Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST) is hosting a vigil for trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming individuals to light candles, remember those we’ve lost this past year, and honor their memories with song. This vigil will take place both in person at CBST in Midtown Manhattan and online, 5:00-6:00 pm ET / 2:00-3:00 pm PT

A Shabbat service, also in-person and online, will follow at 6:30 pm ET / 3:30 pm PT and is open to all who wish to attend.

To attend the vigil in person, please register and submit proof of vaccination here. To attend online, sign up for the Emet mailing list here or email [email protected]; the Zoom link will be sent the morning of Friday, November 19.
