founder and volunteer CEO

A Woman of many talents, social entrepreneur, has a black belt in judo and a mother of five, senior facilitator and experienced speaker in conferences, in-house training days and seminars throughout Israel and the world. Her positions as the CEO of the association are full-time and as a senior instructor, she has been a full-time volunteer for nearly 15 years. Social entrepreneurship, volunteering, giving to the community and empowering people and women who need strengthening and support are an integral part of the life and worldview of Yehudit from the dawn of her childhood. Her life's work and the crowning glory of her social involvement was the establishment of the "El HaLev" organization in 2003. In 2018, she received an award from the Ministry of Social Equality for her work in the fight against violence against women.

"I believe children who know how to protect themselves, set boundaries and respect boundaries, will become adults who respect and protect others also."

Coordinator of Early Childhood in the Private Sector.

"As an educator for many years, and a mother of three boys who were involved in martial arts, I can see how education and martial arts go side-by-side. It paves a new path that helps overcome obstacles and allows everyone to express their voice in their own way. El HaLev is a place that offers this innovative path and my hope is that this winning combination will come to fruition more and more.."
