Nechama Sarah Gila Nadborny Burgeman holds a Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi degree in cultural anthropology, with a minor in art history. After traveling the world, Nechama settled in Israel where she attended yeshivas in Safed and Jerusalem, learning from a large array of great teachers. A chassida of the Nadvorna Rebbe zt”l from Bnei Brak, Nechama was privileged to receive life guidance from this renowned tzaddik (righteous person). An avid student, past and present, of Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, Nechama also attended many Shabbatons and lectures by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach z”l and Rav Mordechai Sheinberger. She has studied many Chassidic and Kabbalistic texts, including Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, discourses of the Lubavitcher Rebbes, the Zohar, and the writings of the Ari z”l. Her previous books, The Twelve Dimensions of Israel and Israel and the Seventy Dimensions of the World, were based on knowledge Nechama gained while learning from these Torah masters. Nechama also paints (her artwork plays a prominent role in each of her books) and she plays the harp. She has been living in Israel for the past thirty-one years. Nechama and her husband just built their home on Moshav Tarom, a pastoral and forested area not far from Jerusalem, where she holds retreats for women, teaches, counsels, and continues to write, paint, and play music. She also teaches at Kever Rachel in Bethlehem.
