He is the president and co-founder of We Are For Israel, a multi- national Israel advocacy organization and the parent of Rabbis for Israel, a group of rabbis from around the world who believe in a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a focus on maintaining the security of the Jewish state.

Expert on the history and causes of Antisemitism and committed to combating hatred and prejudice, Rabbi Kaufman works with a number of anti- genocide and interfaith organizations.
