Shalom Austin’s Inspired Aging Shabbat

May 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


We are excited that these monthly Inspired Aging Shabbats are now in person and look forward to seeing you! This month, meet Michal Ilai, Shalom Austin’s Senior Israel Educator. Register today!

Michal Bio: Michal Ilai is a Sabra (native Israeli) whose love for teaching was ignited during her time in the IDF. After completing her military service, in 1990 Michal moved to Austin, attended the University of Texas and facilitated the first Ulpan-style modern Hebrew class open to the entire community at Texas Hillel. She also taught Hebrew and Jewish Studies at Temple Beth Israel, while studying to get her degree in Public Relations. Michal’s ardent Zionism and interest in all things Israel led her to a career in Israel education where she developed programs, initiatives and partnerships focused on Jewish peoplehood. After over twenty years away from Texas, Michal moved back to Austin to be close to family. She is ready to bring together Israeli and Jewish Americans to explore their Jewish identities and shared story. Michal holds a Master’s degree in Jewish Professional Studies from Gratz College, and Gratz’s certificate of Hebrew Instruction with a particular interest in the field of error in second language acquisition. In her free time Michal loves to cook with her three adult kids, entertain and snack on dry roasted nuts.
