Tzipi Livni

When deciding which professional path to pursue, Tzipi Livni defied the expectations set by her politically active parents and initially chose a career in law. But sometimes a calling transcends pragmatism, and when Israel found itself split down the middle and rife with tension Tzipi was compelled to change direction and run for office.


Tzipi amassed an impressive array of political roles, most famously, Israel’s Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Justice. Each position was accompanied by a chorus of both praise and criticism for the policies she upheld and decisions she made. Reflecting on significant moments during her tenure, Tzipi concedes that the strategic implementation could have been better. Nonetheless, she affirms her decisions, which were all informed by an unwavering commitment to achieve equity and peace.


Join Gil and 100 itrek participants in this captivating live conversation, where Tzipi’s indomitable spirit and steadfast determination truly shine, cementing her as an undeniable force to be reckoned with.
