The social media sensation, who is extremely vocal about her jewish faith, recently opened up about her struggle with alcohol and her decision to stop drinking. “It was Shabbat afternoon. I started drinking at the synagogue and then continued at home," she said in a recent interview. "We were having guests over and I blacked out while hosting.
