4) For our Queer Jewish friends there is the annual Pride Shabbat at Temple Beth Am, 2632 NE 80th, which is North Seattle in the Ravenna ‘hood.
Temple Beth Am is delighted to host this year’s city-wide Pride Shabbat! Open to the entire community, Pride Shabbat is a celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Jews, with their friends, allies, and families.
After the service, everyone is invited to attend a free kosher, Va’ad-approved, Shabbat dinner, sponsored by TBA and Jewish community partners. An ASL interpreter will be available for the evening.
That’s a lot to do…especially if you’re a 20 year old African-American Jewish Lesbian with a great fake I.D.
(Please don’t use Fake I.D.s….)
