Second Vice-President and Shabbat School Chair, Temple B’nai Tikvah
Yaara immigrated from Israel with her family in early 2000, making Calgary their new home. They joined Temple a few years after their arrival. Soon after, Yaara became a board member and the “room mom” for all Shabbat School kids.
Outside her roles at Temple, Yaara works as a physiotherapist and drives her two children to all their activities. The Reform Judaism community in Calgary has attracted Yaara and her family with its inclusiveness and openheartedness. Yaara sees her position on the Board of Trustees as an opportunity to give something back. Although Yaara is the one who sits on the board, all who know her can attest that it’s a family commitment.
