Join us for a Loving Day Kabbalat Shabbat service celebrating diverse Jewish couples and families.
Ahead of Loving Day, join us for a Kabbalat Shabbat service celebrating all kinds of racially and ethnically diverse Jewish couples and families! Jewish diversity manifests across multiple generations, in self-described religious, secular, and interfaith families, and in every geographic corner of the Jewish community.
Only 50 years ago, the landmark Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia legalized interracial marriage throughout the United States. Mildred and Richard Loving demanded and won the right to live as an ordinary, everyday, loving couple, just like the families we will celebrate for this special Shabbat. This upcoming celebration will bring together their stories while connecting us with the tunes and prayers of thousands of years of tradition.
Join Be’chol Lashon and 18Doors together with Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, PJ Library, Free Synagogue of Flushing, Honeymoon Israel, and Ketubah.com for this unique celebration of our community’s diversity.
