New needs! New projects! Talia Trust adapts to the times. We are arranging our annual school meetings on Zoom app to maintain social distancing and reduce travel. We have been approached by a High School in the Krayot (Greater Haifa). Discussions are underway for a possible new project there. Another approach is from a school in Tirat Carmel where we previously had a project.
New on the website. Go to Testimonials and see more examples of what projects, students, and friends have written about us.
"Thank you for your excellent good work during these difficult times for all. Kol Hakavod!" 4/2020
"It's incredibly encouraging to. hear directly from students about how TTFC's (Talia Trust for Children) funding has benefited their education and future prospects"
Returning to normal in partial lockdown, Talia Trust is once again being asked for approvals for psycho-didactic testing by high schools as testing can now take place. All the children are so enthusiastic and are enjoying their small group lessons in our projects which have restarted in three out of the four primary schools
We are using the Zoom app to hold committee meetings to maintain social distancing and reduce travel.
Here Avital Kessler from Kiryat Shemona is teaching one of her students from her unique program.

Almost without notice, 20 March has arrived. Ranit and I were supposed to be, right now, in the midst of running the 10km at the annual Jerusalem Marathon. It's been 4 years since we both ran this far. Last time, I set an ambitious time target and so I quickly ran ahead of Ranit. Beyond the scenery and the special atmosphere of the Jerusalem Marathon, this race has become a kind of memorial event for my late sister Talia, who was killed in a car accident 15 years ago.
Every year we run in the Jerusalem Marathon, we, and other good and dear friends, donate to the Talia Trust for Children, founded by Talia's parents in her memory, fundraising for children with learning difficulties from disadvantaged families. The Jerusalem Marathon is a high point in donations to the Talia Trust and much of its activity relies on donations collected during this period by good people running with T-shirts of the Talia Trust - both from their personal donations and from their friends' donations.
This year, this significant source of income has been eliminated. I call here to those who are financially capable, not to forget the needy, who will certainly not decrease during the Corona crisis, and donate as much as you can to the Talia Trust for Children.
You can donate easily and quickly on this link: https://my.israelgives.org/en/campaign/TaliaTrustMarathon
It is important to note that all members of the Talai Trust are volunteers.
We should share good news! Shabbat Shalom to you all
Behind the scenes, Talia Trust volunteers are following up individual requests and visiting potential new projects. In addition, with on-going projects, volunteers are checking the progress of applications and students' improvements. Meanwhile many Talia Trust volunteers have been busy training and raising funds for their entry in the Jerusalem Marathon. Now that the event has been postponed until October, fundraisers will be in touch with donors individually.
Getting ready for 2020.
Join / support the Talia Trust Team in the Jerusalem Marathon on Friday 20 March 2020. More details will follow on our Talia Trust Facebook page and here on our website (Activities/Upcoming events) where you can also revisit highlights from previous marathons and other events (Past Events).
