Join us for our Brooklyn Regional Shabbaton, in Park Slope Nov 16-17, 2012!
Registration is now closed. Please join us at our National Retreat in January.
If you have any questions you can email us.
The Shabbaton will bring together Orthodox and traditional LGBT Jews of all kinds from the NewYork area to an event aimed to create a community of support, learning, growth and leadership.
The shabbaton will include shiurim, zmiros, sessions on relevant to our lives as LGBT frum (or formerly frum) Jews, wonderful spirited davening, delicious healthy kosher food, and plenty of time scheduled to just hang out and get to know all the members of this growing community.
We will be gathering together in our own discreet space in local synagogues for eating, davening and workshops. Housing will be provided by local hospitality or if you prefer you may find a nearby hotel or bed and breakfast on your own.
The price is $80.
