Shalom Chevre,
We have revived a fundamental Minyan tradition: a MONTHLY MINYAN SHARING!
Our community is improved by knowing one another better. Weaving a web of sharing, each of us will have the opportunity to tell something that we feel is important for the community to know about us. Bring your joys, your concerns, your needs, your abundance, your stories, and let’s enrich ourselves and community together.
Marty Potrop will facilitate.

Kick off Pride month with this participatory ritual filled with song and dance. Past attendees, including non-Jews and straight-identified folks said it moved and delighted them. WC accessible, Fragrance Free

Based on the Ashkenazi custom of reading Song of Songs on Passover, we gather together in community to rejoice and celebrate queer sacred sexuality for we know that all acts of love and pleasure are our rituals, are holy, and celebrate the Goddess.
Rabbi Akiva – “While all of the sacred writings are holy, the Song of Songs is the holy of holies!” (Mishnah, Yadayim 3:5).
Co-presented by JeWitch Collective and Aquarian Minyan with Chochmat HaLev, Sha’ar Zahav, Torah of Awakening and other community groups co-sponsoring. Contact to find out about co-sponsoring or with any concerns or questions.
