Yael Ilmer Giron is the 33 year old appointed Jewish Agency Shlicha in Rome, Italy where she has been living for the past 10 months along with her husband Nir and their two year old son, Noam. Yael was born in Israel and prior to coming on Shlichut through Hashomer Hatzair, she worked as project manager in a large Israeli insurance company. Yael also has extensive experience working as a tour guide in Israel. During that time, she gained a deep connection to her homeland and a calling to radiate that love outward as much as she can. She views her schlichut as another way of serving her country and an opportunity to continue spreading her love of Israel to the Jewish community internationally.
