A Conversation with Author & Activist Abby Stein

A Journey from Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi to Transgender Woman
Join us as we welcome Abby Stein, author of “Becoming Eve: My Journey from Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi to Transgender Woman” to share her powerful story. She will take us through her journey from being born and raised in a Hasidic family of rabbinic descent to completing a rabbinical degree to leaving the Hasidic world to explore a self-determined life. Abby came out as a woman of trans experience in 2015. Since coming out, she has been working to raise support and awareness for trans rights and those leaving Ultra-Orthodoxy. Abby Stein is a Jewish educator, author, speaker, and activist. She is a direct descendant of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidic Judaism. Abby attended Yeshiva, completing a rabbinical degree in 2011. Her story has been covered in the New York Times, New York Post, Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, Jewish Daily Forward, Daily Mail, NBC, Vogue, InStyle, and more, as well as live appearances on CNN, Fox News, HuffPost Live, ShowTime, NowThis, PopSugar, and internationally. In 2016, Abby was named by The Jewish Week as one of the “36 Under 36” young Jews who are inspiring change in the world. In 2018 she was awarded the Pride Award by the Brooklyn Borough President. She studied gender studies and political science at Columbia University in New York City. A private Zoom link will be sent in advance of the program.
