Press Coverage by Washington Jewish Week: Adas Israel reopens mikvah with stories

While I do subscribe and read Washington Jewish Week, this story slipped through the cracks and I am only just now seeing this wonderful story on our mikvah’s reopening. Check out the digital version of the paper here (the story is on pages 4-5).

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 […]

Interview with NowThis: Dayenu, why I marched in the 2019 Women’s March

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.

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.

Interview with Beyond the Byline: Why DVAM on Campus

A few weeks later, The […]

Interview with Alma: Why I (and 11 other millennial feminists) voted

Throwback to this important piece by the Alma staff! This post was in direct response to this mess of an article highlighting 12 millennials on why they won’t vote. As you can see, we were having none of it. Check out why I chose to vote here.

Interview with Sasha Jones: Profile of an Activist

I’m so flattered and excited to share this video that my good friend Sasha made of me for her Backpack Video Journalism class. She was tasked with finding someone whom most people wouldn’t expect to be ‘amazing.’ In the video, she asks me about my experiences around protesting and participating in civil disobedience. Check it […]

Put on by Georgetown University’s Sexual Assault Peer Educators- SAPEs, this full-day conference centered on sexual violence education and advocacy. Local students, administrators, and community organizations from across the DMV area presented on the […]
