In 2012, Shir Libeynu took a table at Pride Toronto’s Community Fair during the annual Pride weekend, with its parades and other events. Our newsletter said then: “Even now, in 2012, many people are still searching for a place to belong as queer Jews. We want to make sure that the LGBTQ community and their supporters and loved ones know about our welcoming and inclusive congregation.”
In advance of our participation on Pride weekend, we held our sixth annual Pride service on Shabbat. On May 30th, the Canadian Jewish News published an article about the upcoming service, which included an interview with Aviva Goldberg about the annual service and our shul’s history.
