We celebrated at a maariv (evening) service and ended with a Havdallah (end of Shabbat) ceremony. Afterwards, everyone joined us for a desserts reception down the hall in Room 318, where we all shmoozed and socialized together. Friends, bubbes and zaidyes, and all the rest of your mishpoocha were there!
Our 2017 service included a talk by and discussion with a young student and member of her Jewish day school’s gay/straight alliance, presenting the situation there for LGBTQ students. All were welcome, including straight allies!
