Our Staff

Since Yad L’Achim is funded solely by contributions, we must run a very tight ship. We maintain a small paid staff supplemented by a large volunteer corps. Our staffers must combine professionalism with selfless dedication and an ability to operate under pressure.

Each department is staffed with professionals who have been trained to deal with its specific area of responsibility.

For instance, the staff of the counter-missionary and counter-cult department has delved deeply into the intricacies of many cults, and learnt about their origins, beliefs and tactics. They have received special training in how to help Jews who have been brainwashed. Staffers and volunteers must both be on call around the clock.
