In today’s pages of Talmud, the Talmud and the trans experience

May 27, 2022

Today’s pages of Talmud, Yevamot 81 and 82, give us an accounting of several nonbinary gender expressions. Shoshanna Wechter, a woman of trans experience, joins us to talk about how reading the rabbinic deliberations makes her feel, and what this hotly debated modern subject can learn from Judaism’s ancient wisdom. What does being in the women’s section of the synagogue feel like for Shoshanna? Listen and find out.
