One of today's most hot-button topics has to do with what it means to be transgender. Caught in the confusion of this are the individuals, couples, and families who struggle with this reality on a personal, and spiritual level. This presentation will touch upon what it means to be transgender, the experiences a transgender person might have, the effects on the family, and ways the Jewish community has made efforts to reach out in support. Regardless of our own assumptions, and biases, this presentation will equip the participant in ways to make respectful sense of, and be empathetic to, those who identify as transgender – along with their friends and family.
