J. Proud’s Pride Shabbat (12 June 2020)

Pride has been cancelled this year, but tonight J. Proud held a Pride Shabbat on Zoom. What a lovely service and while we couldn’t be together in flesh, it was still beautiful to spend time with people over Zoom.

Here are the prayers if you would care to follow along: https://www.jproudphilly.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Pride-Shabbat-2020.pdf

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    That Pride Shabbat on Zoom was a beautiful service and I can understand why you are verklempt. So am I, dear friend! I sense a big change coming in November. I feel it in my bones. The signs are everywhere. I am pleasantly surprised to see so many bloggers and YouTubers taking a stand against racism and discrimination against the LGBTQ+ communities and in favor of uniting all the people like never before. I haven’t sensed this much excitement at the grassroots level since the idealistic Sixties. I hope the momentum lasts and carries through the election and beyond.

    Have a safe and happy weekend, dear friend JM!
