Join us for an uplifting outdoor Shabbat service under the tent centered around inclusion and diversity as we celebrate the LGBTQ community!

Featuring a guest sermon by Chicago-based writer/performer/educator Mac Cherney–and then during our rainbow-themed oneg, enjoy an interactive, positive, and all-ages-appropriate performance by his drag persona, Jewish bubbie Merriam Levkowitz!

We will also welcome a representative from Hebrew Free Loan and acknowledge their support for growing Jewish families by means of fertility treatments and adoption, including in the queer community.

Committee Members: Chris Harrison, Alissa Koloff, Emily Korotkin, Stacy Korotkin, Marc Zupmore.

Rainbow challah baked by Laura Gottlieb.
