Join us during this special service as we honor and celebrate our congregation’s commitment to inclusion at all levels of our community.

Talia Tzour Avner will address the congregation about Special-in-Uniform, an innovative program sponsored by Jewish National Fund that aims to integrate young people with autism and other special needs into the IDF. After their service, Special in Uniform helps usher its graduates toward a self-sufficient life, through employment or other meaningful societal involvement.


Talia Tzour Avner: Jewish National Fund, Chief Israel Emissary

A Sabra born in Jerusalem, Ms. Avner served in the Israeli Defense Forces as a sergeant in the Nachal Brigade, and helped establish a new community in the Galilee, Tziv’on.  She earned her degrees from the Hebrew University in International Relations and Sociology, and then in Business Management.  She continues the Zionist legacy of her family, who made Aliyah from all over the world to fulfill their part in establishing the State of Israel.

With more than 27 years of dedicated service, Talia Tzour-Avner has played an instrumental role in implementing the Zionist vision for the land and people of Israel.  As Jewish National Fund’s Chief Israel Emissary, Talia fosters a close connection between the American Jewish community, the Israeli people, and KKL and JNF operations.  She is responsible for overseeing JNF’s Task Forces on water solutions and cutting-edge development of Israel’s Arava region.
