Dina Schoonmaker is a teacher, popular lecturer, and relationship counselor.
A staff member of Michlalah Jerusalem College for over 20 years, Dina teaches a number of courses and runs a counseling hotline for alumni where she deals with issues such as dating and shalom bayit.
In addition, Dina lectures extensively throughout the seminary circuit on topics of personal development through the eyes of the Torah.
Dina is a regular respondent in Mishpacha Magazine's "Advice Line" and has written for "The Klal Perspectives Journal", a forum for discussion of challenges facing the Torah community.
Most recently, Dina began a series of live mussar vaadim for women throughout Israel. In response to many requests to offer her Vaad internationally, she decided to launch a Vaad by teleconference so that anyone, anywhere, has the opportunity to participate at their convenience.
Dina lives in Jerusalem with her husband, Dovid, a Rebbe in Aish Hatorah, and their 7 children.
