Just as our volunteer Board of Directors welcomes Jared Shore and Jordan Balaban as Co-Presidents, we also acknowledge Yannai Segal's move to Past-President and thank him for his tireless work over the last three years. Yannai has given generously of his talent and time for the betterment of our community. He has stewarded us through some challenging times, not the least of which was the onset of the current pandemic. You will have likely seen Yannai at many community events over the years, and certainly have read some of his insightful messages. We thank the entire Segal family for enabling Yannai to give so much of himself, and we are certain he will continue to contribute in meaningful ways to Jewish Calgary. We will find an appropriate time and way to recognize Yannai at a future event. In the meantime, we all say Todah Rabah and Yasher Koach!
