NOTE: As the parade start time has been moved up to 11:00 am: We’re going to meet in the synagogue at 9:00 am, so we can get organized and all leave together at 9:30 am to get to our assembly point at 10:00 am.

It’s that
time again – time to show our pride and our inclusiveness to the people of
Victoria! In these troubled times, it’s good to have an opportunity to
celebrate and let people know there is a place where everyone is welcome.

Congregation
Emanu-El and its friends who support LGBTQ inclusion, LGBTQ congregants, allies
and friends are all welcome to join in the parade that starts on Sunday, July 9
at 12 noon.

We’re going
to meet in the synagogue at 10:30 am so we can get organized and all leave together
at 11:00 am to get to our assembly point. 

We’ll join
in our parade ‘krewe’ and celebrate with song, dance and lots of fun to show
our pride and support, and as an inclusive Jewish congregation that embraces the
LGBTQ community and friends. 

Again this
year we hope to have the The Klezbians musical group join us to get
people up off their feet and dancing to the incredible music. Last year The
Klezbians
made ours one of the best entries in the parade, so watch for a newsletter
update confirming their participation.

If you need
more information, feel free to contact Heshi Olson or Aaron Severs or the
Congregation Emanu-El office at 250-382-0615 (Tuesday through Thursday) 9:30

Tell all
your friends to come out and join us for another wonderful day in sunny
Victoria.
