NEW YORK (JTA) — The top-ranking professional at the Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem will resign.
Dr. Shlomo Mor-Yosef, the director general of Hadassah hospital, will resign once his current contract is up in about a year, Hadassah officials told JTA following a report about the resignation in the Jerusalem Post. Mor-Yosef, a gynecologist by training, has held the position since 2001 and was the spokesman for the hospital when Israel’s Prime Minister Ariel Sharon fell victim to a massive stroke four years ago.
Mor-Yosef’s resignation comes on the heels of the resignations of two high-ranking officials at Hadassah’s Zionist youth group, Young Judaea.
Young Judaea’s director, Rabbi Ramie Arian, and the director of its Year Course program, Keith Berman, announced they were stepping down following a series of funding cuts and layoffs at the organization, the Jerusalem Post reported.
