As producer and host of the new weekly podcast, “At Home in Jerusalem” on Aish.com, and former producer and host of “The Modern Jewish Home” show on Israel News Talk Radio, Heather Dean elevates her talents and experience from her pre-Aliyah years in Manhattan as a premiere entertainment journalist to her career as an author, media producer and public speaker in the Holy Land.
It was in Manhattan that Heather’s long career as a successful interviewer took off, having conducted hundreds of celebrity interviews for such popular magazines and television networks as MTV, the Associated Press, People Magazine, and E! Entertainment Television. Her long roster of celebrity interviews included the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Natalie Portman, Johnny Depp, Sean Penn and many more.
More than sixteen years ago, Heather chose to leave that life behind and instead live a more meaningful life in Israel with her husband. Today she is back to on-air interviewing, but now talks with the “stars” of the Jewish world. Heather also frequently speaks with schools and groups about interviewing, about her exciting experiences in the celebrity world, and why she ultimately embraced her life in Israel.
She has written a book, “Searching for Heather Dean”, about her intriguing and unique journey, due to be published later this year.
