Judaism and Queerness

Please see the writing by Jewish individuals that speak to and uphold the relationship between Judaism and Queerness. Although this group and all of our services are secular and open to all, JFSE upholds, respects, and was founded on Jewish values,

The following  D’Var Torah based on a poem called Twilight People – an ode to Transgender Jewish individuals, was written and shared by one of the Jewish Federation’s 2022 Summer students. This D’Var Torah addresses and explores the beauty in the in-between that is queerness. 


The article linked below is written by a Transgender Rabbi, Elliot Kukla (he/they), from the United States informs about the range of genders recognized in Judaism and shares their passion and agenda in their work.
