Yishrat Lev 2022: Leadership From the Heart

“We have chosen the name Yishrat Lev, a description that comes from the Book of Kings. King Solomon described his father, King David, with this image that connotes integrity which comes from the heart. Those entering our inaugural honor roll have shown their dedication and commitment with integrity that comes from the heart. We are honored by your service and are grateful for your leadership.”

— Laurence Bailen, Board President

At this year’s Annual Gathering in June, we honored our 2022 Yishrat Lev, leaders who recently completed their leadership term and have given their gifts of the heart.
