Gender identity questions surface recently as the buzz of “Baby Storm,” the infant being raised gender-neutral, hits the media. On Wednesday, July 20, 2011, Elizabeth Schwartz moderates Next@19th’s gender secrecy debate, a topic that sweeps the nation as an increasing number of families choose to conceal their children’s gender identities in effort to raise them in a gender-neutral environment.

In a format modeled after the ancient Sanhedrin which legislated Jewish law, ideas will be introduced by a central facilitator and put to audiences for debate. Join the Next@19th community as they discuss how the Jewish culture and this new controversial way of parenting can influence your child’s upbringing.
