Gary Ginsberg, who worked in the Clinton administration and held top communications jobs at Time Warner, News Corp. and Softbank, chairs the New York Solidarity Network, a $1,000 annual membership group that will promote pro-Israel leadership and combat antisemitism in NYC.

The New York Times likens NYSN to a local version of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

The organization will counter left-wing efforts, specifically the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, to boycott Israel over its treatment of Palestinians.

Ginsberg was a lawyer in the Clinton White House and the Justice Dept. He then served as executive VP for communications & marketing at Time Warner, senior advisor to CEO Jeff Bewkes, executive VP-marketing and corporate affairs at News Corp., and counselor to CEO Rupert Murdoch.

Ginsberg exited Softbank in 2021 as senior VP-head of its corporate communications unit.

NYSN has hired Moonshot Strategies as its lobbying firm. Moonshot’s co-founders Jenny Sedlis and Jason Ortiz helped run a Super PAC that backed Eric Adams for Mayor.

It has tapped former City Council president Corey Johnson.
