“Tamar Pelleg skillfully brings her experience with groups, literature and Torah to her work, along with a commitment to participatory, interactive learning. She is accomplished and knowledgeable in Bibiliodrama, and has a passion to share it with others.”

Dr. Peter Pitzele

“I attended Tamar Pelleg's workshop on the Book of Ruth at an ASGPP conference in 2010 (in Philadelphia) and was deeply impressed with the process---moved, too! Her gentle approach to Bibliodrama illustrated well the principle of personal creativity and how different people bring their own story and interpretation.”

Adam Blatner, M.D., T.E.P.

“Bibliodrama, integrated with psychodrama, is a powerful medium for self exploration, healing, and growth.  By creating a safe space, expertly facilitating a diverse group, and reading and translating from the original Torah text in her native Hebrew, Tamar Pelleg deftly weaves the two together, creates a safe space, and opens avenues for healing in a community setting not possible in one-on-one psychotherapy.  I enthusiastically recommend it and look forward to continuing the process.” 

Rabbinic Pastor De Fischler Herman

“BJC had a special treat this past Shabbat when Tamar Pelleg lead our Torah service. I had the great blessing of witnessing her the previous Shabbat at Am Kolel and then this past Shabbat at BJC. Her passion and the intonation in her voice make her Torah reading engaging and alive. In her Bibliodrama D’ver Torah Tamar develops a fascinating exploration of the imagination with “the recovery of Biblical stories and the wisdom they contain”. Thanks Tamar. Come back soon!”

“Tamar Pelleg has a gift of wisdom, sensitivity and deep insight for engaging with text not only with the mind, but also from the heart, in an inspiring and safe environment. As a psychologist and participant I was impressed by how skillfully she guides people into a cleared illumination of their own life’s journey through an experimental immersion into text based Bibliodrama.”
