The Jewish Outreach and Education project

The Jewish Outreach and Education Project
The Jewish Federation of Los Angeles supported a pilot project that brought our films and customized study guide into Jewish day schools, religious schools, summer camps and other organizations that provide programming for Jewish youth. We oriented teachers, administrators and other educators on the latest issues facing transgender and gender expansive youth, and trained them on how to use our resources in the classroom to create inclusive communities, all seen through the lens of Jewish values and teachings.
Outreach & Education
We provided presentations for Jewish educators and youth by Patrick Rock, an educator with over a decade of experience working on transgender youth awareness and advocacy efforts since coming out as transgender at his own Jewish Day School, Barrack Hebrew Academy. Patrick led workshops with administrators, teachers and youth to develop gender-inclusive practices within Jewish educational spaces. These workshops were centered on our films and are shaped to meet the needs of each individual educational community.
