Sarit was born in Israel and grew up in Toronto. She obtained a Masters in Public Policy and worked as a policy advisor for the Ontario government. Being the only Orthodox Jew at work, she began to humorously chronicle her experiences of being observant in the modern workplace in her blog, The Working Yid. In 2019, Sarit moved to Israel with her husband and baby boy and has been writing about her Aliya experiences and what it means to be an Orthodox Jew in the 21st Century. Her blog is now called The Modern Yid.
