The Bridge

So I'm an Orthodox Jewish woman. I've been Orthodox my whole life.  My husband's a Rabbi, my brother is Chassidic. Or Hasidic. Yeah, I wear long skirts and people ask me if I'm Amish. Apparently there are a lot of misunderstandings about my world. And people are afraid to ask. Or intimidated.  Or polite. I have friends that are uber-Orthodox and some that don't know an aleph from a pork chop. And I want to bring us all together. That's the concept here: bringing the Ortho out of the box. And building a huge, friendly bridge for us to all stand on together. No issue too big, too small, too ignorant. Join me in my journey. I can't wait.

  1. Just found you, and I want to tell you this is great! You are a good writer, and are approaching all this in the same down to earth, knowledge based, humorous way I try to use to field all the questions that come my way throughout life. (I am the Orthodox black sheep of my family, was the only Orthodox Jew on campus during college, have always been the only Orthodox Jew where I work, etc.)

    Kol hakavod! Keep it up.
