About Allison Josephs Founder of Jew In The City
Allison Josephs was raised in a small town in Northern New Jersey, but due to a childhood existential crisis, she spent years searching for the meaning of life. At the end of high school Allison started looking into Judaism more deeply and saw that there was tremendous depth and beauty within Orthodox Judaism, but realized that it was an option that so few Jewish people ever consider, as public opinion of Orthodox Jews is so negative.
Allison has been involved in the field of Jewish Outreach for over a dozen years, teaching and lecturing, working at Partners in Torah, Sinai Retreats, and NCSY, and is spiritual mentor to actress Mayim Bialik.
Allison has been interviewed on television and radio; her articles have appeared in numerous publications including the Washington Times, The Jewish Press, and World Jewish Digest. She has also written articles and directed and produced videos for Aish.com and lectures around the country and on WebYeshiva. She received her Bachelor in Arts from Columbia University in Philosophy and lives with her husband and four children minutes from the George Washington Bridge.
