Trans Shabbat is back in Boston, just in time for Transgender Day of Visibility!
Trans Shabbat is an intentional space for transgender, gender nonconforming (GNC), and non-binary Jews intended to lift up and celebrate the many ways we exist vibrantly in the Jewish community. Celebrate Shabbat in a space of ritual, song, warmth, and food that is by and for trans, GNC, and non-binary people and their guests.
Services are egalitarian, participatory, and led by a trans, GNC, and non-binary Keshet members in a style of their choosing. Please bring a vegetarian dish, dessert, or beverage to share for our potluck dinner; label items with potential allergens. We’ll be providing a few kosher dishes.
In order to hold to the intention of Trans Shabbat, non-trans (cisgender) folks are asked to support this effort by attending only at the invitation of a trans, GNC, and/or non-binary person and by helping to get the word out.
NOTE: Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) will be photographing this event to reflect Boston’s Jewish community prior to the start of Shabbat. If you are uncomfortable being photographed, please let CJP or Keshet staff at the event know, and your wishes will be respected.
MBTA accessible, kosher food, and all-gender bathrooms available.
Do you have questions or want to get involved? Contact our Boston Community Programs Manager, Sho Garland.
Please RSVP by March 29, 2017.
