Gender Identity and Judaism Lunch & Learn with Rabbi Garth

Saturday, July 22, 2023 4 Av 5783

11:00 AM - 1:30 PM

Jewish law and transgender identity

As more and more Jews identify as transgender, and more and more transgender Jews choose to remain within the observant Jewish community, questions arise about how transgender Jews fit into the traditional gender categories when it comes to matters of Jewish law. In seeking to answer these questions, today's rabbis are able to draw on a rich tradition, going back thousands of years, of exploring cases that do not fit neatly or simply into existing legal categories, including the gender binary. Rabbi Silberstein will explore some contemporary rabbinic thinking on this important topic over a light lunch immediately following Shabbat morning services.
