CTC was a PROUD to Co-Sponsor Pride Shabbat 2022.

In 2022 Pride Shabbat was held in person and virtually. We were delighted that we could come together to celebrate, hear speakers and music, and share thoughts about freedom and justice for all.
Pride Shabbat is open to the community and is a celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Jews, friends, families, and allies of all ages. Pride Shabbat is an critical opportunity for our community to come together and share joyous and meaningful prayer in an inclusive environment.
