About Keeping It Sacred (KITS)
Keeping It Sacred (KITS) is a center for the exploration of meaningful texts, customs, and rituals. Our mission is to deepen the personal and communal sense of the sacred by illuminating traditions that are accessible, relevant, and empowering in the world today.
Hi! I’m Rabbi Heather Miller, founder of Keeping It Sacred which is a center for the exploration of meaningful texts, customs, and rituals. We aim to deepen the personal and
communal sense of the sacred by illuminating traditions that are accessible, relevant, and empowering in the world today. We are dedicated to inspiring, uplifting, and empowering people to live their most sacred lives.
I smile a lot because I survived a medical crisis as a kid and have always cultivated a sense of gratitude for life ever since. Growing up in an interfaith family, I learned the skill of authentically making ritual observances accessible to all.
I genuinely love mining Jewish sacred texts for timeless wisdom that deepens the meaning in my life; and I love sharing what I learn with others. My exploration of Jewish ethics has led me to be a strong advocate for social justice and I actively engage in solidarity work for a variety of causes.
I live in Southern California where I enjoy time with my wife, Melissa, our two young kids, my recently-widowed mother, and my Catholic in-laws.
I know what it feels like to be made to feel not Jewish enough. In my case, it was for having grown up in an interfaith family. For others it might be because you do not conform to ashkenormative standards, you don’t keep kosher, you have not married yet, or because your hair is straight. All of that is just the noise of other people’s judgements.
Do you want to explore Jewish heritage, traditions and wisdom? Do you want to feel empowered in your spirituality? I founded Keeping It Sacred as the place to do that, and you are welcome here. Our acronym, KITS, honors my beloved grandmother, Fruma Kit Endler, who died at the age of 100 this past June.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“The way that she talks to people, the way that she sees every person as inherently valuable, I think that speaks to her religious faith in a way that quoting Scripture can’t.”
