Meet Michael, another one of our amazing guest speakers for our next Citizen Talks event coming up next Sunday August 26th. Michael is a master of biochemistry and Plant Biology and has worked in the UK, Germany, USA, Brazil, Switzerland and Israel.
We asked Michael 5 questions so you can get to know him a little better, too.
When and why did you move to Tel Aviv?
My partner was studying in the US, where we met. When she graduated, she returned to Israel. Now I spend half the year in IL and half in the US.

What’s your best advice for internationals living in Tel Aviv?

Where can we find you on a typical Thursday night?
Cinemateque Tel Aviv or Beit Haamudim Jazz Club on Rambam.
What’s your favorite Hebrew word or phrase?
לאט לאט (pronounced le-at, le-at) which means slowly, slowly…
