Heidi Neumark

Rev. Heidi Neumark has served as pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church of Manhattan in New York City since 2003. For 19 years prior, she was pastor of Transfiguration Lutheran Church in the South Bronx. Neumark was a founding member of South Bronx Churches, an ecumenical community-organizing group that has trained local leaders, built hundreds of low-cost homes, and established a top-ranked public high school. She completed her undergraduate studies at Brown University and received her M.Div. from Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. She spent a year at an ecumenical seminary in Argentina, where she worked with Servicio Paz y Justicia, a human rights organization. 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. Presently, she is working on a book about the discovery of her Jewish roots and the story of her grandfather, who died at the Terezín concentration camp.
