Today (Sunday December 2, 2012) Leah Golan, Deputy Director General for Programs at The Jewish Agency for Israel informed the Director General of her intention to leave the Jewish Agency after 20 years of dedicated service. Golan served in a wide range of senior managements positions as a shlicha (emissary) to Jewish communities around the world and in the Jewish Agency headquarters.
Over the last decades, Leah Golan was one of the key drivers within The Jewish Agency for Israel. She was a respected manager whose impressive skills and capabilities helped to shape the values and the ideological and administrative direction of the Jewish Agency. Over the course of her career, Leah dealt with and managed the major issues at the heart of the Jewish Agency: Aliyah and absorption, social activism, partnerships, the Israel Experience and shlichim.
After the adoption of the new strategic plan in 2010, Leah expertly led the process to restructure the content units of the Jewish Agency. Today, after completing this process, she is seeking new professional challenges and horizons.
The Chairman of the Executive of the Jewish Agency, Natan Sharansky said “Leah Golan’s contribution to the Jewish People, to Israeli society and to the Jewish Agency is etched onto the pages of history of the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Jewish people.”
Natan Sharansky requested that Leah remain involved with the Jewish Agency, and to direct specific efforts in order to ensure the continued development and growth of the Jewish Agency.
