Please join us in a conversation with Esti Zakheym, Chairwoman of the Israeli Actors/Actresses Guild, two-time winner of the Ophir (Israeli Academy Award), teacher, volunteer, and officiant for non-religious marriages in Israel. Esti will tell us her fascinating personal story, and about the passion for a better Israel that has led to a life of cultural and political activism.

Born in Tel Aviv, Esti Zakheym is part of a family of volunteers and activists. Her grandfather, Moshe Frankel, was one of the founders of Magen David Adom (Israel’s national emergency medical service); her mother is the president of the Lilach Foundation for Children at Risk in Tel-Aviv. 

Esti has appeared in over fifty films, tv series and theatrical productions. She won her Ophirs for roles in Pick a Card and Leylasede and was nominated for Bonjour Monsieur Shlomi. She also teaches acting and directing and conducts workshops in nursing homes, mental institutions, and rehabilitation homes for former inmates.

As chairwoman of the Actors/ Actresses Guild, Esti works tirelessly to improve the quality of life for Israel’s acting community. She is also a key player in Israel’s rich art scene.

Since 2003 Esti has officiated at marriage ceremonies for those who do not want or cannot get married through the Rabanut, including straight and LGBTQ couples.
