New Year Special: 5 Inspiring Tales of Starting Over
If you’re anything like us, you can’t resist a good life-makeover story. It’s so much more inspiring to witness someone following his or her dream than to get preached at to follow our own. In the spirit of Rosh Hashanah, a time of deep reflection, we share five tales of Jewish women who made a major life transformation and jumpstarted their Jewish identity in a new way. We raise our honey-dipped apple slices to salute these brave women.
