Rachel Sharansky Danziger grew up in Jerusalem, where she completed degrees in philosophy and history and taught Tanach to new immigrants. Her MA focused on the way 18th century American protoevangelicals told their personal stories, and what their stories tell us about their experiences of emotions and self. Rachel continues to explore connections between stories, religion, and emotions as an educator and a blogger and her work can be found on The Times of Israel, 929, and other online venues.
