On this Shabbat, which falls on International Transgender Day of Visibility March 31, we are privileged to welcome Dr. Joy Ladin, who has long worked at the tangled intersection of literature, Judaism, and transgender identity. As she prepares to share some of her poetry and part her story with our community, she offers the following, “As Jews and transgender and nonbinary people face increasing hostility and violence, our visibility – our public embrace of what makes us who we are – is crucial, not just for us, but for the world that needs our wisdom, our strength, our truths.” We could not agree more and we are blessed that Dr. Ladin will share her Torah–her wisdom, strength, and truth–with CRS.
Share Shabbat with family, friends—old ones and new—and community. Join us for meaningful Shabbat worship, study and hospitality.
Each Friday evening the Rodeph Sholom community joins together to welcome Shabbat in a joyful service of prayer, music, and moments of quiet contemplation. Our Erev Shabbat service is a perfect way to end the week and begin recharging for the week ahead.
Everyone is welcome—no membership is necessary. Proof of vaccination with appropriate boosters is required and masks are optional—but strongly encouraged. See more information here.
