Born and raised in Orlando, Florida, Avraham was always a seeker. After zig zagging across the United States and working odd jobs in his 20's, the wind (aka God) blew him to Israel where he began his new life as a religious Jew. Avraham has been a student and teacher at Yeshivat Nahar Shalom in Jerusalem since 1993. He has taught for twenty years at the Berot Bat Ayin Seminary, specializing in Likutei Moharan, and conducting workshops and seminars in Kabbalah, Jewish Meditation, and spiritual creative writing. Rav Shira received a Masters Degree in Sociology from the University of North Texas specializing in Family Therapy. In addition to his teaching and tutoring, he is also a practicing therapist, a published author, and he is now in the process of completing two new works, ‘Messianic Consciousness: The Path of Personal Prophecy’ and ‘i for an I: A Memoir’. Rav Shira lives with his wife, Elisheva and their five children in Jerusalem.
