Aviad Yaffe has begun his work as Director General of the Jewish Agency. He replaced Moshe Rivlin, who became chairman of the Jewish National Fund Directorate. Yaffe, 54, has been a Knesset member since 1972, but he is not running for the next Knesset so he can “devote his time to the new position,” he said. Since 1971 he served as coordinator of funds recruiting for special projects, commonly known as the Sapir Fund, named after the late Finance Minister, Pinhas Sapir.
