Rebecca Minkoff’s scientology religion

RHONY newbie Rebecca Minkoff identifies both as Jewish and a scientologist. She refers to the church as “more of a self-improvement philosophy,” as per The New York Times in 2021, adding, “I’m totally open.”

She also said, “But it’s not my job to proselytize.” The RHONY newbie revealed she studies and takes classes as a scientologist, saying, “That’s the extent of it, and it’s helped me stay centred.”

“When I needed someone, it was a place for me to go get some answers,” Rebecca, who has been studying scientology for more than 20 years, continued to add.

She identifies as Jewish in religion

Rebecca honors her beliefs with Judaism and scientology, “which the word itself means knowledge,” she said on the Dinner Party With Jeremy Fall podcast in October 2021, adding, “That’s all it means.”

“I’m Jewish so I have my beliefs with Judaism and God and I go to Scientology to learn knowledge,” she continued. “And that’s spiritual because I’m not working out my abs.”

“We’re just separating the body from the spirit. It has personally helped me from my own demons, my own things I’m not happy about myself,” Rebecca added in the interview.
