I have been told many times that my passion for the field is infectious and that my relentless pursuit in trying to find the “secrets to success” from up-to-date research has actually become an obsession,” says Shifi.

- Called in sick to work and then bumped into the boss out for lunch with friends
- Fell asleep on the window of a Chareidi bus in Israel and the woman behind me pulled open the shade, which Shaitel was stuck on… next thing I know it’s dangling from the window shade up on top
