In this episode...
Karen sits down with Smashing Life member Emily Cohen for an honest chat about contemporary Jewish life – from dealing with antisemitism in the workplace to what it’s like to be a single Jewish woman in 2023. They cover everything from how Emily started wearing a Star of David in response to an antisemitic boss, to what it’s like engaging in Jewish life as a single thirty-something woman, to what exactly it is that makes the Smashing Life community so empowering.
