Intergenerational Pride Seder

Saturday, June 22 • 6:00 pm • $10 for members, $15 for non-members pay at door • Sha’ar Zahav, 290 Dolores Street

This Pride you are invited to a ritual dinner modeled on a Passover Seder that will celebrate LGBTQI Jewish history and identities. Woven through a shared reading of our of community haggadah will be a cross-generational conversation about what it means to be LGBTQI and allies in our current climate.

A Pride Seder is a ritual and a meal that tells the story of the liberation of LGBT people, much as the Passover Seder tells the story of the liberation of the Jews.

The dinner will be potluck style. We ask that you bring a vegetarian side dish that serves 5 people. Sha’ar Zahav will provide the main course.

Please make your $10 (per person) member or $15 (per person) guest donation by clicking here.
