Israel, a Huntington resident who formerly represented Long Island’s 3rd District, was a political powerhouse as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee from 2011 to 2015.

Earlier, Long Island University made Israel chairman of its new Global Institute and named him a distinguished writer-in-residence, which will kick off with a campus appearance by former Secretary of State Colin Powell March 2.
