Elyssa Cherney is a rabbinical student at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She strives to make life's ordinary moments into extraordinary ones.
She believes holiness is created by helping people find meaning in their lives at moments of transition. That can be a major lifecycle moment: birth, becoming an adult, finding a partner, becoming a parent, and death; or at all the moments in-between.
Elyssa runs the website tacklingtorah.com as a way to connect with others and help people think differently about what role Judaism can play in their everyday lives.
When she is not attending school or creating holiness, Elyssa is also a daughter, wife, mother, traveler and car packer extraordinaire. She currently lives in Philadelphia with her husband, daughter and dog.
