The ultimate support system
Smashing Life is the non-judgmental private club for Jewish women that nourishes and empowers you, and gives you everything you need to feel Jewish at heart, and supercharged in life, hosted by Karen Cinnamon, founder of Your Jewish Life and Smashing The Glass.
Ready to be surrounded by smart, supportive, available Jewish friends, and build real world relationships to cheer each other on and get that same support?
We are a ‘zero cliques’, non-judgmental community – a safe, fun space where you will be embraced for who you are, and supported for what you want. We make it happen inside Smashing Life!
Slay your life goals
As wonderful as being Jewish is, it can often feel isolating, lonely and really difficult to find a community who ‘gets’ you. It can be hard to meet like-minded Jewish friends, and when we wonder how we fit into the Jewish world we can feel misunderstood, overwhelmed, and afraid to be judged.
And that’s where Smashing Life comes in. Described as the “Jewish community I always wished for in my adult years” by Sam, one of our much-loved members, Smashing Life is your support system, squad of cheerleaders, and place to feel welcomed and understood. It’s a place to finally be accepted and celebrate feeling more ‘Jew-than-ish’, all within a positive, vibrant community.
“Thanks to Smashing Life I was able to be myself in this community of strong and like-minded women. I have gained courage and I started to stand up for myself more in my life and speak up at work. I just received a promotion which has been hectic but great!”
Carolina Rossin – New York City

The non-judgmental private club for Jewish women
Smashing Life is for all Jewish women – single, engaged, married, mother, business owner, corporate climber… modern Jew, traditional Jew, patrilineal Jew, new Jew… Those with and plenty of close Jewish friends, and those without… Any of these, or a beautiful combination, we welcome ALL Jewish women with open arms.
Smashing Life is a place to nourish your own personal development while connecting with other like-minded Jewish women – around the corner and across the globe.
Inside Smashing Life, you’ll be surrounded by Jewish friends who get and understand you. Who can relate to you. Who can support you. Who can encourage you.
In our accepting non-judgmental environment, no matter what’s going on in your life, we’ve got you.
And because of our global community, there is always a 3am friend (or several!). Your middle of the night is another Lifer’s day time. We’re better together, stronger together and take deeper risks when we feel part of a supportive, nurturing collective.
24/7 you can throw out a question – whether it’s looking for a product recommendation or something more serious like advice for dealing with a family or work issue – we’ve got you covered so you can feel empowered – all day every day.
And whilst you can talk about ANYTHING inside the safe space of Smashing Life (nothing is off limits), we focus on the following themes in the form of masterclasses, challenges, Q&As, and in-person and virtual meet-ups:
- Jewish Life
- House hunting + Interiors
- Family and in-laws
- Jewish Tradition Basics
- TTC, Pregnancy + Parenting
- Health + Wellbeing
- Career + Work/Life Balance
- Style + Beauty
- Jewish Diversity and Anti-racism
- Mental Health + Self-care
Strengthen your identity and live a life filled with purpose and joy
“I joined Smashing Life a year and a half ago and have made some wonderful friends. I have a place to crowdsource, to figure out weird Jewish questions without judgement, to celebrate, to socialize, and it’s so welcoming to all Jews (previously I have felt ostracized or even shamed because I don’t keep kosher enough or don’t do Shabbat ‘right’ etc).
I really have more unabashedly reclaimed my Judaism and infused it into my life. I’m ready to have conversations about my life with my partner about what a marriage and raising kids looks like for us, being interfaith. And that is absolute personal growth and life goals. And just being me, and being ok with being me. That’s a major life goal.”
