Stars of Pride 2011
With over a million visitors from around the globe attending Pride festivities in June, we had the distinct pleasure of chatting with thousands of people while displaying the voluminous avenues into Jewish life. Here’s a look at a few of the new friends we met:
As you can see, over two-days our Outreach booth proved to be quite a hub for hanging out. A special thanks goes out to all the volunteers and LGBT Jewish professional organizations that make up the professional LGBT Jewish collective: Kol Tzedek (A Wider Bridge, Keshet, Nehirim, Congregation Sha’ar Zahav & NUJLS), the Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and Be’chol Lashon.
Each Pride Month the Jewish Community Federation is proud of the multiple opportunities to celebrate the richness and diversity of the greater San Francisco Bay Area. This year we are particularly proud that we were able to share the experience with such an incredible and valued team of volunteers and partner agencies.
Multiple Bay Area Jewish organizations and Congregations celebrate Pride each year and you can learn about them and find lots of resources on our website.
