Consul General David Siegal

Since joining Israel’s foreign service nearly two decades ago, the 49-year-old David Siegel has been assigned to Eritrea, on the Horn of Africa; to Israel’s embassy in Washington, D.C., as, successively, chief of staff, congressional liaison and spokesman; and, during the last two years, as chief of staff for Israel’s deputy foreign minister Danny Ayalon in Jerusalem.

In the last position, according to Siegel’s official biography, “He was involved in policy formulation and decision-making at senior levels of Israel’s foreign policy establishment.”

During parts of the Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama administrations, Siegel participated in sensitive discussions between the United States and Israel, including at the 1998 Wye River peace summit, 1999 Israel-Syria negotiations and the 2000 Camp David Middle East peace summit.
