"TransTorah" just launched

Received today from our friend Navah (soon to be Rav Nav) --

Dear Hevre:
We are thrilled to announce the official launch of the TransTorah website:!

TransTorah's mission is to help people of all genders to fully access and transform Jewish tradition, and to help Jewish communities be welcoming sanctuaries for people of all genders.

Our website offers links to many trans-friendly services and organizations, as well as a groundbreaking collection of trans and genderqueer resources. These include ritual, liturgy, sermons, and d'vrei torah (commentary on the torah), as well as educational materials and essays on gender diversity and judaism.
Please note that TransTorah is a collective of like-minded individuals, not a non-profit or an organization. It is a labor of love that doesn't include little things like office furniture, staff, or IRS documentation. We would love to hear from you - especially if you do similar work and would like to be added to our referral list - however please be patient with us, as we may not be able to respond as quickly as we'd like.

Thanks for your support and for sharing this resource with your communities.

Blessings and Respect –
the TransTorah collective: rabbinical student Reuben Zellman, Maggid Jhos Singer, Rabbi Elliot Kukla, scholar Max K. Strassfeld, rabbnical student Ari Lev Fornari, and artist Micah Bazant
