Rabbi Mike Moskowitz’s life and professional path shifted after a member of his immediate family began their gender transition. As an Ultra-Orthodox community leader and author, this turning point inspired him to become an advocate and ally to the transgender community, actively working to fill a void in Jewish thought and tradition.
Join him for a text-based study and a conversation about his latest book, Graceful Masculinity, in which he explores the term toxic masculinity and considers gendered attributes through rabbinic sources.
