SHIRA HERZOG 1953-2014
Chair of the Board of Directors PFC 2009-2011
Executive Director of the Kahanoff Foundation, 1987-2012
We are very sad to note the untimely passing of Shira Herzog on August 25, 2014. Shira was a remarkable woman. As a leader of the Kahanoff Foundation, a director and Chair of PFC, and in so many other areas, she distinguished herself by her vision, her incisiveness, her deft management of issues and people, her piercing intelligence and her deep commitment to philanthropy. We and all her colleagues in the world of Canadian philanthropy will miss her deeply.
