A Sneak Peek Inside the MyHeritage HQ

MyHeritageHQThe MyHeritage Blog has an article that provides a quick peek at the company’s business offices. MyHeritage began in Founder and CEO Gilad Japhet’s living room in Bnei Atarot, a village founded by the Templers. Then for several years the company’s headquarters were located in a Templer family estate and farmhouse in the same village. This picturesque setting is where the company grew from 2 to 70 employees.

The company now has three offices in Israel; the main office in Or Yehuda, and two others in Tel Aviv. MyHeritage also has two offices in the US; one in Lehi, Utah, and another in Burbank, California, home of the Geni team.

NOTE: MyHeritage also is the sponsor of this newsletter. I have been fortunate enough to visit two of those offices, including the offices in Or Yehuda, Israel, that are pictured in the article. The company seems to have a very relaxed working atmosphere that fosters productivity.

‘Templer’ ? Is this the order that we Brits would know as Knights Templar ? If so, is it another example of the difference between a US and UK spelling ?
“Britain and America – two countries separated by a common language – Winston Churchill”.


Peter, I had the same reaction as you when I first read this so thanks for the clarification Dick. That’s my nugget of new knowledge for the day!
