We are thrilled to announce our 2020 Hachamat Lev Honorees:

Rabbi Sandra Lawson– Pioneering community builder, activist, and innovative educator. As the Associate Chaplain for Jewish Life and Hillel Jewish Educator at Elon University, Rabbi Lawson views Jewish life and the world through a Black, queer lens in order to build welcoming communities where all people come together.

Abby Stein– Groundbreaking activist, author, and speaker. In 2012, Abby left the Hasidic world and came out as a woman of trans experience. Since coming out, Abby has been working to raise support and awareness for those leaving Ultra-Orthodoxy as well as for trans rights in the Jewish community and broader world.

And the 2020 Landres Courage for Dignity Award recipient:

Rabbi Mike Moskowitz– Visionary activist, scholar, and educator. Rabbi Moskowitz is the Scholar-in-Residence for Trans and Queer Jewish Studies at Congregation Beit Simchat Torah – CBST, the world’s largest LGBTQ synagogue. Rabbi Moskowitz is a deeply traditional and radically progressive advocate for trans rights and LGBTQ equality.
