Jewish tradition has long engaged with gender diversity and the idea of gender beyond a binary concept, but what does Judaism have to say about being transgender today? In a class led by Rabbi Rachel Ackerman of LGBTQ-affirming synagogue Temple Shalom, explore texts and various interpretations of the first adam (human being) as a framework for discussing current transgender issues.
