While Nadav is fully committed to his professional life his home life is just as important. He married his wife, Tomoi, in 2007 after meeting through mutual friends. Once Nadav and Tomoi felt ready to become parents they tried for over a year with no success. Ultimately they decided adoption would be the best choice for them and turned their energy towards the adoption process. Tomoi is originally from Japan and wanted to adopt from her home country; shortly after working with an adoption agency there Yael became their first adopted child. Their experience was so rewarding that the couple became eager to adopt a second child. Nadav and Tomoi are both extremely close to both of their children and are proud to share their heritage with them and make sure they are educated and involved in their own cultural heritage as well.
Nadav Zeimer spent his entire professional career finding unique ways in which he could help others. After adopting his children he became even more involved in his community and now specializes in helping at risk children, especially those in the foster care system. Nadav has quickly become the utmost example of bringing positivity into the lives of his students and into his family.
