Rabbi Shalom Hammer has been inspiring and helping people for years as an educator for the Israel Defense Forces and as the founder and director of Makom Meshutaf, an organization which offers non-denominational and non-coercive Jewish educational programming throughout Israel’s Pre-Military Academies.
When his daughter Gila died from suicide, Rabbi Hammer decided to channel his grief by helping those with mental health challenges. He became a certified instructor for MHFA (Mental Health First Aid) as well as an advocate of mental health awareness and an educator regarding suicide prevention.
He is a published author of ten books and a lecturer for communities worldwide.
