Tikkun Leyl Shavuot:
Reading Torah from a Transgender Perspective
We are joining with Sha’ar Zahav in celebrating the holiday of Shavuot with deep learning into the night. Our featured teacher will be Joy Ladin, Gottesman Chair in English at Yeshiva University. Ladin is the first openly transgender employee of an Orthodox Jewish institution. Her memoir, Through the Door of Life: A Jewish Journey Between Genders, was a finalist for a National Jewish Book Award.
