My Linda Problem

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 […]

First Relationship Building Institute in the books!

I can’t believe that I only get to have ONE RBI before graduating! I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to connect with my peers, learn from some of the greats, and win a round of bowling (still not sure how that happened. Check out my reflection here!    

I’m not your ‘Jewish Mother’

I have to be honest: Though I know every group of friends has someone who inevitably becomes the ‘mom,’ I don’t love to be labelled as the Jewish mom of the friend group. So, for my first piece for one of my favorite websites, Alma, I explain why.    

Press Clip: Queer College Women On How They Are Acting Up & Celebrating Pride in 2018

A few days ago, I wrote about why I chose to leave the country and attend Pride in Tel Aviv. Later, I was interviewed by HerCampus about my experience. Read the piece here!    

Tel Aviv Pride

What does Pride mean for me? In the US, fear. Fear that a fascist government will soon take away my basic human and civil rights to live my life the way I choose to as a bisexual woman. Anxiety that at any moment, a supporter of the 45th’s regime will harm me-verbally or physically. And […]

A Bill to Condemn Antisemitism

After weeks of organizing, hundreds of emails, hours and hours and hours of work, my semester finally feels complete. But not because my classes have ended or my finals are done. Because my bill has finally passed through the Undergraduate Senate. I knew I would be creating this bill early on, only a few days […]

When faith-based service is faith-prohibitive.

I talk a lot about antisemitism on this blog. But I don’t talk a lot about my own beliefs. So let me begin by saying I am deeply and profoundly moved by the Jewish call to service unto others. I deeply believe in Deuteronomy 16:20, ‘Justice, justice you shall pursue’  and I am moved by […]

Press Clip: “Jewish prayer draws more than 100 attendees after ‘difficult week’ for community”

The past few weeks have been incredibly painful for the Jewish community, with the recent spate of antisemitism happening at George Washington University. In summary, a few years back an undergraduate senator made virulently antisemitic comments regarding the Jewish Student Association and GW Hillel. Then, this senator (after being allowed to remain in his position) […]

Press Clip: Anti-Semitic Flyers Depicting A Parkland Student Found On College Campus

A few weeks ago, I was approached by a reporter for Refinery29, Natalie Gontcharova, about a second antisemitic postering incident that took place on my campus.  I am very excited as she featured my website and the curriculum I’ve created around antisemitism on college campuses. Read the full story here.

Curriculum: A Dialogue on Antisemitism

Background: Antisemitism is a growing phenomenon across the United States and Europe and college campuses are particularly vulnerable. But, strangely, there aren’t a lot of resources to teach this complex form of oppression at an age-appropriate level for college students. This is an attempt to bridge that gap. Goals: To understand the history of antisemitism and […]
