NEW YORK (AP) -- Neil Goldstein, director of national affairs with the American Jewish Congress, has been named executive director, succeeding Phil Baum, who is retiring.
Goldstein, a former community organizer, helped raise $11 million for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Baum worked 30 years with the organization, which is noted for advocacy of strict separation of church and state and opposition to such policies as private school vouchers.
Founded in 1918, the Jewish advocacy agency has 50,000 members.
