Chicago, Illinois

Price: Suggested donation of $36 to support The Trevor Project

RSVP: Temple Sholom of Chicago

Join us for a Havdalah ritual (it’s kosher to do Havdalah up until Tuesday night!) to stand up against hate towards our transgender and non-binary siblings.

Co-sponsored by Anshe Emet and Mishkan Chicago, together we will:
-Create a unique and meaningful Havdalah ritual, incorporating poetry and storytelling
-Learn from representatives from Keshet about current anti-LGBTQ+ legislative attacks and strategies to combat them
-Build relationships, make new connections, and hold space for each other to be seen
-Enjoy delicious food and drink
-Take pride in the fact that our Jewish values empower us to take action!

This special night is one that you won’t want to miss. Our hope is that by coming together as one community, we will build solidarity between those most affected by the numerous amount of anti-trans and anti-queer legislative attacks across the country, and all those who are allies of the LGBTQ+ community.
