The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! Our son Lior recently joined our team as the 10th generation of Family Shapiro to live and work in Jerusalem! Lior attended the first Conservative School in Jerusalem and completed his army service in the Golani unit, continuing to serve in the reserves until just recently.

He majored in Archaeology at the Hebrew University, and worked for over 15 years in the Israel Antiquities Authority, becoming Chief Regional Archaeologist of the Judean area. As well as his expertise in archaeology, Lior brings his passion for photography and his knowledge of Israel and its history to his work as a tour guide. He is married to Tammy, has 3 delicious children (we’re biased – they are our grandchildren!), and lives in the village of Motza Illit on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
