NY Attorney General Letitia James at CBST Pride Shabbat

“Love is a feeling that demands to be unrestrained. How could anyone ever think otherwise?”—NY Attorney General Letitia James at CBST Pride Shabbat

Attorney General James praised CBST’s 50-year history as a home for love and compassion. And she urged us to continue overcoming in the face of challenges for LGBTQ people.

“The moment that allyship turns into apathy,” she said, “is the moment that we let hate win.”

We were so grateful for Attorney General James’s presence and wise words at our 50th Anniversary Pride Shabbat services. What an honor to have her support and allyship.
