elyssa-austerklein“When we go to have prayer together, the point is for me to leave the prayer service in a different place, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, than where I was when I started,” she said. “To take me on a journey, to take you on a journey. And I feel that way of weaving in imagery and videos allows that journey to take place in a different way than we had access to before we were doing it on screen.” — Rabbi Elyssa Joy Austerklein`11 and Founder of Ivrim Without Borders

Rabbi Elyssa Joy Austerklein was featured in the September 1, 2021 Cleveland Jewish News article “Ivrim Jews Without Borders ready for first High Holy Days.”
