In his career, Israeli diplomat Shlomi Kofman has been posted to such far-flung locales as China and Thailand. But to best prepare him for serving as Israel’s consul general in San Francisco, Kofman did a tour of duty in the most challenging post of all: New York City.
"It was very intense," he said of his tenure from 2010 to 2014 as Israel’s deputy consul general in the Big Apple. "Like everywhere, to be an Israeli diplomat is a huge opportunity but also a huge challenge, one we enjoy."

Kofman comes into the job with an existing advantage. Israel already enjoys a very strong economic relationship with the United States, its No. 1 trading partner, with more than 1,000 joint research and development projects launched in recent years.
