Jewish Gender Support Group Starting

August 8th  4:30 pm-5:30 pm  This is an informal support group for those Jewish young adults, ages 13-20, who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming/non-binary. You do not need to be affiliated with Congregation Shir Tikvah to attend. This is not a replacement for professional mental health services but will serve as a place for like-minded folks to get together and share their experiences. We have an amazing community and many of us have supportive family and friends, but there is nothing like being able to sit with others who are in a similar place and share in each other’s transness and non-binaryness. Join us for an hour for hanging out and talking and support! There will be some nosh because we are Jews after all 🙂 The group will be facilitated by Rabbinic Intern Davina Bookbinder, a proud Jewish trans woman herself.
