About Dov Ber
Shalom friends. (I never understand why people write about themselves in the third person when they put their profile on their website. So I'm not going to do that). I grew up in London, England before getting a degree in Philosophy from Manchester University. After graduating I decided to see the world, discover what life is all about and then create something based on what was found. For the next six years I traveled and worked in various countries in Asia; Sri Lanka, Thailand, Nepal, India, Jeju Island, Japan to name a few, supporting myself by teaching English and Buddhist philosophy. I spent most of my time in meditation retreats, yoga courses, martial art schools and temples, learning to control my body and mind.
In 2007 I arrived in Israel and finally connected to the deep wisdom of the Torah and the Jewish Sages throughout the generations. I learnt in Yeshiva for many years in which time I also set up a Tikkun Olam Organisation, All for the Kids. Projects included a 40 day fundraising walk down the entire length of Israel which raised $18,000 for vulnerable children around the world and a project in India engaging Israeli backpackers in volunteer work and personal growth workshops.
I'm was Founder/Director of Self Discovery, an organisation which provided meaningful, experiential programming for trips coming to Israel and Director of Education for Justifi, an organization which still runs volunteer and leadership training trips to Thailand (www.justifi.org).
My first book, Mastering Life: A Unique Guidebook to Jewish Enlightenment was published last year. (Buy it here)
Baruch Hashem I live in Jerusalem with my wife (who is an amazing artist, energy healer, aromatherapist and yoga teacher) and our pretty cool kids. I qualified as a Rabbi and used to train people martial arts in the park when I actually had some free time.
My passion is to empower Jewish people to connect to themselves, their purpose, the Torah and Hashem.
My goal is to be like my Rebbe, HILP - High Impact, Low Profile.
