Insuring that your community is welcoming and inclusive.
As transgender identities become more prevalent in media and culture, there will inevitably be more transgender Jewish campers and youth. As an educator, one is constantly on the lookout for ways to be more inclusive and more effective. This is a letter initially written to the Bronfman Youth Fellowship staff for the purpose of giving concrete advice on how to be inclusive of transgender identities inside a Jewish setting. Here, I’ve edited it for a wider audience with the intention of being used as a source text to guide Jewish discussion on transinclusion. This letter includes both my personal experience and professional advice. I hope you find it to be a useful tool.
