The Leket Family

The Right Stuff

Born in Jerusalem, son of former Israeli emissaries who served in the U.S; raised in the Israeli Youth Movement; nine years a pilot and flight instructor in the Israeli Air Force; eight years a high school teacher and mentor for youth-at-risk in Tel Aviv; an educator with a Master’s of Philosophy; what better creds for our emissary from Israel, Yiftah Leket?

Thank You Detroit

Looking back on everything I’ve done, and all of the remarkable people who have touched my heart, I feel so proud and fulfilled. It might not have been a full year but it will definitely stay with me for years to come.
