Am Tikva, Boston's LGBT Synagogue 6:00 to 8:00 pm, Thursday, November 19, 2015
Join THP board member Marvin Kabakoff to discuss the history of Am Tikva, Boston's LGBT synagogue, which held its first services in 1977. We'll cover the founding of the World Congress of Gay and Lesbian Jewish Organizations, and show how the congregation has been affected by societal events, by changes in the LGBT community, and by the increasing degree of acceptance of LGBT Jews by mainstream synagogues.
THE 2015 HISTORYMAKER AWARDS were a smashing success! Many thanks to all who attended, especially our fabulous honorees Christine Hurley, Abe Rybeck, and Sandi Hammond and The Butterfly Music Transgender Chorus.
