Mardi Gras Shabbat

Every year we gather together on the Shabbat of Mardi Gras weekend for a celebratory Shabbat service followed by dinner.

During the service, special readings embracing and honouring our LGBTQI+ community are included as well as some words from the rabbi and joyous music from the Shabbat Live Band.
