The End Of The Road

“Everything has to come to an end, sometime.”

-L. Frank Baum, “The Marvelous Land of Oz

Hello all the people who have found their way here, whether you’re a long-time reader or a first-time browser, I’m happy you stumbled across this little corner of the internet that I call my own.

I started this blog a very long time ago, feels like a lifetime ago, actually. It’s hard to remember the young woman I was when I first started sharing these posts that, honestly, I didn’t expect anyone but friends and family to read.

What began as a way to stay in touch with people I loved who lived far away turned into a wonderful outlet for expression that led to other wonderful outlets for expression that I now have the privilege of devoting my attention to (and, more to the point, get paid for).

So while I love this little blog, I am no longer going to be updating it (something my long-time readers surely have already noticed).

If you want to check out what I’m doing now, you can follow me on Instagram or Twitter (and, to a lesser degree, Facebook) to see when I have a new article out in Family First (or anywhere else something I write gets published).

You can also subscribe to Deep Meaningful Conversations (formerly known as Normal Frum Women), the podcast powered by Meaningful Minute that I co-host with Alex Fleksher, where we explore the topics that impact the lives of frum women through conversations that include candid personal examples, interviews with frum women, input from experts in their field, and practical advice.

Here are some of my favorite posts:

Why I’m Indoctrinating My Children (And Why You Are, Too)

What’s Religion Doing In My Closet?

Ten Years of Being A Jew

Why I Almost Quit Performing

What Makes Jewish Music “Jewish?”

How I Met My Husband

Just a reminder that when you read a post on the blog, be sure to check the date. Some of my views have changed over the past decade (shocking, I know!), and while I love everything I’ve written here, I wouldn’t necessarily write it that way again, if you know what I mean.

It’s been so nice sharing this space with you, looking forward to our interactions in these new spaces. You can always still just email me, I love that too.

  1. Good for you!

    I’m so glad to have met you TEN years ago during Hanukkah Hoopla! Wishing you well, my sweet friend! See you on IG!

    Please excuse any errors. This message was sent from my wireless thingamajiggy.


  2. Sad to see it go. May your journey take you to different places that will make you rise higher.

  3. I’m sorry to see you go! I don’t do Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, but I do listen to Normal Frum Women, so I’ll probably email you again at some point!

  4. I also ‘met’ you here, so I feel compelled to write a comment. I always liked the blog and I’m really glad it gave me the chance to connect to you. But all things do indeed come to an end. Great that you have writing opportunities you get paid for! :-)

  5. I’ll miss your blog, Rivki. It’s been such a happy place for me to hang out for the past ? years. And it’s been great knowing you. Thank you for all your inspiration, honesty, humour, wisdom, and most importantly for sharing your journey with us. Wishing you every joy and blessing for your future and see you in these other spaces! xxx
