LGBTQ+ Affinity Group Event Registration

LGBTQ+ Affinity Group: Online Torah Study & Schmooze Event Registration

Wednesday, June 1, 2022, 8:00 – 9:30pm, via Zoom
Adas Israel’s new LGBTQ+ affinity group will be having its first ever Online Torah Study & Schmooze on Zoom Wednesday June 1 from 8:00pm-9:30pm.
The session will be led by Rabbi Jenna Stein Turow from the Den Collective. As we will be in the last week of counting the Omer, the session will look at what queer revelations are in store for us as we prepare for Shavuot. 
All ages welcome. Wherever you are on your path of Jewish learning, you are welcome. We do ask that allies respect that the affinity space is for LGBTQIA+ identifying or questioning people and their immediate families/partners only.

We also want to remind the Adas community about the Jayme Schlenker Memorial Fund, which will provide critical resources for transgender youth in crisis as well as support for their family and friends. Initially this will include time-limited emergency counseling with a licensed therapist, a therapist-led support group for transgender youth at Adas, and a resource shelf in the library and posting of information around the synagogue about organizations that help transgender youth. We anticipate this work launching later this year. 

Adas Israel has generously provided some seed money for the fund and many members of the community have donated, but more is needed to ensure that the vital work of the fund can continue long-term. Please click here to donate. If you have any questions, please contact Marilyn Cooper at
