TRANS JEWS ARE HERE: A CONVENING
Friday, March 29 through Sunday, March 31
An uplifting and educational convening of trans Jews, co-chaired by Seth M. Marnin and Jillian T. Weiss; led by Convening Director, Rafi Daugherty.
The Trans Jews are Here convening brought together trans and non-binary Jewish individuals, including some of our very own spiritual leaders, artists, educators, performers, and more, to celebrate and explore the intersection of transgender identity and Jewish life. Hosted by CBST with Keshet, the convening included Shabbat experiences, workshops, panels, discussions, presentations, and performances. Attendees gathered, learned, and exchanged ideas in a trans-focused Jewish space and came together in joyful celebration! Take a look at some of the resources from the convening below and stay tuned as we add more!
