A Remarkable Couple
Shalom Yoran-Sznycer was a key figure in developing Israeli Aircraft Industries in Israel, and served as chairman of a private commercial aircraft company in New York City until his retirement in 2003. He is the author of The Defiant, which recounts his escape from the Nazis who murdered his parents in Poland, and his teenage years fighting alongside Soviet partisans in the forests of Eastern Europe in World War II. The Yorans’ friend Elie Weisel calls the memoir an important contribution to Holocaust remembrance.
Varda Yoran, an accomplished sculptor who works in stone, wood, clay, wax, and Lucite, has participated in numerous group shows and solo exhibits around the world. The first twenty years of her life were spent in China where she was born to Jewish parents who had emigrated from Russia. Her lifelong exposure to a conglomerate of cultures — Chinese, Russian, English, Jewish, Japanese — can be felt in her art. TAU has been the recipient of several of her striking sculptures including the 11-foot granite “Tai Chi” and the 6-foot bronze “Holocaust and Revival.”
