Hi all! I’m off to Harvard Divinity School this fall to study the theology behind Christian Evangelical and Fundamentalist movements in the Americas. I started a GoFundMe campaign to help offset some of the initial costs like dorm deposit, summer class tuition (I have 2 credits to finish up on my BA in June) and moving expenses. Your donation – (every cent counts!) would mean … Continue reading Fund Shiksaism’s Road to Harvard!
Whaaaaaaat!? I know. Super psyched (understatement…) to report that I was accepted into Harvard Divinity School!
I tried to quote the Whitney Houston song…not sure if that translated title wise.

I have started what is hopefully my final year of undergrad (please note this should’ve happened 16 years ago…)! Continue reading “Go Hawks!”
I’ve been trying to get into the head space of what draws the uber religious voter to Republican nominee Donald Trump.

I have been asked to pen a post for Shiksaism, as I am one … Continue reading Trump & the Evangelicals
