Rivi was born in Bat-Yam Israel, and was educated in the Orthodox Jewish tradition. She served in the Israeli Defense Forces during the Six-Day-War in 1967, and was part of the reserves in the 1973 Yom Kippur war.
Impacted deeply by her time in the IDF, Rivi developed an interest in other religions, and left Israel to study abroad. While spending several months at the Dr. Francis Schaeffer Center L’Abri, in the Swiss Alps, Rivi developed a great interest in the Gospels, realizing the intricate connection to the Jewish tradition.
Rivi now resides in Southern California where she continues to teach and is working on the final volumes of her work, Presenting Jesus Son of Israel, a Jewish Commentary on the Gospels.
