Press Release: New YJF Director.
The trustees of the Yoni Jesner Foundation are delighted to announce that Sarah David has been appointed as the new director of the Yoni Jesner Foundation.
Sarah has worked in the Jewish charity sector for several years running fundraising events and educational trips internationally. She is passionate about improving the world that her children grow up in.
Sarah replaces Sam Clifford, the YJF’s first professional director. Marsha Gladstone said about Sam: ‘This week we are bidding a very sad farewell to the wonderful Sam Clifford, our director of the past three years. Sam has taken the YJF onto an entirely new level and we will forever be grateful to her for her outstanding performance and utter dedication to the YJF. I think it’s true to say of Sam that you can take the girl out of the YJF but you can never take the YJF out of the girl!’.
Marsha continues: ‘We are so excited to welcome our new director Sarah David, who takes up her post at the YJF this week. Sarah has years of experience in many aspects of the community and brings her own unique talent and huge enthusiasm to the job. With her at the helm, the future is looking very bright for the YJF.’
Sarah David, new YJF Director: ‘Having seen how the foundation has grown under the previous director I’m incredibly excited and honoured to be able to lead the YJF into the next chapter and help it go from strength to strength coming up with innovative ways to keep the YJF relevant and engaging with more young people and the wider community. I believe deeply that children need to be taught the value of giving back to their community and I want to continue to use Yoni’s legacy to give young people a deeper sense of pride and responsibility.’
