this is great! one annoying thing - they use language for describing trans people that id's ppl by the gender they were assigned, so MTF = "trans male" in this book. distracting and inaccurate. also, I think the book is very light on relevant Jewish stuff like Lilith and Purim. Otherwise, an incredible resource - so amazing that this exists!
