My forthcoming book For Women and Girls Only. Reshaping Jewish Orthodoxy Through The Arts in the Digital Age will be published by New York University Press in the Spring of 2024. It tells the captivating stories of ultra-Orthodox Jewish women alongside the ones who broke away from religion, and their use of the arts to reshape Orthodoxy.

During the academic year 2023-2024, I will be a research fellow at the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. I will develop a new research project on music, spirituality, and healing in Orthodox Jewish Circles.
