Our Story

Smashing Life was founded in 2019 when Karen was asked by graduates of her ground-breaking Brides Club community for Jewish brides-to-be to create a follow-on space for Jewish newlyweds.

What started off as a nurturing community for Jewish newlywed women quickly expanded to the ultimate support squad for ALL Jewish women (regardless of their relationship status) – and the go-to place for Jewish women to feel understood and accepted within a judgement-free zone.

“Smashing Life was created to have your back through all of life’s ups and downs. Whether you’re crushing your career goals, navigating your relationships, looking for Jewish spirituality or Friday night dinner hacks, or simply trying to figure out your place in the world, our community is here to cheer you on every step of the way.”

Karen Cinnamon

Founder of Smashing Life

Having pioneered and established Smashing The Glass, the world’s biggest Jewish wedding platform, the Your Jewish Life podcast and Instagram account loved by 100s of 1000s of Jewish women across the globe, and the Jewish Joy Journal, the world’s bestselling gratitude journal for Jewish women, Karen set out to reduce feelings of isolation and empower Jewish women to connect, all over the world.

Her vision is to inspire Jewish women to build healthy and equitable relationships in all areas of life while embodying the core Jewish values of kindness, inclusivity, compassion and joy.

“No more feeling like you’re on your own – join us and let’s smash life together!”
Be Jew. Be Bold. Belong.
