Save the date: Eshel, that creates community and acceptance for LGBT Jews and their families in Orthodox communities, plan a retreat weekend in January for Orthodox or traditional LGBT Jews in Connecticut.
This weekend will bring together LGBT Orthodox Jews to celebrate together; we will have spirited davening (prayer), delicious healthy kosher food, shiurim (classes), singing, and sessions relevant to our lives as LGBT frum Jews.
There will be plenty of time scheduled to hang out, sit by the fireplace on Saturday night, and get to know all the members of this growing community. This will be a fun and spiritually uplifting weekend.
Who is this for?
Orthodox or traditional LGBT Jews. We also welcome formerly Orthodox, Ortho-curious and anyone who wants to experience a traditional Shabbat with other LGBT Jews.
Our retreats draw from the many talents of our participants. There is a wide range of topics that we explore during the weekend, and modalities of learning, including text study, topics on identity, learning new songs, skills training, and more.
Let us know what you would like to share with the rest of the participants!
