We are very happy to announce that Yael Heffer has joined the Or Shalom for a year as Program Coordinator
Yael is currently working on her Master degree in Child and Youth Care and has held several positions in Vancouver at the JCC, Jewish Federation, and JNF in both childrens’ programming and event planning. Among her other activities this year are being a board member of Aleph Canada, and part of the Steering Committee for Limmud.
“I am very much looking forward to working with the lay leadership and families as well as with Reb Hannah and Lily to take the children, youth and family programming at Or Shalom to the next level. As I have been getting to know the congregation over the past few months and talking with families, it seems that there is both demand and much potential for work to be done with the younger generation,” says Yael in her letter of application.
Please join us in welcoming Yael to the Or Shalom staff, and say “yes!” when she asks for your help in taking our programming to the next level.
