Last night I attended the DC Dyke march and a lot went down. Being a Jew in queer spaces is always uncomfortable for me but last night takes the cake. Read what the full coverage here and stay tuned from more thought from me! Also, read what I wrote in anticipation of the march here.
Just like the DC Dyke March, I’m back from my hiatus! And just like the DC Dyke March, I’m stirring the pot. Once again, a Dyke March has chosen to deliberately exclude Jewish symbolism from their march and I am not having it. Read my full takedown on Alma here.
Happy International Women’s Day! Let’s take a look at the status of women’s rights in Israel and commit ourselves to fighting for feminist values in the US and Israel. Read my latest for Student Israeli here. “Today, Israeli feminists are still fighting for equality within a state that is marred by right-wing, religiously controlled institutions. […]
Last week I had the lovely opportunity to be interviewed by Washington Jewish Week about my work at the Adas Israel Community Mikvah!

I was 19 and, objectively, fairly new to […]
Last Monday, I received a phone call from Sare Soffer, a reporter and producer for NowThis who asked if I was going to the Women’s March. Throughout our conversation, we discussed the pitfalls of the Women’s March leadership and our hopes for the movement writ large. She asked me if I would like to be […]
Do I march? Do I stay home? My mixed feelings on the Women’s March aren’t new and they certainly aren’t a secret.
