At WLS, we are proud of our diverse community and our strong record of championing equality and access for all, including the LGBTQ+ community and others.

  • LGBTQ+

Progressive Judaism has long been a home for LGBTQ+ Jews. At WLS, we are proud of our diverse community and our strong record of championing equality. Our annual calendar of events includes a Pride Shabbat, a World AIDS Day service and fundraiser for AIDS charities, and various less formal LGBTQ+ social events. At any service, event or class there will be other LGBTQ+ members, including amongst the families and staff at our Religion School.

We don’t just want to be LGBTQ+ welcoming, we strive to be fully inclusive throughout every section of communal life. All of our rabbis are known for officiating at LGBTQ+ weddings and several of them are public proponents of LGBTQ+ inclusion.

If you are new to WLS and would like to be connected with other LGBTQ+members, please get in touch with Rabbi David
