50th Anniversary Oneg #6
On Friday, June 9,was in conversation with and , discussing our siddur. As Rabbi Kleinbaum put it, “Certainly one of the great accomplishments of CBST has been the deeply rich prayer life that we as a community have had.”
Our community’s journey through prayer continues, evolving from a compilation of photocopied texts in a folder to a beautifully bound prayer book. This transformation, echoing our growth from a small gathering to a larger congregation, holds the testament of our love, struggles, tradition, and innovation.
Our prayer book is an embodiment of our values, which now features gender-neutral language, community-written prayers, and a visually appealing layout, resonating with our LGBTQ+ Jewish identity.
Be with us for our next 50th Anniversary Oneg, “Days of Celebration and Awe,” on Friday, June 28, following 6:30 p.m. ET Kabbalat Shabbat services, both in-person and online.
