Vivian Bercovici served as Canada's Ambassador to Israel 2014-16. A former Toronto lawyer, she resides most of the year in Tel Aviv where she is engaged in business consulting, as a columnist for several media in Israel, the U.S. and Canada. She is an active public speaker in both English and Hebrew, which she speaks fluently. And she revels in what passes for "winter" in Israel.
