Why is this Pride Seder different from all other Pride Seders?

Every year on Sha’ar Zahav’s LGBTQ Pride Shabbat, we come together to tell the story of our liberation from oppression, to celebrate our freedom, and to re-commit to our activism, remembering that none of us are free until all of us are free. We read from our Pride Haggadah, drink several glasses of a ritual beverage, and point to a seder plate containing items that represent our history.

This year will be the same – and very different. We’ll still read from the Pride Haggadah we created for our first Pride Seder in 2005, but we’ve reduced the text to its bare bones (sorry vegans and vegetarians!) and instead of reading stories and poems written by Sha’ar Zahav members in the past, this year you will have a chance to tell part of your own story, as you mark your place in our history and community.

Please bring a vegetarian dish to feed eight people. Sha’ar Zahav will supply drinks. A $5 donation for members, $10 for non-members is requested to cover materials. Please RSVP by June 17 by calling or emailing the office at 415-861-6932 or office@shaarzahav.org.
