CBST’s 50th Anniversary Pride Shabbat

We’re still basking in the joy, spiritual fullness, and pride we felt at our 50th Anniversary Pride Shabbat services on Friday, June 23. What an amazing gift to be in community together and graced with the presence and wise words of New York Attorney General Letitia James, and our special guest, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who was in conversation with Senior Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum during services.

“Over the Rainbow”

CBST’s 50th Anniversary Pride Shabbat service was a spectacular celebration. Hear the iconic piece “Over the Rainbow,” popularized by the legendary Judy Garland in “The Wizard of Oz,” sung by the magnificent CBST Community Chorus » “Over the Rainbow,” has become a beloved anthem for the LGBTQ+ community. In this rich choral arrangement, we hear the call for an era of peace and full acceptance “where troubles melt like lemon drops.”
