Shir Libeynu’s 9th Annual Pride Service
For All of Us, including Allies!
With Rabbi Goldberg leading, we celebrated great Queer Jews and also focused on the world-wide persecution of LGBTQs, on Saturday, June 27, 2015.
A representative from Rainbow Railroad told us about the wonderful work that this organization does throughout the world in bringing people to safety in Canada.
We paid tribute to Elizabeth Abraham on her 50th birthday occasion with a special song performed by Chazzan Daniela, and thanked Elizabeth and her family for sponsoring the kiddish that followed.
Under the leadership of Reverend John Joseph Mastandrea, of the Metropolitan United Church, we joined other faith-based communities as part of the interfaith contingent in the Pride March on Sunday, June 28. The theme this year was “Let the Sunshine In” – and highlighted the plight and continuing persecution that many LGBTQs face around the globe. There was a focus on the work of organizations such as Rainbow Railroad.
