Shaul grew up in Liverpool and is a long suffering Liverpool supporter. He attained his Rabbinical degree in Jerusalem where he met his late wife Elana, who passed away in 2001. They had four children together and Shaul has a further four with his wife Chana who he married in 2003. Shaul came across The Principles in 2002 and realised that this was the missing link he had been looking for in his educational programmes. This was quickly followed by a deeper realisation that the universal nature of these principles dictated that his teaching could not be exclusively for the Jewish community he served. He founded Tikun in 2006 and has recently, along with Terry Rubenstein, founded the Innate Health Centre with the goal of spreading the message of the Principles to the Jewish community and beyond.
