Trans Jews bring blossoming and vibrancy to our Jewish communities, spaces, rituals, texts, and traditions. Everything is growing and changing, and we are bringing unique and important leadership to enliven every aspect of Jewish life, for the thriving of all life and the flourishing of new ways of being everywhere. There's so many beautiful offerings that I can't contain in finite time and internet space, but please let me know what else to add and I will be happy to do so!
