Meet the Author: Rabbi Mike Moskowitz’s Graceful Masculinity

Thu Dec 2 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
Event Details
What can we learn from Judaism about toxic forms of masculinity? Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi Moskowitz will fill in the gaps.

Note: This is a 60-minute course running on Thursday, 12/2/21 @ 10am-11am PST. Upon completed registration, your Zoom invitation will be emailed to you 7 days prior to the start time.

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.
