Shiffy Friedman, MSW, CNWC

As the editor-in-chief of The Wellspring, Shiffy Friedman combines her talent in writing and editing with her appreciation toward a healthy lifestyle and the readership’s sensitivities to arrange the production of a wholesome, well-rounded magazine.

In her practice as an LMSW, Shiffy realized that her knowledge in psychology was not helpful in healing the infinitely profound nefesh. She’s grateful to have discovered the Torah’s direction toward emotional and spiritual health, which comprises the content of her columns in the Wellbeing section of the magazine.
