If this is your first time visiting The Rebbetzin, welcome! For those of you landing here via the blurb from this week’s CJN, so glad you stopped by! Take a look around!
I’d like to clarify the CJN description of this blog. Here is what the CJN wrote:
“A look at the religion of Judaism and Jewish life through the eyes of a rebbetzin.”
I can understand, given the title of my blog, and a possible scan of recent posts, why the author of the article made that assumption.
Here is my description of what I write about, taken from my “About Me” page.
“This blog is clearly about my life, and my life as a rabbi’s wife. It will evolve, but it will for sure be totally self-centered and navel-gazing in the spirit of the personal blog world :-)”
In another part of the article describes their new site, CJN Connect, as bringing a taste of what Online Jewish Cleveland has to offer (YAY! Go Us!), and they mention my blog as “How does a self-described “observant, religious, Reform Jew” show us that a rebbetzin can rock?” Totally true. I do rock. Mostly in my own mind :-D
I write about the life of being a rebbetzin and being an active Jew through the eyes of me, Leah. I have no idea what other clergy spouses feel or think, or how other Jews may experience this nutty, wonderful life; this is just my take on my life, and the things that I care about.
I often write about Judaism, Jewish life, and most recently, Reform Judaism. I want to make Judaism more accessible to everyone. No one denomination owns our faith – it is all of us. But I also write about the Muppets, my kids, and my beloved Cleveland sports teams.
I hope you stick around and join the conversation – see the sidebar – we have so much to learn from each other!
