New York, Washington, Los Angeles, High Point, London, Frankfurt and Tel Aviv.
