BYOB: Bring Your Own Book is Beth Tzedec's new book club for 20s and 30s.
In honour of Pride month, we are excited to launch this new monthly group with an opportunity to hear from author and activist Abby Stein, about her recent book, Becoming Eve.
Abby Stein is a Jewish educator, author, speaker and activist. She was born and raised in a Hasidic family of rabbinic descent and is a direct descendant of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidic Judaism. Abby attended Yeshiva, completing a rabbinical degree in 2011. In 2012, she left the Hasidic world to explore a self-determined life. In 2015, Abby came out as a woman of trans experience. Since coming out, she has been working to raise support and awareness for trans rights and those leaving Ultra-Orthodoxy.
Her memoir Becoming Eve: My Journey from Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi to Transgender Woman was published by Seal Press in November 2019.
Zoom link will be provided upon registration. Registration required via Eventbrite.
Becoming Eve is available as a hardcover book, Kindle or even a free audiobook (with an Audible free trial). Find it on Amazon here.
As a bonus, there will be a special draw the evening of the event for a signed copy of Becoming Eve.
Space is limited, so register today!
Please note that Zoom participation is limited to 20s and 30s, but the program will be broadcasted to Beth Tzedec's Youtube page and available to all.
