I am a doctoral candidate broadly interested in histories of medicine, childhood, gender, and Eastern European Jewry. My dissertation explores transformative Jewish medical projects in interwar Eastern Europe. Specifically, I examine the importance of healthy women (mothers) and children to creating a strong Jewish race and rebuilding a Jewish community almost destroyed by World War I and the Russian Civil War.
