Shoshana Samuels serves as a Yoetzet Halacha for Congregations Netivot Shalom, Rinat Yisrael & Shaare Tefillah and the broader Teaneck community. Shoshana studied in Nishmat’s Keren Ariel program in Yerushalayim and earned a masters in Jewish Studies at Ben Gurion University of the Negev. Prior to her time in Israel she studied at Stern College and in the Graduate Program for Advanced Talmudic Studies, also at Yeshiva University.
Shoshana found the intensity of the traditional studies at Migdal Oz, where she studied post-high school, Stern College, GPATS and Nishmat to be invigorating and inspiring. It has been even more thrilling to use the thorough education to strengthen women, marriages and families and the observance of halakha for the Teaneck community.
