Herzl Makov is CEO of the Menachem Begin Heritage Center, a national center to commemorate Israel’s sixth prime minister. Under his leadership, the Center has grown to become one of leaders in Zionist and democratic education led by the values of Menachem Begin, serving the thousands of young people and soldiers who participate in its programs every year.

Serving as a fighter pilot in the Israeli Air Force, obtaining the rank of major, his squadron participated in the IAF’s bombing of Osirak, Iraq’s nuclear reactor, in 1981 – under the orders of Menachem Begin. This decision established what was called “the Begin Doctrine” – no country with the declared aim of destroying Israel would be permitted to acquire the means to do so.

Makov holds a degree in Public Policy from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, was one of the founders of Ein Prat: the Academy for Leadership and served as chairman of the Board of Directors. He served as director of the Prime Minister’s Office and held positions in the Jewish Agency and the World Zionist Organization before taking up his position at the Begin Heritage Center.
