Joy Ladin presents her latest book, Through the Door of Life: A Jewish Journey Between Genders
Cambridge, MA 02139
Joy Ladin made headlines when the Yeshiva University professor became the first openly transgender employee of an Orthodox Jewish institution. Join us for a reading and discussion with Joy, a Keshet board member, that will consider how gender transition can be thought about in terms of Jewish tradition, how recognizing transgender identities can open new perspectives onto traditional Jewish texts and teachings, and how Jewish communities can recognize and welcome transgender members.
Sponsored by Congregation Eitz Chayim, Keshet, and Nehirim.
Time: 2 pm
Where: Congregation Eitz Chayim, 136 Magazine Street Cambridge
RSVP by 6/21
All gender bathrooms
