- Students from Hillel Academy, after hearing Tamir speak
- On Sunday January 13th, 2012 Tamir was in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the Federation’s day of community learning, sponsored by the Coalition for Jewish Learning, and held at the JCC. The teens and children who heard Tamir speak and participated in his basketball clinics gave him rave reviews! Steve Baruch, Executive Director of the Coalition for Jewish Learning concurred with their opinion, stating, “We had a great day!”
One piece of advice Tamir relayed to the audience was not to be complacent, but to continue to move forward when faced with either challenges or success. “If you try to focus on reacting in a productive way to situations both good and bad, then you will be moving in the right direction,” Tamir told the kids, and then used specific examples from his life to expound on this point.
