Mark your calendars for a festive celebration of Sha’ar Zahav’s 40th Anniversary!

The weekend will feature a catered Shabbat dinner on February 23, opportunities to learn from our members who have become clergy, and a blow-out 40th Anniversary Gender Schmear, LGBTQ Purim party with Keshet on February 24.

Since our founding in 1977 as a spiritual home for LGBTQ Jews, we offer the warmth and comfort of chosen family — embracing a diversity of individuals of all sexualities, genders, races and abilities, as well as interfaith homes. Come celebrate our history and continued vibrancy as a diverse, Jewish community in San Francisco!

Attending clergy will include: Renee Bauer, Leslie Bergson, Nicole Bloom, Dev Felder-Noily, Elliot Kukla, Abbe Lyons, Andrew Ramer, Jhos Singer, Howard Steiermann, Eric Weiss and Reuben Zellman.
