A proud weekend for our Jewish community

San Francisco Pride held over "Pride weekend" June 25 to 27, 2010 throughout the Mission, Tenderloin & Castro neighborhoods is said to be "one of the last remaining pride events that can truly be called a rite of passage."

 

See all our photos from Pride weekend! 

The LGBT Alliance took advantage of the opportunity for outreach among the major festiveness at Civic Center with a LGBT Jewish community booth. In addition to introducing multiple Bay Area LGBT Jewish lay led programs like Jewish Transitions, Grief and Growing weekend, The 20th World Congress of GLBT Jews, The HIV Story Project and A Wider Bridge we also introduced hundreds of folks to how our organized Bay Area LGBT Jewish community can be relevant to their everyday lives. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the weekend:

The samples of the very popular Israeli Bamba snacks proved to be a huge hit!
