Inbar Tabib was born in Israel to a Yemenite/Persian family.

Her father was disabled as a young child, and both her parents served as role models for coping with challenges.

When she was 5, her family relocated to Chicago, where she spent the rest of her childhood.

Although Inbar grew up in a traditional home and went to Jewish schools,

at the age of 18 she left home in every sense of the word.

She returned to Israel, joined the army, and stopped keeping the Torah laws.

She began recording an album with another artist, and became an airline hostess on El Al.

When her boyfriend started showing interest in studying in a Yeshiva and becoming religious,

she gave him an ultimatum: "the Yeshiva or me." He chose the Yeshiva, and she broke up with him.

It was his mother who drew Inbar back to her heritage, triggering many hours of soul-searching, questioning, and inner struggles.

Now a singer-songwriter who performs only for women, Inbar has finally found fulfillment and satisfaction in her life,

and is following her dreams.
