In that world Abby attended Yeshiva, and became a rabbi in 2011. She left the Hasidic world the following year, and came out as a trans-woman in 2015. Her story has been covered in publications such as the New York Times, New York Post, WSJ, New York Magazine. In 2016 Abby was named by The Jewish Week as one of their “36 Under 36” emerging Jewish leaders.
