Pride Shabbat

June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$25

With Pride Month approaching, we invite you to our annual community-wide Pride Shabbat 2024. We will gather as a diverse Jewish community to celebrate both Pride and Shabbat in our LGBTQ+ Jewish wholeness. Please join us on June 21 from 6:00-9:00pm for a Pride Shabbat service, followed by a vegetarian dinner. This year’s Pride Shabbat will take place at the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre, located at 750 Spadina Ave.

This event centres LGBTQ+ Jewish community members. Allies to both Jewish and LGBTQ+ communities are more than welcome to join us. Families are encouraged to bring children, with programming offered by Machane Lev for those aged 7-17. Services will be led by Cantor Cheryl Wunch, Kohenet Annie Matan, and Aviva Chernick.

Tickets cost $25 for adults and $10 for children. If this cost is prohibitive to your attendance, you are welcome to select the $18 ticket option. We likewise invite those who can sponsor a community member’s dinner to select to pay $36 to offset somebody else’s meal cost. If the reduced fee is still a barrier to your attendance, please reach out to emunahw@mnjcc.org for further conversation.

We are committed to ensuring our programming is accessible to anybody who wishes to attend. The MNjcc is wheelchair accessible and has gender neutral washrooms. The Shabbat service portion of the evening will have ASL interpretation, and is mask mandatory. We ask that folks who are not feeling well stay home and encourage attendees to wear masks whenever you are not eating. We kindly request that all national flags be left at home, but Pride flags are encouraged. In consideration of the difficult moment we are in, this event will have peer support available if you need to step out and talk to somebody, and there will be a lower-sensory room for the duration of the meal, to reduce overstimulation. Please email emunahw@mnjcc.org with any accessibility questions or requests and we will work together to find ways for you to join us.

This event is supported by the Kolel Legacy Fund at the Jewish Foundation.
