LAB/SHUL, CBST and JQY invite you to join us in a Memorial and Solidarity Gathering in response to the senseless hatred in Israel last week. We gather one week after the Jerusalem Pride Parade, in which six people were stabbed and one of them, teenager Shira Banki, was murdered at the hands of a Jewish religious extremist. We gather in grief, in outrage, and in hope, raising our Jewish and LGBTQ’s voices together against violence, racism and homophobia in Israel. Together we will create the peace we want to see in the world.
“The accusation of abomination, the refusal by many to even have a public conversation about our lives, loves, shame and pride – all of this is part of the problem. And it’s time for a solution. Our lives and loves are sacred. We were all made in the Divine image. Diversity is holy too.”
-Amichai, from his recent blog on the Jerusalem Pride stabbing
