Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Mardi Gras, Emanuel Synagogue in association with Dayenu – Sydney’s Jewish LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Group is pleased to present the annual Mardi Gras Shabbat Service, followed by a communal dinner.

Emanuel Synagogue takes pride in its long history of support for the LGBT+ community, including offering same-sex marriage ceremonies and a raft of political initiatives in support of LGBT+ issues.

Dayenu’s aim is to provide a place where LGBT+ folk can feel at home with both their religious and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and diverse-gendered identities. The organisation welcomes people from other faith/spiritual traditions as well as anyone who may be interested to experience this aspect of Jewish culture.

The service is open to everyone. Bookings are required for the kosher-catered dinner – last year sold out so don’t wait! (BYO wine)

    No, Eleonora, I assure you Scripture has not been changed. The progressives just ignore or censor the bits they don’t like.

  2. Eleonora Mostert says:

    Oops, scripture has been changed??? Homosexual behavior is no longer an abomination in the eyes of God!
