Why does Talma exist? In this episode we spoke with the people who help to make Talma happen: foundation leaders, leaders of nonprofits, organizers and directors and leaders in education. These aren’t people who participate in Talma, or personally benefit from it and who so deeply believe in the mission of this program that they’re willing to devote their time, energy and, in some cases, finances, just so that other people–you, teachers from around the world, and thousands of children around the nation of Israel–can reap the benefit. That’s why, when we ask the question “why does Talma exist”, these are the folks we need to ask. It exists because of them.
