Join Jewish National Fund and Voice4Israel for a Zoom program to celebrate the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and learn how JNF helps those with special needs and disabilities experience the pride and patriotism that comes with serving their country and playing an integral role in protecting Israel.
Featuring Guest Speakers
Lt. Col. (Res.) Tiran Attia
Director, Special in Uniform
Lt. Col. (Res.) Tiran Attia serves as Director of Special in Uniform, an innovative program sponsored by Jewish National Fund that aims to integrate young people with autism and other disabilities into the IDF and, in turn, into Israeli society. After their service, Special in Uniform helps usher its graduates toward a self-sufficient life, through employment or other meaningful societal involvement, once they are discharged from the army.
Over the course of his distinguished 28-year career in the Israel Defense Forces, Lt. Col. Attia commanded a tank, the IDF's Technology and Logistics Forces training program, and the Sar-El program for army volunteers from around the world.
