Book Description

“Transgender and Jewish” explores the world of trans Jews as they help congregations and denominations move beyond rigid definitions of male and female. Trans Jews direct summer camps, write ritual and even lead prayer services as rabbis. Yet while non-Orthodox venues have made enormous strides in welcoming gay and lesbian members in recent decades, some trans people say they still feel like outsiders in Jewish settings, including the synagogues or camps they once attended.

The people in this book and their communities are finding ways for trans Jews to take their place in mainstream Jewish life. These are their stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read April 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had already read a couple of articles in the Forward on the subject, but the variety of experiences and perspectives in this collection (which also include many by people not born into the Jewish tradition) are incredibly interesting and illuminating. A bit short, but well worth the price.
