Through the Door of Life: A Jewish Journey Between Genders - Joy Ladin Presented by Silver Spring Village. In the first half of this talk, Joy Ladin will use her experiences growing up as a transgender child in hiding and later as the first openly transgender employee of an Orthodox Jewish institution (Yeshiva University) as the basis of an exploration of how notions of gender are changing and clashing with traditional views. Personal anecdotes will help illuminate the stakes for individuals, communities, and religious traditions. In the second half, she will talk about how her journeys between genders and Jews have inspired and shaped her work as a writer and poet.
