Sharon Leshem Zinger

Sharon Leshem Zinger is one of Israel’s foremost group dynamic facilitators with 30 years of experience working with conflict groups inside Israel and between Israelis and Palestinians. Her unique approach to facilitation fuses elements from psychodrama, Jewish spirituality, and group dynamics to create a broadly inclusive experience that enables people of radically different backgrounds and beliefs to engage deeply with one another. She has written and published numerous articles and has won awards for her pioneering work in the field. She founded and directed a training school for facilitators at Collot BaNegev on the campus of Sapir College and taught for ten years in the department of Conflict Resolution and Management at Ben Gurion University in Beersheba. In Sia’h Shalom, in addition to directing the overall vision of the organization and facilitating leadership groups and others, Sharon is responsible for developing modes of facilitation, training and supervision of facilitators. Sharon is a member of Kibbutz Urim in the Western Negev (near the border with Gaza). She is married to Haggai, and they have two daughters.
