Mrs. Sivan Rahav Meir is a bona fide Israeli celebrity. A journalist by trade, Mrs. Rahav Meir is renowned as a respected and popular TV news reporter. In her work for channel 2 news, Yedioth Acharonot and IDF radio, she has interviewed heads of state including Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres and Rav Ovadia Yosef, and uncovered exclusive stories of great import in Israel. But there’s another side to Sivan Rahav Meir: she is also a teacher of Torah with students numbering in the tens of thousands and whose weekly parsha shiur boasts literally hundreds in attendance.
Rahav Meir has authored four books on subjects ranging from Israeli youth to media to Torah. Her first work in English is #Parasha: Weekly Insights from a Leading Israeli Journalist. (Yes, the hashtag is part of the title!) Translated from her bestselling book in Hebrew, the work applies Rahav Meir’s extensive life experience to the weekly Torah portion, creating timely and thought-provoking messages.
