Efrat Giat was a successful tour guide until, at the age of 36, she decided to marry a shepherd from Ein Kerem.

Giat and her husband quickly started having children – afraid she would be too old to have a large family. After the first four of her now five children were born, she realized she could no longer work outside the home. She assumed this meant giving up her once exciting career.
