Temple Emanuel Brotherhood Presents:
Start-Up Nation: From Desert to Oasis
with Talia Tzour-Avner
With 60% of the country in a desert and despite a rapidly growing population, Israel has been jumping ahead of the water-innovation curve for decades.
Learn from Jewish National Fund’s leading expert and Chief Israel Emissary, Talia Tzour-Avner, how JNF has increased Israel’s water economy by 12% by developing alternative water resources, saving the country millions, improving water quality, and advancing Israeli agriculture to make the desert bloom.
Free and Open to the entire Temple Emanuel Community
