As we look toward the High Holidays and the beginning of 5782, we at Keshet are asking: what can we do to bring the values of inclusion, equity, and liberation to the world? This summer, we asked seven trans and non-binary teens to reflect on their own experiences and how they understand our Seven Jewish Values for LGBTQ inclusion in their own lives and communities. At a time when trans rights are being challenged and rolled back across the country, these young people can light the way forward as we all work toward a brighter, liberated future for trans and non-binary Jews of all ages.
