Genderqueer Torah with Jericho Vincent. A CLGS Jewish Queeries Series Event!

Thursday, October 15th 2020, 1:00pm to 2:15pm
ONLINE at, 1798 Scenic Avenue Berkeley, CA 94709

Join Jericho Vincent, a genderqueer post-ultra-Orthodox Jew, in an exploration of gender, Torah, and authenticity.

  • What does Judaism have to teach us about gender?
  • In what ways might understanding genderqueer identities expand and deepen the spiritual lives of all people?
  • Who do we have to prove ourselves to as we claim our gender identities, and how is that process similar to claiming a spiritual identity?

Drawing together ancient sources, personal stories, and a provocative series of paintings, Jericho will offer new pathways to authenticity and connection through gender and Torah.

Jericho Vincent is the author of the memoir Cut Me Loose and the co-author of Legends of the Talmud.  Their essays on trauma, gender, and Judaism have appeared in The New York TimesThe RumpusMask Magazine, SalonThe Daily Beast, and The Cut.
