Bais Yaakov Graduate is a Pilot for El Al and Flies Netanyhu to Summit in Greece


El Al’s first female Charedi Orthodox pilot flew Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a summit in Greece.

Nechama Spiegel Novak, a mother of four who has been flying for the national carrier since earlier this year, left Ben Gurion International Airport on Wednesday morning guiding a chartered Boeing 737 to Thessaloniki, where Netanyahu is participating in a trilateral summit with Greece and Cyprus.

All this to support her kollel family.
Does not get any better.
Also, she may get some extra stipends for all kollel 'ingeh'laht' by having a positive influence on Natanyahu.
What a Zi'chis.

what an amazing women. She is reluctant to grant interviews...is this due to a sense of modesty on her part- she doesn't want to boast of her success? Or does she fear retribution and condemnation for being so independent and entering such a "goyish" profession?

What exactly is "goyish" about being a pilot?

She doesn't appear chareidi to me. Hair uncovered, no shaytel. And wearing that uniform would probably get you stoned in Meah Shearim.

Because it is yichud when she flies with a male copilot behind a locked cockpit door
