The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022


Rebecca Soffer

Writer and Co-Founder of Modern Loss

Rebecca Soffer is a co-founder of Modern Loss, a website and global movement offering creative, meaningful and encouraging content and community addressing the long arc of grief. She is also author of “The Modern Loss Handbook: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience,” and co-author of the book “Modern Loss: Candid Conversation About Grief.” When she was 30, her mother Shelby was killed in a car accident, one hour after dropping Rebecca off from a family camping trip to the Adirondacks. Four years later, her father died of a heart attack while on a cruise to the Bahamas. Such tragic losses focused her on helping herself and others to heal from the death of a loved one. Soffer’s other projects include Reboot, an arts and culture non-profit that reimagines and reinforces Jewish thought and traditions through events, exhibitions, recordings, books, films, DIY activity toolkits and apps.
