�Transgender and Jewish� explores the world of trans Jews as they help congregations and denominations move beyond rigid definitions of male and female. Trans Jews direct summer camps, write ritual and even lead prayer services as rabbis. Yet while non-Orthodox venues have made enormous strides in welcoming gay and lesbian members in recent decades, some trans people say they still feel like outsiders in Jewish settings, including the synagogues or camps they once attended.

The people in this book and their communities are finding ways for trans Jews to take their place in mainstream Jewish life. These are their stories.

A book that is long overdue, Transgender and Jewish introduces us to a segment of our community that has too long been in the shadows and encourages us to extend our arms in fellowship and love to our trans brothers and sisters..
