2021 Community Pride Seder

Let’s Celebrate Our Pride Together

Pride Seder is a ritual that chronicles the liberation of LGBTQ people, much like the Passover Seder, which retells the story of the liberation of the Jewish people.

Each year during Pride Month, members of Sha’ar Zahav in San Francisco come together to commemorate our emancipation from oppression, to celebrate our freedom, and to re-commit to our activism, remembering that none of us are free until all of us are free. We read from a Pride Haggadah and discuss the items on a seder plate that represent our history. This year, we will celebrate Community Pride Seder online, together with community members, LGBTQ Jewish clergy, as well as civic and interfaith leaders.

Join us on Sunday, June 13 at 5 pm PT/ 8 pm ET 

Featured Hagaddah readers and music leaders:

  • Cantor Sharon Bernstein, Sha’ar Zahav
  • Marcella White Campbell, Executive Director, Be'chol Lashon
  • Rabbi Mychal Copeland, Sha’ar Zahav
  • Tye Gregory, Executive Director, Jewish Community Relations Council
  • Idit Klein, President & CEO, Keshet
  • Gustavo Michanie, Keshet Ga'avah, the World Congress of GLBT Jewish Organizations

  • Maggid Elias Ramer, Sha’ar Zahav
  • Rabbi Diego Ariel Vovchuk, Communidad Or Israel, Seminario Rabínico Latinoamericano
  • State Senator Scott Weiner, California, District 11

This virtual event is led by Sha’ar Zahav, with support from the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund, the Jewish Community Relations Council, Keshet, and Keshet Ga'avah: The World Congress of GLBT Jews.


You can print the Pride Haggadah, or you can follow along with the text on the screen during the Seder. 

We are excited to offer you the Pride Seder Welcome Kit, produced by Keshet. It explains the terms and symbols we use in the Pride Seder, and also has links to other resources for the LGBTQ Jewish community and definitions of some LGBTQ terminology.

Just like our Passover Seder, Pride Seder has its own set of symbols. If you have a printer, we encourage you to print and cut out the Pride Seder symbols (in color or in black & white).
