NYC: NIF’s Tehila Nachalon Friedman
March 28 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Tehila Nachalon Friedman: The Struggle for the Soul of Religious Zionism.
Tehila Nachalon Friedman runs the leadership development center at Kolot, creating a multicultural leadership for applying Jewish values to Israeli society. She is a graduate of the Mandel School for Educational Leadership. Previously, she ran the Israel office of the MetroWest Federation and the Jewish culture department at Yad Hanadiv. Tehila was an advisor to Natan Sharansky in his post as Minister of Diaspora, Social, and Jerusalem Affairs. She was a founder of the Yerushalmim Movement and the Jerusalem Coalition, and was chair of the board of Ne’emanei Torah Va’Avodah. Tehila holds an LL.M. from the Hebrew University and received an extensive post-secondary religious education at several institutions. She lives in Jerusalem and is the mother of five. Tehila is a Senior Shaharit Fellow and heads the “From Tribalism to Solidarity” group of National Religious leaders at Shaharit.
Shaharit is a thinktank, leadership incubator, and program development hub that promotes a new take on Israeli liberalism and its role in Israeli society. We bring together Israelis from diverse ethnic, religious and sociological backgrounds to create a different kind of Israeli politics: what we call an ethos of the common good, which begins with strong relationships and building trust, and then reaches out to other stakeholders with humility, a genuine desire to listen, and a firm belief that dialogue must transform everyone in the room. We run dozens of programs, ranging from leadership development in Israeli Arab towns, to cutting-edge surveys of Ultra-Orthodox Jews, to community organizing in local municipalities, to our flagship “120” program that cultivates the next generation of Israeli national leaders.
