He was born and raised a Jew in New York, the child of parents who escaped from Hitler. He studied Judaism under three prominent rabbis, considered joining a Hasidic community in Israel, but eventually ended up in Cambridge, where after an exceptional performance at MIT and Harvard, he was asked to join that faculty of the Harvard Business School.
Then he began to have visions. One day while walking along the beach on Cape Cod, he "fell into heaven." He had a mystical encounter with an anonymous God. After encountering God, he longed to know his name. "Let me know your name—""I don't mind if you are Buddha and I have to become a Buddhist; I don't mind if you are Apollo, and I have to become a roman pagan. I don't mind if you are Krishna, and I have to became a Hindu; as long as your are not Christ and I have to become a Christian!"One year to the day after his first religious experience on Cape Cod, Schoeman had a dream during which he encountered the Blessed Virgin, he started attending Mass and was baptized shortly thereafter.
Salvation is from the Jews…that’s our FOCUS.
