Pride Shabbat - Calling All Congregants

Bet Torah is hosting an LGBTQ+ Pride Shabbat on Saturday morning, June 5, 2021.  This is a great way for our Bet Torah family to support one another and the greater LGBTQ+ community.

We invite you to be a part of this, our first Pride Shabbat service. If you are interested in leading a prayer, speaking about your experience, offering thoughts in general or in the form of a d’var Torah, reading Torah, or anything else that feels right to you, we welcome your participation.

Involvement from our community will enrich the service, and bring warmth and lovingkindness to celebrate the diversity that makes up who we are at Bet Torah.  Please contact Rabbi Brusso and Rabbi Sacks if you are interested in participating.

We look forward to hearing from you!
