As a Co-founder of the IAC, Alpert recognized the need for a unified Israeli American community when in the summer of 2006, during the 2nd Lebanon war, very few Israelis showed up to a pro-Israel demonstration.
After speaking with Ehud Danoch (The council General of Israel in Los Angeles) they decided to host a meeting at Alpert's home in Tarzana which formed the board for the creation of the IAC. Alpert served as the first Co-Chariman of the IAC in 2007 and served until 2012.
