SIVAN RAHAV-MEIR is one of the most popular media personalities in Israel today. She is a primetime anchor on Channel 2 News; has a column in Israel’s largest newspaper, Yediot Aharonot; and has a weekly radio show on Galei Tzahal (Army Radio). Originally from a secular Israeli family, Rahav-Meir became religiously observant during her teens. She is one of the very few public intellectuals who is well respected across the religious-secular spectrum, and has attracted a tremendous following on social media for her Torah-infused, family-centered insights into Jewish life and tradition. Her lectures in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem attract over one thousand people every week.
Ms. Rahav-Meir has a BA in Political Science and Management from Tel Aviv University. She lives in Jerusalem with her husband, media personality Yedidya Meir, and their five children.
