As Jewish communities, we honor Pride Month by declaring loudly and proudly that LGBTQ+ people are not only welcome in our shuls and organizations, but that we are active members of our communities, living deeply Jewish and LGBTQ+ lives. At a time when LGBTQ+ communities, especially trans and nonbinary youth, are under legislative attack, we will show up in solidarity to proclaim our support for LGBTQ+ safety, autonomy, and justice.

Sunday, June 25, Join Anshe Emet Synagogue, Keshet, and local Jewish organizations as we march in the Chicago Pride Parade 2023!

Also! Got a fun car to add pizzazz to our parade experience? We are looking for a congregant to drive or offer their fabulous convertible for the day – a vehicle will mean that we can invite our drag queen friend to join us! Reach out to Cantor Liz if you have a vehicle to offer.
