Leiah Moser.

Leiah Moser found her way to Judaism after a year spent reading Jewish books in her off-hours whilst teaching English in Japan. The years since then have been an ongoing process of immersing herself ever more deeply in the texts and traditions of her adopted people, a process which ultimately led to her becoming a student at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. When she’s not busy doing rabbi stuff, she is generally writing or painting. Her work can be found on her blog, Dag Gadol, as well as in the upcoming anthology Faithfully Feminist.

Being a Woman

For me—and, I imagine, a lot of other trans women out there—the recent flurry of media attention around the appearance of Caitlyn Jenner in Vanity Fair has given rise to a whole complicated array of feelings, not the least of which may be longing for a time when everybody will finally stop talking about Caitlyn Jenner.
