WoW President: Mrs. Chaya Abrams
Mrs. Abrams functions as the entry point for all services of WoW. Whenever a need for services of WoW is identified, she is the initial contact person. She assesses the need and determines which committees will be involved and to what extent.
As she follows the progress as each need is being met, she also ensures that there is no overlapping of efforts. It is important to bear in mind that the committees should not be appealed to directly for their respective services, but rather only through Mrs. Abrams.
In addition, she is the individual who oversees each committee to make sure that it is operating properly in its respective function, and facilitates adjustment to each committee as needed.
