ANCHOR. Name: G2-Lital Contact

Lital grew up in Tel-Aviv, Israel.  She served for 5 years in the education unit of the IDF and achieved the rank of Officer. Lital trained new immigrants to Israel (Olim), providing them the tools to learn Hebrew, understand the Israeli and Jewish story and become acclimated within Israeli society. The passion for Jewish education led Lital to work for Taglit – Birthright Israel after her army service, study Jewish education in Seminar-Hakibutzim college in Tel-Aviv, and become a Jewish Agency Israel Fellow at Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach, educating and connecting college students to Israel. After three years of bringing Israel to campus, Lital moved on to her next chapter of professional work as Director of Youth and Family Programming at Congregation Kol Tikvah in Parkland. Living in the diaspora has made a great impact on Lital's understanding of the importance of Jewish community; it is a family. Lital is committed to connecting people to people - anywhere.
