Meorah Ha-Me’ir is the Founder & Creative Director of BARA Worldwide (a nonprofit dedicated to breaking the cultural barriers around Torah-observant Judaism) and House of Judah™ (a line of Judaically inspired streetwear disrupting the image of “authentic” and observant Jewry, available at houseofjudah.co). Through both of these ventures, Meorah is making Judaism more accessible by creating a bridge between mainstream culture and observant Jewish lifestyles. Her personal mission is to inspire Jews of all backgrounds to return to the values of Torah & mitzvot by voicing her support of the observant community which she believes is greatly misunderstood and often poorly perceived. As a Korean-American Jew aspiring to live both authentically and observantly, Meorah embraces her unique Jewish identity and hopes to encourage others to do the same. In addition to writing her blog (“Shema Israel!” at baraworldwide.org/blog), Meorah can be found sharing her story and ideas through content on YouTube.
