This summer, I was interviewed by the incredible Joyce Lu of Harvard Radio Broadcasting. In it, I discussed why I was protesting in support of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra. Basically, this was a Supreme Court case deciding whether or not Crisis Pregnancy Centersshould be allowed to lie and manipulate women who […]
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 […]
I am a student in DC. I am also at risk of getting pregnant in a place with more fake clinics than real ones. It’s one of the many reasons I believe that supplying abortion medication should be the norm for college health centers. Read my full argument on Women’s Wire Weekly’s amazing blog! While […]
As you may know, last week I was arrested while protesting Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. It was a bizarre (but deeply meaning) handful of hours, from meeting my fellow activists, sleeping outside, and spending my afternoon in zip ties. But the unusual part of my evening was having a productive conversation with Linda Sarsour. And then […]
Somehow, a whole month has passed since attending the Summer Gathering held by the Rising Tide Open Waters Mikveh Network. Though I wrote this in the days following the Gathering, the sentiments still remain: attending this conference has fundamentally changed, for the better, my relationship to mikveh.

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 […]
Yesterday, I was arrested. Yep. What would possess me, a 21-year-old, to participate in a civil disobedience direct action? Well, unsurprisingly, my feminist and my Jewish values. Read a full reflection on my experience here and watch a clip my arrest here and below!
THRILLED to announce that I have been selected to be one of the 2018-2019 Alma Ambassadors! As an ambassador, I will have the opportunity to rep Alma (who I have written for quite a bit!) via my social media, encourage readership and newsletter signups, and, of course, more writing! Make sure to check this site […]
I am SO proud of this piece. I wrote this pretty close to when the news broke of Session’s rollback of asylum protections but struggled for weeks to find a place that would publish it. Thank you so much to Jewish Women’s Archive for believing in it! Read it here. “We cannot forget domestic violence survivors at […]
I am so excited this piece is up! I explore what ways that mikvah, a Jewish ritual bath, is being reclaimed and revamped as a progressive, feminist, MODERN, practice. Check it here!
