CLGS Lavender Lunch - Being Transgender is Kosher

October 11, 2012 at 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Being Transgender is Kosher: Beyond the Binary in Ancient Jewish Texts - Gender diversity is becoming more visible in our communities, and there is an explosion of Jewish scholarship and study about gender categories beyond the male-female binary in ancient Jewish texts.  In this interactive workshop, we will explore our own experiences of gender identity, and use that as jumping off point for diving into texts from the Mishna, Talmud and Hebrew Bible that examine the complexity and variety of human genders.

Lavender Lunches are informal discussions that take place at the Pacific School of Religion during the academic year. They began in the Fall of 2000, and have included events ranging from performance arts to informal talks on a variety of topics related to religion and LGBT issues. Anyone who is interested may attend these free discussions. Please bring your own lunch.

All Lavender Lunches take place Thursday afternoons, 12:30pm to 1:30pm, at Mudd Hall 100, Pacific School of Religion Campus, Berkeley, California.
