Pastor Heidi Neumark
Pastor Neumark was a founding member of South Bronx Churches, an ecumenical community organizing group that trained local leaders, built hundreds of low-cost homes, and established a top-ranked public high school.
Pastor Neumark grew up in New Jersey. She completed her undergraduate studies at Brown University and received her Masters in Divinity from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. She spent a year at an ecumenical seminary in Argentina where she also worked with Servicio Paz y Justicia, a human rights organization.
In addition to being a local pastor, Pastor Neumark preaches and speaks at events around the country. She also enjoys writing.
Her experiences in congregational and community ministry in the Bronx led to a highly acclaimed book, Breathing Space: A Spiritual Journey in the South Bronx (Beacon Press).
She has a chapter on ministry at Trinity in Getting On Message: Challenging the Christian Right from the Heart of the Gospel. Presently, she is working on a book about the discovery of her Jewish roots and the story of her grandfather who died at the Terezin concentration camp.
Heidi is married to Gregorio Orellano and they are the proud parents of Ana and Hans.
