Principal of TALI Oranim school in Yokneam to receive Genger Prize for Excellence

Yaffa Oknin, principal of the TALI Oranim school in Yokneam, will receive the Genger Prize for Excelence in TALI Education at a ceremony in Jerusalem on Wednesday evening.

The TALI school system, a Hebrew acronym for "enriched Jewish studies," is a network of schools that provides pluralistic Jewish Studies programs in 260 public schools and pre-schools throughout Israel, comprising over 10 percent of all secular public schools in Israel.

Oknin has been the principal at the Oranim school for 16 years and in a conversation with the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday, she said that what makes the TALI system special is that "the main message is working on the values of Zionism, democracy, and Judaism."
