WestsideToday.com; your source for all West LA News!
Prior to his tenure at Liberty Hill, Bernstein held the positions of Senior Vice President, Executive Vice President, and President and CEO at a number of Jewish Federations across the United States.

This week, William (Bill) Bernstein assumed the position of Executive Director of Jewish World Watch (JWW) – one of America’s leading educational and advocacy organizations in the fight against genocide and mass atrocities. Headquartered in Los Angeles, JWW represents more than 375,000 activists across the United States.

Bernstein comes to JWW from the Liberty Hill Foundation, where he served as Chief Development Officer. Over the course of his three-decade career, Bernstein has held senior management positions at a range of Jewish and social justice organizations, earning a national reputation as a uniquely talented and passionate non-profit professional. He brings significant leadership experience and extensive knowledge of the national non-profit landscape to JWW.

“Jewish World Watch has experienced tremendous growth since its founding 11 years ago, developing from an idea at a single synagogue into a multi-faith grassroots movement spanning across America, ” said Janice Kamenir-Reznik, the Co-Founder and President of Jewish World Watch. “As we continue to grow, Bill Bernstein’s leadership and experience will be a tremendous asset for Jewish World Watch. We are thrilled to have him at the helm as we work to increase our organization’s impact and build an even broader coalition of activists committed to a world without genocide.”

“I feel privileged to become part of Jewish World Watch, which has demonstrated that local action can have an extraordinary global impact in the fight against genocide,” said Bernstein. “Advancing social justice has been a guiding principle of my career and a core value of my family for generations. I am excited to join JWW’s remarkably dedicated community of activists to fight for those threatened by genocide and mass atrocities in all corners of the world.”

Prior to his tenure at Liberty Hill, Bernstein held the positions of Senior Vice President, Executive Vice President, and President and CEO at a number of Jewish Federations across the United States. He also served as the Assistant Dean of Development at the University of Maryland School of Law, and Major Gift Director of RAND Corporation. Bernstein received his B.A, summa cum laude, from Montclair State University and his Masters of Social Work from Rutgers University.

Bernstein has received numerous awards for his work in the non-profit world, including the 2009 Benjamin Mandelkorn Outstanding Professional Achievement Award from the Association of Jewish Community Organization Professionals.

About Jewish World Watch (JWW): JWW is a leading organization in the fight against genocide and mass atrocities, representing 375,000 people across the United States. Since its founding in 2004, JWW has grown from a collection of Southern California synagogues into a national coalition that includes schools, churches, individuals, communities and partner organizations that share a vision of a world without genocide. The organization has raised millions of dollars to improve the lives of survivors of genocide and mass atrocities in Congo and Sudan, and educate communities across America to advocate for political change.
