TRANSGENDER DAY of REMEMBRANCE
The World Congress of GLBT Jews: Keshet Ga’avah hosted with Keshet a virtual Transgender Day of Remembrance Memorial Service and Panel Discussion on Thursday, November 19, 2020.
This memorable program was a call to action and featured a short memorial service led by Rabbi Micah Buck-Yael, Keshet’s Director of Education and Training followed by a panel discussion moderated by Ian Brown, At-Large member of WCGLBTJ Steering Committee.
Panelists included Eliana Golberstein Rubashkyn, a Columbian born New Zealander and former stateless refugee. (Eliana was the first case of gender recognition in the world with a U.N. resolution under the international refugee statute of 1951.) and Rabbi Leiah Moser, the rabbi of Reconstructionist Congregation Beth Israel of Ridgewood, NJ.
