Early life

Father – Shlomo Rushinek

Mother – Maia Greenfeld

Siblings – She has six brothers (2 older and 4 younger)

Odeya Rushinek was born to a Jewish family. In Hebrew, her given name means “I will thank God”. As an eight-year-old growing up in her hometown of Haifa, Israel, she wrote and performed plays.

Her family moved to the United States when she was nine years old so that her father could take up a job as a security consultant in Alabama. When she arrived, Rush did not know English and could only speak Hebrew. She attended the N. E. Miles Jewish Day School in Birmingham, Alabama, where she resided; she later moved to Midland Park, New Jersey, where she attended public school.

In the beginning of 2013, Rush moved to Los Angeles with her family. She has six brothers; four of them are younger than her—two sets of twins who reside with their parents in Los Angeles, and two older paternal half-brothers who reside in Israel.

Quotes

[on her first name] It’s an interesting story, actually . . . I’m Jewish [and] . . . it’s from the [Old Testament] . . . They thought of many other names, but they couldn’t exactly agree. My dad just opened the book and the first sentence he saw, it was in Hebrew . . . My name, Odeya, means “Thank God.” So that’s where they found it.

When I came to America, I told my dad I wanted to be an actress. He was like, “OK, calm down. Learn English.”
