“Empowering Women Through Unity and Philanthropy,” a conversation with Abby Stein, author of “Becoming Eve: My Journey from Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi to Transgender Woman,” is set for Wednesday, March 25, at 7 p.m., at a private home in Upper Saddle River. The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education in Rockland is hosting the Women’s Circle event, which includes dinner.
Abby Chava Stein is a 10th-generation descendant of the Ba’al Shem Tov, the founder of chasidim. In 2015, she came out as a woman, and she now works as a trans activist. In 2019, she served on the steering committee for the Women’s March in Washington, and the Jewish Week named her as one of the “36 Under 36” Jews who are affecting change in the world.
The book will be for sale. For more information, go to holocauststudies.org/events or call (845) 574-4099.
