  • This episode of TJC’s THE SALON features the first openly transgender professor at Yeshiva University, Joy Ladin, along with independent filmmaker Liz Nord and performer Allison Goldberg. With hosts Jane Eisner, Editor-in-Chief of the Forward, and Rachel Sklar, founder of Change the Ratio, our panel covers everything from Obama’s support of same-sex marriage to the firing of a teacher for undergoing IVF treatments to the popularity of the show “Girls.”

    Allison Goldberg is co-creative director of Lively Productions, and she co-creates, produces and performs in an ongoing series called “Blogologues,” in which an ensemble of actors perform the internet completely verbatim, giving voice to blog posts, craigslist posts, tweets and more.

    Joy Ladin is the first openly transgender professor at Yeshiva University, or any Orthodox institution. She is the author of the memoir Through the Door of Life: A Jewish Journey Between Genders, in addition to five books of poetry. Her sixth book of poetry, The Definition of Joy, will be out in June 2012.

    Liz Nord is a documentary filmmaker and multimedia producer currently working on the film “Battle for Jerusalem,” about a Modern Orthodox City Councilwoman in Jerusalem fighting against the gender discrimination policies of her ultra-Orthodox counterparts.
