Pride Shabbat Guide

We want to embrace radically welcoming ourselves and others to show up as authentic individuals for Pride Shabbat. We know that when people can gather from a place of authenticity, conversations and connections feel deeper and more real. And, that brings even more joy and elevation to our Friday nights!

OneTable and JQ International bring you this Pride Shabbat guide centered on the Jewish value of V’ahavta L’reacha Kamocha: love your neighbor as yourself.

With the rise of anti-LGBTQ+ and anti-trans policies taking place in states across the United States and the horrific attacks on innocent BIPOC and Ukrainian lives, it is of urgent importance that we show love and support for our neighbors. LGBTQ+ Jews and allies in different states and countries are suffering, and our communities continue to face daily risks to physical safety and mental health.

These trying times weigh heavily on the minds and hearts of our community. We hope that you use this guide to welcome in Shabbat, be inspired, think of those who need your love and support the most, and help make a difference in this world.
