Joy Ladin: Journey of Understanding (Tuesday, Aug 15, 2017 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Joy Ladin
Joy Ladin is the first openly transgender member of an Orthodox Jewish institution.

As part of her tour series, Joy wants to engage politically and culturally conservative groups in respectful conversations about gender and how gender is connected to religion, tradition and community.

Her purpose in these conversations is not to change or judge others’ beliefs or ways of life, or to advocate for LGBTQ rights.

Her goal is to promote understanding by listening, learning and demonstrating respect for others’ views, to learn what gender means and how it works in their families and communities, and to understand the concerns – practical, religious and emotional – that arise when they consider transgender people and issues.

Through these conversations, she hopes we can help stitch back together a nation that, when it comes to gender, religion, tradition and community, often feels like it is being ripped apart.
