Jews You Should Know

Jan 14, 2019


Mois Navon grew up surfing in southern California. But a series of fortuitous encounters led him to a richer Jewish life, aliyah (immigration) to Israel, and ultimately involvement in a small tech startup called MobileEye. Sixteen years after joining that enterprise, it boasted the largest exit - a 15.3 billion dollar sale to Intel - in Israel's robust startup history.

Along the way, Mois also became the "rabbi of MobileEye," an ordained rabbi and prolific Torah teacher, as well as a public speaker for visiting groups learning about the Jewish State's entrepreneurial culture.
