Each year during Pride Month, members of Sha’ar Zahav in San Francisco come together to commemorate our emancipation from oppression, to celebrate our freedom, and to re-commit to our activism, remembering that none of us are free until all of us are free. We read from a Pride Haggadah and discuss the items on a seder plate that represent our history. This year, we will celebrate Community Pride Seder online, together with community members, LGBTQ Jewish clergy, as well as civic and interfaith leaders. Rabbi Jillian Cameron and Cantor Juval Porat will be participating!

This year, BCC counts the omer by combining the tradition of the Kabbalists (Jewish mystics) who imbued each week with a different attribute of God, and the seven letters of LGBTQIA, attributes of our community, thereby marrying tradition with the present. 
.
Counting the Omer week 7: A - Malchut/Sovereignty
.
The 7th and final week as we count up to Shavuot: the week of Malchut.
The definition of Malchut is sovereignty. It reflects the culmination the stage of coming into reality. We strive to become who we are fully, shedding doubt throughout the weeks of counting, as we get farther away from bondage and closer and closer to revelation. In this final week, we take responsibility for who we are unafraid and with pride! As a community let us strive to understand and embrace all those in our midst as we create space for everyone to be who they are. With this in mind, check out this Hey Alma article: https://www.heyalma.com/notes-from-an-asexual-jew/

This year, BCC counts the omer by combining the tradition of the Kabbalists (Jewish mystics) who imbued each week with a different attribute of God, and the seven letters of LGBTQIA, attributes of our community, thereby marrying tradition with the present. . Counting the Omer week 7: A - Malchut/Sovereignty . The 7th and final week as we count up to Shavuot: the week of Malchut. The definition of Malchut is sovereignty. It reflects the culmination the stage of coming into reality. We strive to become who we are fully, shedding doubt throughout the weeks of counting, as we get farther away from bondage and closer and closer to revelation. In this final week, we take responsibility for who we are unafraid and with pride! As a community let us strive to understand and embrace all those in our midst as we create space for everyone to be who they are. With this in mind, check out this Hey Alma article: https://www.heyalma.com/notes-from-an-asexual-jew/ . . . . #asexual #asexualjews #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #gayjews #lesbianjews #transjews #queerjews #asexuality #malchut #sfirathaomer #countingtheomer #sovereignty #jewish #jewishla #losangeles #bcc #bethchayimchadashim
