Melanie Landau believes that the body is divine and the divine is the body. When Landau speaks about her life’s journey, it is with a powerful vulnerability. She smiles and tears up simultaneously. This is a woman fully in herself, fully present; alive.Landau grew up in Melbourne, Australia in a traditional Jewish home. “I didn’t know then that the tradition could speak to my insides,” she recalls. She and her husband initially came to Israel 20 years ago to learn Torah together, but returned to Australia. After eight years, they were longing for Israel again, and have been here for the past six years.
