Smashing Life and Brides Club members met up with Karen on her visit to NYC last November!
What a fantastic week it’s been in our 8 Days of Hanukkah Festival. In just a few days, we’ve built a warm, vibrant community as we all navigate a Hanukkah like no other. This incredible group has brought SO much light into the world – and while the festival will end as the Hanukkah candles dwindle down for another year, the incredible sense of support, community, and belonging doesn’t have to.
When Smashing Life member Sam Levitz recently moved into a new apartment, fellow SL’er Jenna sent her the sweetest housewarming gift!
The Hanukkah Festival is just a taste of what goes on 365 days a year in Smashing Life, Smashing The Glass’s 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.

And for the next few days until Wednesday, December 16, 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.
Zoom Shabbat dinner with Smashing Life
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!
