Pride Shabbat with Yelena Goltsman

Start Date: Friday, June 15, 2018 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The entire community is invited to join us for Erev Shabbat Services on Friday, June 15th at 7:30 PM at Scarsdale Synagogue. In addition to the joy of welcoming Shabbat together, we’ll have the opportunity to celebrate diversity and inclusion in our community as we honor Pride Shabbat. And we will be honored to hear from Yelena Goltsman.

Yelena is a Kiev-born human rights and LGBTQ activist. She is the founder and co-president of RUSA LGBT, an organization that was formed in 2008 to establish a social network for the Russian-speaking LGBTQ community in the New York area and beyond. Yelena is a long-time member of Congregation Beit Simchat Torah and is an outstanding lay contributor to the life of the synagogue, organizing a wide range of programming and learning opportunities. Her concern for Russian- speaking LGBTQ refugees and asylum seekers and those still oppressed in the former Soviet Union has made the issue a central component in CBST's social justice work.
