Smashing Life and Brides Club members met up at Karen ‘s home for a Challah Bake
Happy Wednesday! I’ve got a question for you… did you know that as well as Smashing The Glass (focused on your Jewish wedding your way), we run a sister brand and podcast called Your Jewish Life all about living your best Jewish LIFE – your way?
I’m proud to say, it’s immensely popular – and my accompanying podcast, Your Jewish Life Your Way with Karen Cinnamon, is a a great listen too! (Don’t you love how I’m my own kvelling Jewish mother?! )
Zoom Shabbat dinner with Smashing Life
Smashing Life is my warm, inclusive lifestyle community for Jewish and Jew-ish women, whether you’re single, engaged, married, or anything else.
It’s like the warmth of freshly baked challah and Shabbat candles fused with fashion, interiors, lifestyle, recipes, a healthy dose of fun, and a whole lotta heartfelt love and support.
Smashing Life and Brides Club members met up with Karen on her visit to NYC pre-pandemic!
And for the next 48 hours until Thursday, September 23, the doors to this life-changing community – a space that, in the words of one of our members, “feels like coming home” – are open. If you’re looking to make new friends, lean into your Jewish identity, and find a space where you are enough – what are you waiting for? Join now to see what it’s all about.
When Smashing Life member Sam Levitz recently moved into a new apartment, fellow SL’er Jenna sent her the sweetest housewarming gift!
Sam Levitz, New York City:
Growing up I was a part of many different Jewish circles but found in my adult years that those circles had faded into only fond memories. I was struggling to find a space that felt curated for me and my needs as a Jewish adult, and wanting to create a space for myself and my future family that felt true to my Jewish identity. Smashing Life gave me that power and inspiration.
I’ve made connections and friendships inside Smashing Life that I know will last a lifetime. From virtual Shabbat dinners and in-person happy hours (one day again soon!), to support and love when things get difficult, I know that Smashing Life is the place I can go to where I will find the most incredible people to lift me up.
And I hope they know that I’m there for them. When the going gets tough, you don’t need to look further. We’re not just an online group, we’re a family, a community, and we’re there for each other.
To be part of a group of Jewish women to connect, engage, and share life’s struggles and triumphs is more important to me than I ever realized.
Our Jewish or Jew-ish connections may have initially brought us together, but it’s the kindness and compassion of this group that keeps me coming back. I don’t know what I’d do without it and I feel so lucky and fortunate to be a part of it.
When Sam’s beloved cousin tragically passed away, fellow Smashing Lifer Viviana sent her this book – and they’d never even met in person!
