CTC was a PROUD to Co-Sponsor Pride Shabbat 2015.

In 2015 Pride Shabbat was held at Temple De Hirsch Sinai on Seattle's Capital Hill. Open to the entire Jewish community, we celebrated Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Jews. With friends, allies, and families by our side. Pride Shabbat is an opportunity for our community to come together and share joyous and meaningful prayer in an inclusive environment that welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning Jews and their friends and families. Last year more than 200 participants joined us for the Pride Shabbat service followed by an oneg Shabbat. A week later we celebrated the Supreme court decision that made marriage equity the law of the land!!!

Pride Shabbat is an opportunity provides a way for our community to come together and share joyous and meaningful prayer in an inclusive environment that welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning Jews, their friends and families. Last year there was fabulous turn out more of than 300 participants at the Pride Shabbat service. Pride Shabbat has the endorsement of the Jewish Federatin of Greater Seattle and other groups including Congregation Tikvah Chadashah and Koleinu. Its attendance grew when it was a project of Bashert: the LGBT initiative of the Jewish Federation. It has been a celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and questioning Jews, friends, allies and families. 2015 is the seventh year that Pride Shabbat has been endorsed by the full membership of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. We've come a long way! It is inspiring to pray for liberation and freedom together.
Pride Shabbat 2008 marked a step forward in the embracing of all GLBTQ Jews of our community. In the past rejection by congregations and exclusion from full participation in Jewish life were common and were part of the founding of CTC. Since 2008 Pride Shabbat has demonstrated that the majority of congrations today in our community are welcoming and inclusive.
