A Discussion with Rabbi Jay Michaelson
Journalist, professor, author, and LGBTQ activist

Gender non-conformity is found throughout history, in the Jewish tradition in particular. And like gay and lesbian lives a generation ago, transgender lives are, today, often the subject of intense debate, persecution, and ignorance.
The renowned Rabbi Michaelson will lead us in exploring the spectrum of gender as it appears in Biblical heroes, Jewish ethics, and Jewish theology.
No one will be shamed or canceled in this talk! Rather, we’ll take on this exploration in the spirit of curiosity, joy, and personal growth.
