Our Temple team rocked out during the Pride Parade yesterday and here are the awesome photos to prove it! We are so honored to be the only synagogue at this year’s Pride Parade. What a great time everyone had while supporting the LGBT community.
The Temple has always promoted the two central ideals in Jewish teachings “Love thy neighbor” and “all people are created in God’s image.” Throughout The Temple’s 175 year history Rabbis and lay leaders have been active in civil rights and in advocating for fair treatment of all people including LGBTQ individuals.
The Temple rabbis are active with the Fairness Campaign and have conducted same sex marriage rites since 1996 – including the first same sex marriage in the state of Israel. The Temple is a welcoming congregation and celebrates the contributions of all of its members. The Temple rabbis hope that Equality Shabbat will help to promote acceptance for and celebration of LGBTQ individuals in Louisville and throughout the region.
