Last week I had the lovely opportunity to be interviewed by Washington Jewish Week about my work at the Adas Israel Community Mikvah!

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.

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.

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 [...]

Happy 3rd Activist Anniversary!

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 [...]

This Jewish Woman Marches Anyways: My (complicated) thoughts on the Women’s March

This Jewish Woman Marches Anyways: My (complicated) thoughts on the Women’s March

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. For months now, the March's leadership has been rocked with valid criticism and outrage over their lack of condemnation (and seeming approval) of antisemitism. As a feminist and activist, as an attendee of [...]
