I am a lecturer at the Department of History of Kibbutzim College and teaching fellow at the NCJW Women and Gender Studies Program at Tel Aviv University. My research interests are: women in the Holocaust, Holocaust and gender, Holocaust commemoration in Israeli society, women survivors of the Holocaust, and the history of Israeli women.

My book, To the Unknown Sister: Holocaust Heroines in Israeli Society (Hakibbutz Hameuchad Publishing Group, Israel) was awarded the 2011 Mordechai-Ish Shalom Prize by the Yad Itzhak Ben-Zvi Institute in Jerusalem. I give lectures in various women's forums, and my writings often appear in the daily press. 

Since 2011, I have led “Raising Value: Returning Women to History, a pioneering project with students. Instead of a taking test or submitting papers, they explore the stories of influential women in Israeli history, using primary sources, interviews and previously published research work. The students write encyclopedic entries, and publish them online on popular internet platforms. More than eighty of the entries appeared on Wikipedia. Since 2016 the project is published on P.SEE, an Israeli feminist portal.
