Yaron Neudorfer, the Jewish Agency for Israel's chief financial officer, on Tuesday announced his decision to leave the position he has held for six-and-a-half years.
"It's been six excellent years but the time has come to move on," he said over the phone. Over the past two years the Jewish organization has undergone serious changes expanding its scope of operations to include Jewish education and restructuring large parts of its bureaucracy. "JAFI is undergoing changes and there will always be those who like it and those that dislike it but my decision has nothing to do with that," he said. JAFI spokesman Haviv Rettig Gur said Neudorfer's departure was amicable. "He is one of the most brilliant CFOs in the industry and has faced all sorts of different problems but he has kept us balanced," he said.
