Becoming Eve Zusammenfassung

Becoming Eve: My Journey from Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi to Transgender Woman Abby Stein

Abby Chava Stein was raised in a Hasidic Jewish community in Brooklyn, profoundly isolated in a culture that lives according to the laws and practices of an eighteenth-century Eastern European enclave, speaking only Yiddish and Hebrew and shunning modern life. Stein was born as the first son in a rabbinical dynastic family, poised to become a leader of the next generation of Hasidic Jews. But Stein felt certain at a young age that she was a girl. Without access to TV or the internet and never taught English, she suppressed her desire for a new body while looking for answers wherever she could find them, from forbidden religious texts to smuggled secular examinations of faith. Finally, she orchestrated a personal exodus from ultra-Orthodox manhood into mainstream femininity-a radical choice that forced her to leave her home, her family and her way of life.

Über Abby Stein

Abby Chava Stein is the tenth-generation descendant of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of the Hasidic movement. In 2015, Stein 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, DC and she was named by the Jewish Week as one of the "36 Under 36" young Jews who are effecting change in the world. She lives in New York City.
