Jews March for Pride

This Sunday is the Gay Pride Parade.

Jews from around the bay area are all getting together to march as one Jewish community. On both sides of the bay the Jewish Federations are organizing to help people carpool, get the right BART connections and get to the Jewish location in the parade. Lots of synagogues are organizing their members. My congregation has made a T-shirt for the parade and my friend, Susan, is sending out emails to get people organized. They want you to sign up if you’re coming. I plan to go early and have breakfast with the mass of Jews.

If you are interested you can find information at both Federation websites:

I plan to go for the breakfast in SF nice and early to beat the crowds. Plus I’ll get to visit with everyone – as you know I love to see friends! I hope to see you there.
