Her writing has been published in the Washington Post, Politico Magazine, Tablet and Wired. She is also the author of a recent five-part series, Who Killed Kesher's Rabbi? The series, which details the period of R'Rabinowitz's passing,  gives an in-depth look into not only the case itself, but Rabinowitz’s life before his death and the impact on Kesher Israel's tight-knit congregation.
