Seeking LA temple for Holy Days [04 Sep 2006|02:46pm]

Hey all,
Does anyone know of a temple/synagogue in the LA area that does not charge (or charges very little) to attend High Holy Days Services? Would like for my wife & I to go to services, but we're unaffiliated, & living on 1 income presently while I finish school.

Liberal/interfaith/queer friendly would be a bonus.

Thanks! :)

Jewish issues vs Queer issues [19 Apr 2006|05:11pm]

Does anyone here feel the same way I do, that they identify far more with Jewish social and political issues than queer ones, and do you feel at times that these issues conflict with each other?

For example, I am very mainstream, politically moderate, and supportive of Israel and I find that in my area, the queer scene is very "alternative culture", and very left wing. There are times I feel conflicts in being queer and being Jewish - not because of religion, but because of politics and culture.

Greetings :) [17 Apr 2006|12:43pm]

I found this community from one of my LJ friends' profiles.

I'm 32. I'm Jewish, Reform, raised secular, and generally clueless about Judaism but still learning. I came from an interfaith family - father is of Episcopalian background.

I'm a non-traditional-age pre-med student. I'm a bookseller, and soon to be an EMT-Basic. I also live in the Burbs... East Contra Costa County, California. Because of where I live, my dominant way of meeting like minds is the internet. I've also decided that I intend to share my life with a Jewish woman.

Anyway, um... I really can't think of anything else to say. So I'll just wave hi :)

Pesach music [03 Mar 2006|12:42am]

[ mood | awake ]

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to make my relatives a CD of songs from the Seder so that they are familiar with the tunes by the time Pesach roles around.

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations of especially good tunes, CDs etc (I have Debbie Friedman and a few others) I would also love an English version of the 4 Questions as the youngest of my cousins doesn't know any Hebrew?

If anyone would be prepared to upload any songs for me I would be extremely grateful!! Even names of artists and tracks helps. I'll happily share the finished CD with the group if people are interested.

Btw has anyone heard the Ten Plagues by David and the High Spirits? It sounds way too cheery...almost like a Chanukah song even as it's listing off the plagues.

I also heard that there is a 'make your own Haggadah' website. Does anyone have any experience of this or have any particular Haggadah references or websites they recommend?

Thank you!!

Apologies for X posting

[ mood | trepidatious ]

Hi. I'm a 33 yr old femmy lesbian. I live in Denver, CO with my four kids and sweet butch girlfriend. I am a currently unemployed cantorial soloist and my kids are unschoolers so I'm kept very busy. My girlfriend is in the process of converting with the local Recon rabbi and I am having a fight with God right now, struggling to decide what level of observance suits me these days.

I've just given in to the massive pressure to get online. We didn't even have a computer until very recently. So, I'm looking forward to making friends but be patient with me, I'm learning as I go.

How do you know you're at a Chasidic wedding?
When the mother of the bride is pregnant.

How do you know you're at a Conservative wedding?
When the bride is pregnant.

How do you know you're at a Reform wedding?
When the Rabbi is pregnant.

How do you know you're at a Reconstructionist wedding?
Both brides are pregnant. ;-)

Jerusalem gay pride parade halted after 3 participants stabbed by religious Jewish man

By Jonathan Lis and Amiram Barkat, Haaretz Correspondents

Jerusalem's gay pride parade was temporarily halted on Thursday evening after a religious Jewish man stabbed three participants.

The assilant ran into the crowd, stabbed one man, moved on to a young woman stabbing her hand, and then lightly wounded a third man. Police arrested the assailant and 13 other religious protesters were arrested after disrupting the order.

Some 200 religious protesters faced 2,000 participants, according to police estimates.

The parade left off from the city center offices of the gay rights group that organized it, Open House, ended several hours later.

A court on Sunday ordered the Jerusalem municipality to drop its ban on the fourth annual gay pride parade in the city, accepting a petition by Open House, Jerusalem's gay and lesbian community center.

Jerusalem District Court Judge Moussia Arad, who is vice president of the court for administrative affairs, also ordered the municipality and Mayor Uri Lupolianski to pay court costs of NIS 30,000 each.

The judge ruled that City Hall cannot discriminate against a particular public because some of its members object to that public's opinions or sexual orientation.

The director of Open House, Hagai Elad, said the court verdict is a victory for freedom of expression and the principle of equality. He promised that the fourth annual gay pride parade in Jerusalem would take place as planned and will follow the same format as last year's.

The event had the approval of the police.

Chairman of the Jerusalem Meretz branch, Saar Netanel, said he "felt tremendous satisfaction at the fact that Lupolianski will have to pay NIS 30,000 out of his own pocket."

Netanel added that the verdict is a victory not only for the gay and lesbian community but for whoever wants an open and pluralistic Jerusalem.
