What It Feels Like to Be Single and Jewish in 2023



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.

You’ll find out:

  • Emily’s advice for anyone dealing with antisemitism in the workplace
  • How non-Jews can make workplaces inclusive for Jews
  • Why so many people don’t think of Jews as a minority
  • What congregations can do to make themselves more welcoming to single Jews
  • Why Jewish singles events need to stop cutting off at age 36
  • What it’s like being on Jewish dating apps in 2023
