Gerardo Joffe z”l
Founder, President Emeritus

geraldoGerardo Joffe fled Berlin, Germany in 1938, just following the infamous Nazi Kristallnacht attack on Jews, their businesses and synagogues. After a successful career as the founder and president of Haverhills, a direct mail business, he launched FLAME—Facts and Logic About the Middle East— in 1985. His intent was to create and organization that would respond to anti-Israel ads and editorial coverage in mainstream media. Mr. Joffe wrote more than 130 of FLAME’s early pro-Israel hasbarah messages that have appeared in national media. He passed away peacefully in July 2018 in his home in San Francisco, but lives on as a blessing and an inspiration to all defenders of Israel.
