Protecting our Families, Communities and First-Responders from Terrorism— Advice from an Israeli Security Expert

ZOA West Coast is hosting veteran Israeli security expert, Marc Provisor, for a series of presentations throughout Northern California for Zionists of all faiths and our local law enforcement, at all levels. The programs share a common theme of exploring Israeli security best practices in countering the threat from radical Islamic terrorism. 

Marc Provisor is a security expert from Israel's Samaria Region and currently serves as a Security Consultant focusing on Counter Terror Mitigation. He was personally involved in combating terrorist attacks at "ground level" on a daily basis as the Chief Army Security Coordinator in the region from 1996 through 2006. His counter-terror skills earned him recognition from the Israeli security establishment, including the Award of Excellence and Valor from the IDF Central Command General. He has also provided counsel to the United States Department of Homeland Security and continues to lecture on various security and counter-terror issues facing security professionals today. Marc's unique firsthand experiences and expertise have led him to formulate the views that he shares during his critically important presentations. Marc continues to work with various organizations in the field of Security and Emergency Response against terror.

The intent of this educational program is to help us protect ourselves from the devastating global spread of the terrorism which threatens Israel, the Middle East, and Western countries. Please direct all inquiries for these events to ZOA West Coast Executive Director, David Kadosh, by emailing dkadosh@zoa.org or calling (510) 990-6712.
