Emet: Trans and Non-Binary Team

CBST maintains space (currently online!) for transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and gender-expansive people to build community and engage politically at CBST. Emet welcomes people who are questioning. Save-the-date for our next meeting! Sign up for Emet Team updates here or contact transjews@cbst.org or emet@cbst.org for more info. Emet will meet on the first Thursday of each month to learn together with Ze'evi Berman (they/them or ze/zem/zer), CBST’s Guest Cantorial Student, and Ariel Zitny (he/they) Convening Director.
