Becoming Eve with Abby Stein

A Gay and A NonGay

By James Barr and Dan Hudson

Becoming Eve with Abby Stein

Wednesday, 24 February

'I prayed to God to make me a girl'. James and Dan are joined from New York by Abby Stein - the first woman and the first transgender woman to be ordained as a rabbi by an orthodox institution. She talks about her life growing up in a strict community, coming out - first as non-religious and again as transgender - and offers a ray of hope to LGBTQ+ people trapped by orthodox institutions. Abby is the first openly transgender woman raised in a Hasidic community, this is her story.
