"Integrating Young People with Disabilities into the IDF and Israeli Society"

Featuring Guest Speaker: Lt. Col. (Res.) Tiran Attia

Lt. Col. (Res.) Tiran Attia, Director, Special in Uniform

Lieutenant Colonel (Res.) Tiran Attia is the Director of Special in Uniform, a JNF partner and innovative program which integrates young men and women with disabilities into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Special in Uniform goes beyond the walls of IDF bases, helping its graduates integrate into the workforce and Israeli society in meaningful ways. The work JNF does for people with disabilities and special needs helps ensure that everyone, regardless of individual challenges, is able to feel that they are not only supported, but that they belong. During his 28-year IDF career, Lt. Col. Attia commanded a tank, the Technology and Logistics training program, and the Sar-El program for army volunteers.
