Welcome to Whole Hearted, a place to hear the stories of transgender and gender-nonconforming Jews and explore resources for congregations and Jewish communities.


Here’s what Jake Bogner told us when we approached him about sharing his story on camera: “ If telling my story could help even one young person who is struggling right now, then yes, let’s do this.” We are so grateful he did.



Your donation provides the support we need to tell Jake’s full story and share the stories of others who have asked to participate. Creating each short film costs approximately $8,000. Will you help us share three stories in 2018?
