Trans Jews are Here

Trans Day of Remembrance 2021

November 20 is Trans Day of Remembrance, a sacred day in which we honor the memories of our trans, non-binary, and gender nonconforming family and friends that we have lost to acts of anti-transgender violence. Visit CBST's Trans Day of Remembrance page for programming, resources, and more info. 

Trans Jews are Here 2021 Convening

The Trans Jews are Here 2021 Convening took place on Trans Day of Visibility - Wednesday, March 31, 2021. The convening was held online, with a full day of trans, Jewish - focused programming ranging from ritual to art to education and more. There was also an allyship track for cisgender friends, family, and community members to participate and learn.

  • Recordings Playlist - For those who couldn’t make it, or just want to revisit the rich and profound day of programming, we invite you to access this playlist featuring all the recordings from the day-of (keep in mind some programs were intentionally not recorded to respect the wishes of program leaders and participants).
