Sharon Gubbay Helfer, Montreal, Quebec

Sharon Gubbay Helfer, Ph.D. is an oral historian and video-biographer, specializing in life stories. Over the past twenty years she has been pursuing a deep interest in dialogues, and in particular difficult dialogues, both as a scholar and as a citizen. She has been an active participant in different inter-religious and intercultural groups and was co-president of the Israeli-Palestinian “Montreal Dialogue Group” for a number of years. Her academic research projects include an oral history of pioneers of Jewish-Catholic dialogue in Québec carried out at the Université de Montréal, and a Palestinian-Canadian Life Stories pilot project, at Concordia’s Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling. See Sharon’s website for details. In November 2015, Sharon joined a CLP delegation to Israel and Palestine. This pivotal experience led to her seeking certification as a CLP facilitator. Since certification, Sharon has been following her heart and finding her voice in new ways. Current passions include leading workshops and trainings to help cultivate the strength and clarity we need, in order to co-create new paths forward personally and communally, especially in these polarizing times.
