He was a friendly and charismatic person, a very respected patient advocate of our member patient organisation Amen of Israel. In the hectic starting period of merging two organisations in a new one, Yacob brought common sense to the table, he was an oasis in a dessert on the board: he didn’t put himself first and thought about the bigger picture. It was an absolute privilege to have him as a board member, and his wisdom and kindness will be missed by many.
We wish for his wife Nitza and his family a lot of strength in these difficult times.
