Abby Stein’s Hasidic community in Williamsburg believed that, as a tenth-generation descendant of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidic Judaism, she was destined to be a rabbinic leader. They also believed she was a boy. But Abby felt certain at a young age that she was a girl, and eventually orchestrated a personal exodus from ultra-Orthodox manhood to live as a woman–a radical choice that forced her to leave her home, her family, and her way of life. Her new memoir, “Becoming Eve: My Journey from Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi to Transgender Woman,” will be published by Seal Press in November.
