ReMapping the Road from Sinai

By Judith Plaskow, Elliot-Rose Kukla

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2007

Professor Judith Plaskow and Rabbi Elliot Rose Kukla explore the potential and limits of a shared transgender and feminist movement. Both agree that the multiplication of genders and not the dissolution of gender serves the goals of both feminism and transgender activism. Furthermore, Plaskow invokes a transgender image of God that builds on the feminist project of recovering the female aspects of God but highlights the shifting nature of the divine gender and the ultimately problematic nature of gender categories.
