Celebrating Pride Month

Come see how we are celebrating pride month at Temple Emanu-El! 

Mark your calendars for two events celebrating LGBTQ and how our world and community has progressed.  Temple Emanu-El and the Reform Movement have been outspoken for many years, welcoming everyone, regardless of their sexual preference.

Mark Friedman and Josh Scheinert were the first gay couple to be married by a Conservative rabbi in Canada. They will talk about their experiences living in Canada and being parents to a beautiful little son, Asher Lev.

Several years ago, Josh spent time in Africa and has written a book called, The Order of Nature, and will talk about not only his experience about being gay but, also, about what challenges gay people have living in Africa. This book is available on Amazon.com
