Prada or Prayer: From Fashionista to Jewish Educator

After much intensive study and passionate dialogue, I understood that while I will always love aesthetics and have an appreciation for beauty and grace, I wanted to share the treasures I had unearthed with others. I wanted to teach the beauty of Judaism.

I found myself at a career crossroads: Prada or prayer? While it’s possible to love both, I took the road less traveled — and that decision transformed my life.

The transition was seamless – and fashionable. Today, I lead Momentum Trips to Israel, an 8-day journey of self-discovery for Jewish mothers that has welcomed more than 18,000 women from more than 28 countries. At Momentum, we believe that if you can inspire a mother, you can inspire a family. If you can inspire enough families, you can inspire communities. If you can inspire enough communities, then you can change the world!

I found myself at a career crossroads: Prada or prayer? While it’s possible to love both, I took the road less traveled -- and that decision transformed my life.

Momentum women come to discover that all Jews are as interconnected as the Aspen tree roots beneath the ground. While we appear independent, we are profoundly interconnected. We nourish each other. We embrace unity without uniformity.

The Jewish people have always been called an “Ohr L’Goyim,” a light among the nations. But lately, our light has been rather dim.

Each one of us has a mission to uncover the light within us and to shine it upon
those who are both near and far. As Marianne Williamson wrote for the late great Nelson Mandela, “When you let your own light shine, you unconsciously give others permission to do the same.”

The Momentum Year-Long Journey helps illuminate the light in our souls and allows us to light the way in our homes, our communities, and in the world.

Join me and Momentum in Aspen on August 2 – 4 to discover your own light.


Adrienne bares her soul in this very frank and introspective talk about a journey from a world focused on materialism to one spirituality based and the people standing at the forks in the road who made all the difference.
