This Shabbat, National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is hosting over 200 events across the country for #ReproShabbat! Local synagogues, NCJW sections, Hillels, JCCs, Federations, and more will be hosting panels, discussions, giving d’var Torahs (sermons), and inviting local reproductive justice activists to participate–all to affirm that abortion access is a Jewish value.
I’m honored to have my story of buying abortion medication featured in the special edition of Rewire News Group on the future of abortion access. I’m above the fold!!
The landscape of abortion rights shifts daily and the ability to receive abortion care is in jeopardy with threats coming from all sides. For The Progressive, I outlined the threats to reproductive rights from the national level.

This year is one like no other. It makes sense, then, that the holidays would be different this year too. I come from an interfaith background, my dad’s side celebrates Christmas and my mom’s side celebrates Hanukkah. Though, it would be more accurate to say that we all celebrate together.
I’m thrilled to be in Ms. Magazine for the very first time with an interview with the incredible Jennifer Weiss-Wolf, talking Scotland, menstrual equity, and how the US can make periods better.
Looking for supplemental blessings for Hanukkah this year? Want to infuse reproductive justice into you celebration? Look no further! In my latest article for Jewish Women’s Archive, I give short and sweet blessigns for each night of the holiday to recite to spread the spark of justice.
Recently, I had the pleasure of chatting with Garnet Henderson, host of Access: A Podcast About Abortion about a frightening trend of anti-abortion clinic protesters showing up in droves to harass patients, staff, and volunteers outside of abortion clinics
This has been an agonizing 36 hours waiting and watching the results from the election roll in. Though we’ve known for weeks that we would not know the final result of the election on election day itself, it’s agonizing to wait with so much at stake. I spoke with Washington Jewish Week about what advice National Council of Jewish Women and I are giving today around being patient.
Tonight, I am proud to finally announce that I have been voted onto the board of the Emma Goldman Clinic, a feminist and independent abortion clinic serving the people of Iowa. I have been sitting on the development committee since early February and when asked to become a full, voting member I jumped on it. Monday was my full orientation and tonight are my first committee meetings as a director.
