About

Thanks for joining the Modern Ritual community!

We are Rena and Sam, two Rabbinical students at HUC-JIRin New York.  

We started @Modern_Ritual the Instagram account in spring 2017 when Rena approach Sam in the library with the idea.  "There needs to be engaging, beautiful Jewish content on Instagram," she said, "and I think we can create it together."  "I'm in," said Sam.  "No, I want to do this for real," Rena replied.  Sam thought for a minute.  "I'm in."

Since then, thanks to you - more and more people engage with @Modern_Ritual's feminist, Jewish content every day.  We love being Jewish - how our particular identity helps us see the world, and we love sharing it with you.
