CTC is a PROUD to Co-Sponsor Pride Shabbat 2021.

In 2021 Pride Shabbat will again be held virtually. In 2020 over 300 people gathered on Zoom to celebrate, hear speakers and music, and share thoughts about freedom and justice for all. The beautiful service was very moving.
Pride Shabbat is open to the entire Jewish community, we celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Jews. With friends, allies, and families by our side. Pride Shabbat is an opportunity for our community to come together and share joyous and meaningful prayer in an inclusive environment that welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning Jews and their friends and families.
