 Currently, Leah is focused on a pilot expanding upon her hit web series "Soon By You", which she writes, directs and stars in. “Soon By You” has attracted coverage from over 50 press outlets, including The New York Post, The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post and The Los Angeles Jewish Journal. It follows 6 twenty-something New Yorkers as they navigate the modern Orthodox Jewish dating scene, one “set up” at a time. The series is popular both within the Jewish community and beyond. Viewers relate to the simple humanity of the show all while getting a glimpse into this fascinating subculture. As one fan commented, "Isn't it ironic that I come from a Muslim background and I find this show totally relevant?" It’s a fresh and surprisingly relatable peek into an alternative way of dating in 2019. A member of the Jewish modern Orthodox community in New York, Leah’s unique firsthand knowledge of this world makes the series all the more authentic.
