Occupational Therapist, Artist, Photographer and co-author of "Tuvia Finds His Freedom"
Shoshanah Shear was born in Bulawayo in what was Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. She moved to Cape Town, South Africa as a child where she developed a love of nature, creativity and helping others. Shoshanah was influenced by her late grandfather, Prof V.L. Granger, Honorary Life President of the St Giles Association and Honorary Life Member of the Association for the Physically Disabled in Cape Town, to study occupational therapy. The profession of OT combines her interest in the sciences, her range of creative skills and helping others. Shoshanah is also a healing facilitator, certified infant massage instructor, certified Kallah teacher, artist, photographer and writer as is the co-author of "Tuvia Finds His Freedom". As a 3rd year OT student, Shoshanah was diagnosed with a chronic, debilitating illness. Her journey with this illness lead her back to authentic Torah and has provided invaluable insight that she uses in her work. She combines her various skills together with Torah concepts to assist her clients to develop a life of meaning and purpose. Shoshanah works with her husband, Rabbi Eliyahu Shear to establish a Torah Healing Centre.
