Joanna Landau
Founder & CEO

Joanna Landau is a Brit by birth and an Israeli by choice. She has both a BA and an MA in Law from Cambridge University, and holds an MBA, cum laude, from the Herzlia Interdisciplinary Center in Israel. She started her career in high tech as a lawyer, but quickly shifted into the business side and established two Internet startups. 2009 was a turning point for Joanna, when she decided to close her business and pour her endless energy and passion into the nonprofit world, which led her to establish Vibe Israel. She has been leading the organization ever since, expanding its growth with her amazing team, testing new ground and welcoming a good challenge! Her efforts have not gone unnoticed, and in 2015 she was shortlisted for the Rappaport Prize for a Change Making Woman, and in 2017 she was listed by Forbes Israel as one of the 50 Most Influential Women in Israel. 

Joanna lives, breathes and dreams all things Vibe Israel, but when she's not, you may find her attending a meeting of the International Education Committee of Taglit-Birthright of which she has been a member since 2016, or an event at Tel Aviv University, as a Governor. Or, she's home in Tel Aviv, serving as sous-chef to her husband as he prepares a BBQ that Webber would be proud of, for their three kids.

Tamar Saphir
Director of Vibe Tours
 
Tamar has been working at Vibe Israel since 2016. After having "the best job in Israel" for two years (being a tour manager at Vibe Israel) she's excited to take on the role of Director of Vibe Tours and to pass the tour managing torch to the next generation. Tamar is in charge of all tours and events hosting digital influencers on incredible and unique tours of Israel.

Prior to joining Vibe Israel, Tamar had given up the idea of having a career in jazz music and gained social media marketing experience while working as an accounts manager in digital advertising companies. 

When she's not thinking about tours, influencers and food, she studies Communications and History in The Open University, walks her dog Bambi and thinks about what to eat for dinner.
