The Place of Trans Torah in Jewish History

Presented as part of the 2021 Trans Jews are Here Convening which celebrated and explored the intersection of transgender identity and Jewish life.

Some Torah is designed to be eternally relevant. Other Torah just tries to speak to what happened yesterday. But Torah built for posterity sometimes fades, while Torah of the moment sometimes lasts forever. This class, given by an ally primarily for other allies, talks about how this paradigm helps us understand the project of Trans Torah.

This program was part of the Trans Jews are Here 2021 Convening at Congregation Beit Simchat Torah held on Trans Day of Visibility, March 31, 2021.
