Yael Valier found her Israeli theater beginning in the Raise Your Spirits Theatre company sixteen years ago and has since gone on to write, act, and direct for various Jerusalem companies. In 2016, Yael founded the Jerusalem-based Theater and Theology company, in which she combines her experience in theater and her interest in the beauties and quirks of religion to bring Jerusalem audiences meaningful entertainment both during
productions and in post-performance discussions with the audience. (See www.TheaterAndTheology.com for details of her latest production.)
