About Yisroel

Founder of: ZAKA Foundation, Israel Support Fund as well as Founder and Director of International Business Development for Proactive Global Security.

As PROACTIVE GLOBAL SECURITY's Founder and Director of International Business Development, Yisroel Stefansky plays a fundamental role helping organizations throughout the US understand terrorism from the perspective of the victim. He is an international lecturer and recognized expert in practical disaster response & relief.

A true veteran of the war between terrorists and civilization. Stefansky has worked with police forces, emergency response teams, and many other first-responders in various countries throughout the world as a consultant and response trainer.

As a young man Stefansky found himself at the site of a violent terror attack in Jerusalem. Rather than turn away he took action and became part of the rescue effort. This experience led him to found ZAKA, an organization that carries out the important and difficult task of recovering body parts for burial whenever and wherever a disaster or terror attack occurs. The ZAKA foundation today consists of several hundred young volunteers who are stationed across Israel, poised and ready to respond to any disaster.

Stefansky was sent to Houston when the Space Shuttle, Columbia, disintegrated and subsequently aided in recovering victims in the U.S. following hurricane Katrina. He established the Israeli civilian search and rescue dive team, and is a founder of the Israel Support Fund, a charitable organization supporting low profile hospitals, institutions and families that are normally overlooked by donors.

He has appeared on FOX News, Israel National News, Radio Israel and CFRB Toronto.

Yisroel can talk about the history and current situation of Arab-Israeli conflict, the historical significance of our nation supporting Israel, etc. Hes a US citizen and understands things from our political perspective very well. He is spending a couple months on the west coast speaking, making contacts, arranging trips for tour groups (that would be a fun group thing for tea partiers!), as well as arranging training tours for law enforcement/security/first responders.

Yisroel is putting together a tour of Israel next fall and it's filling up quickly (for tour info visit His main website that trains for the Department of Homeland Security, etc. is
