Hendi Bogart

Hendi Bogart graduated from New England School of Acupuncture when her youngest of five children turned 9.   Until then she put all her energy into raising her children, fostering their creativity.  She found she had a talent for entertaining children with puppet shows at her children's birthday parties.  She performed puppet shows teaching moral values from Chassidic stories at various Jewish schools and temples. She raises her children holistically, using homeopathy, cranial sacral therapy, and very nutritious, whole foods.  She continues to share her knowledge of holistic medicine with her clients and community. Hendi has given workshops on Chinese medicine, aromatherapy, and wholistic lifestyle.  She performs as part of the Sharon womens choir, Arbah Kanfot. Besides her passion  or  healing, she has interest in causes for social justice.  Having grown up in a home of Holocaust survivors, Hendi has searched for meaning in the face of deep suffering.  She was drawn to understanding Chassidic culture and sacred texts in Israel.  She is excited about being part of a theatre production which brings attention to injustice and has the potential to change the world.
