Ravit Naor

Ravit Naor, 46, was born on an Air Force base where her father servied as a pilot. As an adult she worked as a journalist for the daily newspaper Maariv and had her own TV travel show on Israel’s Channel 10. After being a single mother for 8 years, she married her flight instructor who serves as a pilot in the Israeli Air Force. Ravit lives in Herzliya and has a Masters degree from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. Currently, Ravit continues to write while working as a professional pilot.

Ravit was the first Israeli women to reach the summit of Mont Blanc (4808 meters) - the highest mountain in the Alps,  Kilimanjaro in Africa (5895 meters) and Mount Elbrus (5684 meters) - the highest mountain in Europe.

After nearly 20 years of working as a journalist and having her own TV show, she decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a professional pilot. At the age of 39, as a single mother, she made her dream come true - two months after her father, a well known pilot in the Israeli Air Force, died of cancer, she herself became a pilot.  

Lecture Topics:

 One woman at the end of the world - Ravit Naor brings her story about the Israeli expedition to the North Pole.
How do you leave a seven month old baby and walk to the coldest place on earth? How do you manage with six guys as the tension builds up and you can no longer feel your feet? And why is the Russian option better? All of that and more about the never ending walk to the coldest place on earth.

 The other side of Russia - Ravit Naor was the first Israeli to reach the summit of Mount Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe, which lies in the Caucasus mountain range near the border of Georgia. What happened to the lost Japanese expedition? How does it feel to win over the Nazi's elite forces? And why is it easier to be a woman on a high mountain? 
In her travels, Ravit continued to the eastern corner of Russia where she led an Israeli-Russian expedition that for the first time tried to cross Siberia’s frozen Lake Baykal (the largest lake in the world).   Sleeping with five men in the same sleeping bag…. Surviving an earthquake… And learning how to live with no running water.
