"Since 2005 Lauren has written her sparkling 'Bubkes' column for Hashalom, the oldest Jewish newspaper in the country. The monthly columns have covered a wide range of topics from the pressures of post-graduate studies to perinatal depression, to cooking, childrearing and fashion. Each column is clearly written and is always submitted timeously. Lauren has also written countless reports for Hashalom on the activities of the communal organizations and in-depth articles on major events."
