Trans Halakha Project

The Jewish community has been blessed with the increased visibility of trans, intersex, non-binary, and gender non-conforming folks.

The unique lives, bodies, and experiences of this growing subset of our community demands a new halakha (pathways and practices of Jewish expression). The Trans Halakha Project seeks to empower and nourish the trans Jews whose experiences are not yet at the center of halakhic exploration.

SVARA’s Trans Halakha Project has several distinct goals:

  1. Create euphoric and celebratory opportunities for trans Jews to learn and explore their personal relationship to halakha
  2. Curate existing and developing resources that have been created for trans Jews, by trans Jews.
  3. Develop new halakhic literature that addresses the needs and experiences of trans Jews authentically and without reservation
