Leon Charney

Leon H. Charney's rise to international prominence is a classic "American Dream" story. Born to an immigrant family, Charney worked his way through Yeshiva University and Brooklyn Law School before being admitted to the Bar in 1965. With a $200 bank account Charney started his own law firm representing sports and show business personalities. His intelligence and creativity led him into the world of high finance and investment banking. This opened a door into politics.

When Leon Charney was only 36 years old he became counsel and advisor to Senator Vance Hartke of Indiana. His association with Hartke led Charney into the world of international politics and back door channels. In six years of working for Senator Hartke, Leon Charney established contacts in the highest echelons of power. One of those was the Prime Minister of Israel, Golda Meir who asked for Charney's help in the freeing of Soviet Jewish dissidents. His involvement brought about the successful emigration of 1,000 Jews from the Soviet Union to Israel. President Jimmy Carter then used Charney's "back door channels". From 1976 to 1980 Charney served as advisor to President Carter on the Camp David Accords. Jimmy Carter later referred to Leon Charney as "the unsung hero of the Camp David Peace Treaty. In 1986 Mr. Charney traveled secretly to Tunisia to meet with Yasser Arafat. This meeting was among the first entrees into the possible peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

From Governors Mario Cuomo to George Pataki, Ezer Weitzman to Rudolph Giuliani, politicians and professionals have tapped Leon Charney's knowledge and experience to aid in matters both economic and political. For thirteen years Mr. Charney has moderated The Leon Charney Report an award winning nationally televised public affairs program. He has authored three books, Special Counsel, Spy For Peace and The CharneyReport: Confronting the Arab-Israeli Conflict. Leon Charney graduated from Yeshiva University in 1960, received his Bachelor of Hebrew Letters Degree from Yeshiva in 1961 and Brooklyn Law School in 1964. He is married to Tzili Doron and they reside in New York City with their two sons, Mickey and Nati.
