Sarah Idit (Susan) Schneider
Founding director of A Still Small Voice, a correspondence school that provides weekly teachings in classic Jewish wisdom to subscribers around the world. Susan has also written a book called Kabbalistic Writings on the Nature of Masculine and Feminine which is soon to be published by Jason Aronson, Inc. In addition she has produced a small booklet called, Eating as Tikun, and another called PurimBursts. Sarah Idit has published three journal articles in B'Or HaTorah called, "Evolution, Form and Consciousness," "The Underside of Creative Expression," and "The Daughters of Tslafcahad, Toward a Methodology of Attitude Around Women's Issues." An expanded version of the latter article appears in an anthology titled, Torah of the Mothers: Contemporary Jewish Women Read Classical Jewish Texts produced by Urim Publications.
Susan has a bachelor's degree in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from the University of Colorado in Boulder and before immigrating to Israel worked as Laboratory Researcher for Celestial Seasonings' Herb Tea Company. She subscribes to several scientific journals in order to stay current with developments in the field. Many of her Torah writings utilize scientific analogies, and she has written several articles on the reconciliation of Torah with evolutionary theory.
Susan has pursued the study and practice of religion, meditation and comparative mysticism since the early seventies and since 1981 has lived in Jerusalem and followed an orthodox path of observance. She studied at Neve Yerushalayim and completed the advanced learning program there. She wrote and studied privately with Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, a noted teacher of Hassidut and Kabbala. She continues to consult him when questions arise in her writing, study, and teaching.
Susan currently resides in Jerusalem's Old City and teaches privately to individuals or small groups seeking to work with text in depth and in a deeply personal way.
She can be contacted through her Still Small Voice website, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
