Join Jewish National Fund-USA in New England and the Capital Region as we recognize Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month with an inside look at Special in Uniform (SIU). This life-changing program integrates youth with disabilities into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), prepares them for careers following their army service and makes them feel like they belong in Israeli society.
Featuring Major (Res.) Tiran Attia, who serves as director of Jewish National Fund-USA affiliate Special in Uniform, an innovative program that integrates 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 30-year career in the Israel Defense Forces, 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.+ More... - Less...
