Join us for an evening featuring Abby Stein, Jewish educator, author, speaker and activist, as she discusses her soon-to-be-released, coming-of-age memoir, Becoming Eve: My Journey from Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi to Transgender Woman.

Adult audience only, please.

Abby Stein was born and raised in a Hasidic family of rabbinic descent, and is a direct descendent of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidic Judaism. Abby attended Yeshiva, completing a rabbinical degree in 2011. In 2012, she left the Hasidic world to explore a self-determined life. In 2015 Abby came out as a woman of trans experience. Since coming out, she has been working to raise support and awareness for trans rights and those leaving Ultra-Orthodoxy.

Our co-sponsors include: Oshman Family Jewish Community Center, Peninsula Jewish Community Center, Federation Philanthropy Partners, Kehillah Jewish High School, Congregation Beth Am, Congregation Beth Jacob, and Congregation Kol Emeth.
