Temple Emanu-El is proud to introduce the first annual Pride Shabbat! This year we will be welcoming special guest speaker Rabbi Mike Moskowitz.

Rabbi Mike Moskowitz is the Scholar-in-Residence for Trans and Queer Jewish Studies at Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, the world’s largest LGBT synagogue. He is a deeply traditional and radically progressive advocate for trans rights and a vocal ally for LGBTQ inclusivity. Rabbi Moskowitz received three Ultra-Orthodox ordinations while learning in the Mir in Jerusalem and in Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ. He is a David Hartman Center Fellow, Wexner Field Fellow, and the author of Textual Activism, Graceful Masculinity, Seasonal Resistance and co-editor of Chaver Up!.

Pride Shabbat weekend will include Shabbat Dinner and talk with Rabbi Moskowitz, Shabbat morning services with a drash from Rabbi Moskowitz and a talk during kiddush with the rabbi as well.
