New Frum Fashionista Reality Show

Tobi Rubinstein Schneier has plenty of faith to go around. The ex-wife of rabbi Marc Schneier, who was caught in a major cheating scandal, Schneier has made some major improvements in her life and career in the past two years, according to an article in the New York Post.

The fashionista has a new reality TV show called “The House of Faith N’ Fashion,” which follows Schneier as she juggles her designer aspirations and her new(ish) responsibilities as a rabbi since she was ordained in January 2012 by the Jewish Spiritual Leaders Institute rabbinical school. She focuses on how her faith shapes her life as a free and independent woman. To her, being Orthodox does not mean just being a wife and a mother, it means having the strength to stay true to herself.

Schneier hopes to launch a House of Faith N’ Fashion line after the first season of the show wraps up. As an Orthodox Jew who is also interested in fashion, Schneier represents a group of women who hold strong to their beliefs while forging their own path. She is the only woman in her family not to wear a sheitel, she wears pants (jeans no less!) and takes her career aspirations seriously, “I was no longer the wife of a rabbi — so I became the rabbi!”
