Jewish writing therapy allows you to gently process, without judgment, some of your feelings and fears—so you can live with confidence, clarity and a deeper connection to G-d, yourself and others.
If you think you don’t like to write or don’t have experience, that’s okay.
HOW IT WORKS
The Jewish writing therapy process is very gentle. Sessions can be done via video, phone or in-person.
During our sessions, I will ask questions to learn about you and your journey. Then, using my unique writing prompts, we will journal. You will have the opportunity to share what you wrote and get feedback, if desired.
Before each journaling exercise, with the help of (optional) Jewish guided meditations and intentions, you can ground yourself emotionally. This also helps to uncover and remove any subconscious blocks and limiting beliefs that may be holding you back, which will help your words flow more freely.
I encourage you to write daily, and you also can share your writing with me between
During my 25 years as a professional writer, editor, educator and coach, thank G-d, I have helped many women with no previous writing experience beautifully uncover their stories, and to create richer religious and spiritual lives. Your journey is your own. I would love to help you move forward in your unique role in this Jewish life with a sense of love and peace.
I’m a baalat teshuva (BT), professional writer, editor, educator and coach from the U.S. now living in Israel.
I have, thank G-d, learned through my own struggles and successes how to integrate my true, authentic self into religious and spiritual life.
As a BT mom, I try to raise and educate my four children, including three teens, according to their unique needs, while modeling Torah values through my own love of Judaism.
Train a child according to his way; even when he grows old, he will not turn away from it.

Passing the Torch, One Step at a Time
I cried one recent morning after walking our son to school.
As an Oleh Hadasha (I recently made Aliyah), it has been exciting building a new life in the Holy Land, and it’s all starting to come together.
And for the first time in my four decades here on Earth—as I walked from his school back home, amidst the buzzing cars and blooming bougainvilleas—I knew, I am home.
I belong here. We belong here.
Our kids attend Israeli schools, learning lashon hakodesh and Torah — in our homeland.
We live near Bet Shearim, which was the meeting place of the Sanhedrin and home of Rabbi Yehuda HaNasi, compiler of the Mishna.
The Talmud says: “One who walks a distance of four cubits (about seven feet) in the Land of Israel is assured of being a ben olam haba – heir to the World to Come.”
Because of the intrinsic holiness of the Land of Israel, a person gains spiritual merit simply by walking here.
It’s something that must be felt to fully appreciate it, a knowing of the soul.
As a Jewish mom and heiress of our Godly heritage, it’s a great honor and responsibility to carry the torch of Torah—and to lovingly pass it on, one step in Eretz Yisrael at a time.
I’m Mindy Morasha Rubenstein, a Jewish baalat teshuva, wife and mom of four, including three teenagers, living—with gratitude—in the beautiful, holy mountains of northern Israel.
I have 25 years of experience as a writer, journalist, author, coach and teacher—as well as decades of personal-growth work, a master’s degree in communications, and certification in coaching.
After living in and sending our children to Jewish day schools in religious communities in Virginia, Maryland, Georgia and Florida, my family and I made Aliyah last year. Our kids now attend Israeli schools, learning lashon hakodesh and Torah — in our homeland.
As a Jewish mom and heiress of our G-dly heritage, it’s a great honor and responsibility to carry the torch of Torah—and to lovingly pass it on.

Share Your Story
I also serve as publisher and editor of Morasha Magazine, featuring art and writing from Jewish women in the U.S. and Israel.
Some are baalei teshuva — women who grew up secular and returned to Torah Judaism or. Some are gerim — Jews by choice. Some are Hassidic, Litvish, Modern Orthodox, Chabad, or new to uncovering the beauty of Judaism.
The Morasha community spans the vast spectrum of observance, creating a beautiful, one-of-a-kind publication with meaningful, thought-provoking and inspiring content.
I also help women share their stories by creating websites and through social media, graphic design, branding and other creative content.
