Announcing: A new partnership between myself and Student Israelity!

I am SO excited to announce that one of my favorite publications, AU’s very own Student Israelity, has offered to create a partnership between my site and theirs. Having written for them before in the past (here and here), I have a deep admiration for their mission: Everything Student Designed, Everything Student Written, Everything Israel. My […]

A Dialogue on Antisemitism…again!

I am very pleased to announce the next iteration of dialoguing about antisemitism, this time as an official, 7-week dialogue through AU’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion. The Center for Diversity and Inclusion’s website summarizes what to expect during these sessions with three questions: Regardless of your identity, what are your experiences with antisemitism? What […]

Mayyim B’Sasson: A Joyful Mikvah Rededication Ceremony

Wednesday night, many months of hard work came to a beautiful conclusion. Though it feels like I talk about it a lot (and scream it from the rooftops) many of my friends don’t quite understand what I do when I say I work at the mikvah. I was hired in August of 2018 to aid […]

New updates!

I’m stoked to reveal some updates I’ve been making to this site! I’ve totally revamped and reorganized how my posts are categorized and they now are sorted by topic, type, and publication. I’m hoping this makes it easier to navigate and read. Also, I’m always looking for feedback (which you can always give anonymously via […]

Happy 3rd Activist Anniversary!

Yesterday, Facebook reminded me that exactly three years ago I attended my first ever protest. It was the first time I took my feminism to the streets, the first time I demonstrated publically that I practice what I preach. And it scared the shit out of me. I was 19 and, objectively, fairly new to […]

Olam Chesed Yibaneh-We Will Build This World with Love

This weekend, the Jewish community of Pittsburg became the site of a massacre. Eleven people were slaughtered on Saturday morning, the holiest day of the week, during the bris for a gay couple’s twins. In the aftermath of the shooting, there has been a constant outpouring of emotion: rage, sadness, fear, love, kindness, faith. From […]

Speaking out at the Supreme Court against Kavanaugh

Tonight I had the honor of getting to speak at the Stop Kavanaugh Vigil outside of the Supreme Court. Aside from feeling like returning home (I spent many, many hours outside SCOTUS this summer), I felt an unbelievable sense of community, support, and of course rage. Rage at Kavanaugh, rage at the GOP, rage at […]

Shana Tova to the Activists; A Rosh Hashana Poem, inspired by a friend

Shana tova to the activists. Shana tova to the fighters, the resisters. Shana tova to those who worked their asses off last year to make sure the next year is a better one. Shana tova to those who see a brighter horizon, who see greener grass. Shana tova to organizers and the grassroots. Shana tova […]
