Einav was born in the southern city Be’er Sheva to Argentinian parents, who made Aliyah with their parents as teenage kids. Since the age of three she traveled around the world due to her fathers job, and found herself in places such as Spain, Singapore and Italy. In all those places Einav felt her strong connection with the Jewish community, and was very involved. In 1998, her family shipped overseas once again, although this time, she couldn’t join them, since she felt her duty towards the IDF was much stronger and served as a travel instructor throughout Israel, guiding soldiers from all different troops around Israel. In 2010 she got her BA degree in Communications and Management and in 2012 she got her MA degree in Organization Development. She is Married to Avshalom (her high school sweetheart) and is a mother to a beautiful boy named Ofir and two daughters named Tamar & Gili.
