Who is Hila Klein?
Israeli-American artist Hila Klein was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, on 12 December 1986, under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius. She’s a social media star and artist, while she’s perhaps best known for her and her husband Ethan Klein’s collaborative YouTube channel “h3h3Productions”, which they launched on 20 April 2011. The channel’s currently subscribed to by more than six million people, and numbers over 1.5 billion views of all their videos combined, mostly of comedy content.
Education and early life
Hila’s Israeli Mizrahi Jewish parents raised her in Tel Aviv, alongside her brother Moses Hacmon who’s today working in Israel as a successful photographer; not a lot about Hila’s mother and father is known, because she respects their privacy, while it’s believed that her father was a businessman.
Hila became interested in various kinds of art while attending a local high school in Tel Aviv, while she was mostly into drawing and painting; she also played a couple of sports with her peers, and practiced acting with the school’s drama club.
She matriculated in 2005 and then joined the Israel Defense Forces, as military service is mandatory in Israel for both men and women. Upon completing her service, Hila enrolled at Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2010.
