Rabbi Elyssa Cherney is the founder and CEO of Tacklingtorah. She was ordained by 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 especially 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.
Rabbi Elyssa runs the organization Tacklingtorah as a way to connect with others and help people think differently about what role Judaism can play in their everyday lives.
She works with many individuals, couples and families as a spiritual guide as they navigate their Jewish journey . When she is not working on creating holiness, Rabbi Elyssa is also a daughter, wife, mother, traveler and car packer extraordinaire.
