Hashem is Pro-Choice and So Am I: Amplify GA’s new campaign

I am blown away to be featured in Amplify GA's incredible campaign, #GodIsProChoiceAndSoAmI. They launched their campaign a few weeks ago, saying: #GodIsProChoiceAndSoAmI With the holidays approaching, we reflect on how religion and abortion, when brought up in the same space, are expected to clash irrefutably—the notion that being a person of faith means to [...]

Why I’m Preparing for Yom Kippur By Protesting at the Supreme Court

Today, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments on whether or not it is legal to fire people for being LGBTQ. In 2019. In America. This is the reality we live in, folks. Yet many, many straight people I've talked to in the last few days have no idea this is happening. So read my latest [...]

One year later: On Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Yom Kippur, and too many “sorrys”

In light of Yom Kippur, a day of repentance and supplication, here's what excessive apologizing means to me. Read my latest on JWA: https://jwa.org/blog/one-year-later

Escorting at an Abortion Clinic is Praying with My Feet

Escorting at an Abortion Clinic is Praying with My Feet

Getting this up here late! But I am so proud to have my first ever piece up for Lilith Magazine (I've been a subscriber for almost four years!).

RBG’s subtle and Jewish resistance explained

I kind of can't believe this, but I wrote about RBG for the first time. No idea why it took so long! The other day, Justice Ginsburg once again reminded the world she's a force to be reckoned with. During an interview with NPR, she said: “There was a senator — I think it was [...]

Mikveh and water justice: the crossover of your dreams

Mikveh and water justice: the crossover of your dreams

My most recent piece for Jewish Women's Archive is live! I wrote about the unlikely connection between feminism, water conservation, and the mikveh.

Jews, Stars of David, and the DC Dyke March, oh my!

Jews, Stars of David, and the DC Dyke March, oh my!

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.

Entering the Waters Again: A research presentation on the mikvah

This weekend I had the distinct honor to present my research on mikvah at the Mathias Undergraduate Research Conference. I often get so caught up in everything I'm working out outside of the classroom that I forget about my actual studies (the whole reason I'm at AU in the first place). So having my research [...]
