Have you heard a bit about the LBGTQ+ community and you have questions? What do these terms mean? Why is there a “+”? Why is it important that people who are not LGBTQ+ know about that community? Why are there different Pride flags? Join us for an educational presentation, questions, and discussion about “LGBTQ+ Concepts and Best Practices” with Sam Hipschman, a community builder and facilitator based in western Massachusetts. They currently work as Director of Community Organizing and Engagement at Lab/Shul in New York and as a mental health therapist. Sam loves exploring the ways in which their trans/nonbinary and Jewish identities support and deepen one another.

The event will be both in person at Beth El and virtual on Zoom. Registration (free) is required; click here to register. Sponsored by the Inclusion Committee and the Beth El cohort of the Keshet Shivyon Equality Program.
