Welcome to Sufficiently Chai. Lindsey and Rachel are two Jewish blondes who have proclaimed themselves professional weed smokers and very amateur Torah scholars. For most millennials, religion has taken a backseat (at least compared to our parents’ generation) and kinda feels lame and outdated. Lindsey & Rachel are here to make the Torah and Judaism relatable, interesting, and tbh, really funny, for the everyday Jew or Jew-curious person. They’ll also be high the whole time - hence the name, duh. Get in touch! Lindsey & Rachel love you and would love to hear from you. For any comments, inquiries, compliments, concerns, or questions, write to: sufficientlychai@gmail.com. Follow them on Instagram!: @sufficiently_chai

Our last episode for the summer! Try to hold back your tears (don’t worry, we will be back soon). The girls discuss their sizzling summer weekend at the Jersey Shore, where Lindsey learned that guidos were real and Rachel discovered she likes green tea - if it’s mixed with vodka. Lindsey dives into this week’s Torah portion to discuss how we can be a little brave in everyday life, and Rachel delivers a JewISH about Judaism and that sweet, sweet stigma of addiction. Finally, they finish off...

13. Weak ties, baby

7/11/2019
More
Surprise! Rachel becomes a woman this week. It’s the 12 year anniversary of her bat mitzvah Torah portion, so she decides to infuse her 12 year old thoughts with her 24 year old thoughts, and TBH they are not that different. Lindsey responds to a listener’s request to talk about abortion and Judaism, and we were actually pleasantly surprised. We play a round of Jewish or Goyish, and we end lucky #13 with a NEW segment called, “Is this Kosher?” Think red flag/dealbreaker but different and...

12. Sports!

6/27/2019
More
There’s a lot going on. We talk about sports, music, repeating stories, and how high we are and what we’re smoking. Rachel takes us through this week’s Torah portion and talks about how to approach impostor syndrome as a way to stay motivated rather than let it hold you back. Lindsey talks about Judaism and sexting during the JewISH, then we read a listener’s email during the Jewish Advice segment. Finally, we play a round of red flag or dealbreaker.

11. I don't watch movies but I do get curious

6/20/2019
More
This episode starts off with a lot of laughs and a lot of weed. We’re introducing a new segment called Kush Korner, where we tell you all about the weed we’re smoking and where we got it. We’re right around the corner from a very exciting dairy-filled holiday, SHAVUOS! Lindsey reframes the main theme of letting go surrounding this holiday and teaches us the importance of releasing the fear of being seen as a quitter and being okay with being in a gray area when you’re getting over something...

10. PSA: The National Zoo needs more security

6/14/2019
More
Rachel discovers on one of her walks that the National Zoo has essentially nonexistent security, so consider this your warning. We jump into the Torah portion and talk about the census (stay with us), individuality, community, and being introverted vs. extroverted. After Lindsey takes us through Judaism’s thoughts on ghosting, she disappears and Rachel never hears from her again. After Rachel tracks her down we close out the episode by playing Jewish or Jappy and red flag or dealbreaker!

9. Bowling ain’t so bad

6/9/2019
More
After discovering we both had weird childhood tendencies (shocking, right), we waste NO time jumping into the Torah portion of the week. Lindsey talks about the importance of showing love in the right ways and how knowing your friend’s, family’s, and especially significant other’s love languages is imperative. Rachel debunks the Jewish tattoo taboo (sort of) and no, she is not going to join your bowling league. Like always, we have to close out by playing some games and bring to you some...

8. Deep in the throat of bro-hood

5/23/2019
More
A change of recording location has us feeling FRISKY! Instead of sitting on top of Rachel’s bed, we’re bringing you this episode from Lindsey’s lovely abode. After discussing hot Asians and whether we see ourselves marrying a “bro” (Rachel does), we stick our heads into a deep pot of Torah and discuss leaps of faith. Lindsey then does a rendition of “Matchmaker” from Fiddler on the Roof before discussing Judaism and matchmaking in the JewISH. We keep the party going by playing Jewish or...

7. Scratch ‘n sniff

5/16/2019
More
Lindsey and Rachel are really feelin’ it this week and are coming in hot with a whole mess of tantalizing Torah study. Lindsey starts them off with the d’var Torah and advises on the necessity of raising your standards to match your actual worth and worrying less about being labeled CHAI maintenance. Rachel discovers her true passion is learning and talking about marijuana and brings us full circle by educating us Judaism’s (and the country’s) take on weed during the JewISH. We answer a...

6. Don't be a dick

5/2/2019
More
Holy cow! What an episode. After it’s determined that Rachel does NOT play the oboe but does do laughing yoga, we belly flop right into a spicy slice of Torah. Rachel discusses what holiness looks like as a 24-year old regular person and the important distinction between being nice and being kind. Lindsey takes us through Judaism’s thoughts on monogamous relationships (her dad is very thankful to have a week off from sex talk). They close out the episode with a round of Jewish or Goyish and...

5. Sorry, Dad

Lindsey and Rachel are both very high and a little bit drunk in this episode. Not to worry though, they are just as entertaining and intelligent as always. After Rachel regales us with tales of her almost run-in with a drug bust (almost as in, didn’t happen) and her 7-mile walk to the monuments, Lindsey talks about feeling fragile yet resilient and shifting your mindset to view fragility as a growth opportunity. In the JewISH of the week, Rachel talks little white lies and if you’re going to...

Episode 2 starts off with the mutual adoration Lindsey and Rachel feel for each other. Then, Rachel gives the d’var Torah and learns that the only leper colony in existence is in India (wow!), and then talks about isolation and leaning on each other when you’re down. Lindsey’s JewISH dives into the juicy details around Judaism and consent. Finally, they write/read haikus to each other and, of course, play red flag or dealbreaker.

Rachel and Lindsey are back for another week of sweet, sweet Torah. Lindsey blesses us with her wise words on purification and how we can see this manifest in the fresh starts going on in our lives (new job, new city, new roommates, new whatever) and during the JewISH Rachel makes herself laugh and talks about Jewish humor. Then they introduce a NEW game - Jewish or Jappy (please don’t get offended - we’re all just having fun here okay?). They bring it back to the more “conventional” side of...

It’s 4/20 week baby! You know what that means...Passover!! Rachel and Lindsey discuss their Passover plans and their love of attention before getting into the real Jewish stuff. Rachel spills basically all her inner secrets (JK) and burns her spiritual chametz, and Lindsey talks about something similar and shares some thoughts on Judaism and BDSM during the JewISH. They read a listener’s letter during our newest segment, Jewish Advice, and end with a VERY difficult game of red flag or...

1. So happy to be here

In the inaugural episode of Sufficiently Chai, Rachel and Lindsey get high and talk about boundaries and the contentment you can get from just feeling “whelmed.” Lindsey’s d’var Torah discusses finding ritual in boundary setting and the importance of listening to yourself and your body. Then, in the JewISH of the week Rachel reminisces about her wonderful high school Tanakh teacher and takes us through some thoughts on Judaism and the afterlife. They close out by reading our 10 plague-themed...
