Congregation Shaarey Zedek is pleased to introduce our new Program Director and Lay Clergy Member, Tali Millo.

Tali will be working to create virtual and in-person events such as Shabbat Dinners and Social-Cultural Celebrations like the Purim Carnival and Pesach Seder. Her work extends into our Ritual department and will include coordinating special services such as Simchat Torah, General Monash Remembrance Commemoration, and Tisha B’Av. As a member of the Lay Clergy team, she will also tutor B’nai/B’not Mitzvah students, read Torah on Shabbat and weekday services, and will be one of our Minyan Daveners.

Tali comes to us with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Winnipeg, also from the University of Alberta, where she graduated with a major in Political Science and a minor in International Studies.

With professional experience in the private sector as well as lifelong involvement in the Jewish community of Winnipeg and beyond, Tali is an exceptional new member of our team. In her last career role, she was the Operations Manager and General Manager for 529 Wellington Steakhouse, where she managed small-to-large scale functions from weddings to events for clients, such as the Winnipeg Jets and Habitat for Humanity. During the pandemic, she coordinated virtual dinners and wine and food delivery hundreds of attendees on behalf of non-profit clients including St. Boniface Hospital, The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and the Young Presidents’ Association.

Within the Jewish Community, she has been active over the years with BB Camp, both as a camper and as a Section Head, was a fellow of Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee (CJPAC), and has volunteered with Hillel, BBYO, Jewish Child and Family Services (JCFS), The Friendship Circle at Chabad, and Congregation Shaarey Zedek. Her family has been long-time members of the shul, and she has been involved over the years as a Torah and Haftarah reader for Yom Tov, events such as the Purim Shpiel, and as a member of our former choir.

“We are thrilled to have someone with the skills, passion, experience, and personal connection to the synagogue serving in a leadership role with the Congregation. I am very much looking forward to Tali’s contributions to our team.” – Ran Ukashi, Executive Director

“Tali brings a depth and breadth of experience in many areas to the Shaarey Zedek community. She has a wide variety of skills for engagement, teaching, collaboration and education that will further strengthen our team, and I welcome her expertise and look forward to growing the SZ network. Welcome Tali - I'm excited for the things to come with you as our newest team member!” – Rabbi Anibal Mass, Spiritual Leader
