Den f√łrste bog om transk√łnnedes liv og deres erfaringer med at opfylde de j√łdiske ritualer. Hidtil har der alene v√¶ret artikler derom p√• internettet.
I bogen fokuserer forfatterene p√• forskellige aspekter af transk√łnnedes forhold til den j√łdiske tro, hvad der kan g√łres for at v√¶re mere im√łdekomne over for transk√łnnede og om k√łnsskifte i relation til den j√łdiske tro.

Bogen er inddelt i tre temaer: 1) Retsforhold og næstekærlighed. 2) Hjælpsomhed og Torah. 3) Undervisning, vejledning og lovforhold.

Bogen henvender sig b√•de til transk√łnnede, jurister, behandlere og andre med interesse for disse forhold.

Noach Dzmura, der har redigeret bogen, er 47 √•r og kvinde til mand transk√łnnet. Han er konverteret til den j√łdiske tro og har en mastergrad i j√łdiske studier fra Berkeleys University.
