Ayelet appointed chair of research committee of TV & radio regulatory body

Ayelet has been appointed chair of the research committee of the “Second Authority for Television and Radio”, the public authority that supervises commercial broadcasting in Israel.

For more information, see the related story on Hebrew news website Walla!, where Ayelet was quoted as saying:

“I have special interest in supporting processes that will make the Israeli media a more reliable source of information about health and science, and I am sure that for that purpose, it would be helpful to know what’s being done in this area in other countries, and to gauge public opinion in Israel on this topic.”

It’s a girl! (#2)

Wishing you the very best. May she bring you many years of joy and delight! ♥
