Wholeness and Sacred Bodies: Gender Diversity and Judaism
As Jews, we are obligated to see one another as b’tzelem Elohim, created in God’s image, and to uphold k’vod habriot, human dignity. What is our obligation to transgender and gender non-conforming people? What has our tradition taught us about our responsibilities to people in our communities who don’t conform to easy distinctions between male and female, man and woman? What can we learn from the rabbis who teach us that Adam was an Androgynous, that Abraham and Sarah were a tumtumim (a category of people who are neither simply male or female)? As we mark International Women’s Day, we will explore a Jewish obligation to gender justice, feminism, and the lives of transgender and gender non-conforming people.
