If you had tons of free time, you'd find the right stuff to have meaningful DIY Jewish celebrations. But, we saw your Outlook calendar. You're welcome...

Have you ever asked yourself, “Why be Jewish?” Us too! The short answer is that Judaism is a somewhat easy and time-tested (like 5,000+ years) way to add meaning and connection to your life. But yeah, sometimes Judaism can be more complicated than your last girlfriend. That’s where JewBelong comes in. Think of us as the friendly, kinda funny kid from your geometry class who explained in simple language and without judgment only what you needed to know for the test. We provide straightforward explanations, readings and rituals to help warm your heart. We promise never to JewBarrass you because we’ve been there. We’re thrilled that you’re here, and hope you find what you’re looking for.

Great, another Olivia.
