My synagogue, Congregation Leyv Ha-Ir ( http://www.leyvhair.org/ ) is affiliated with J.Proud, a consortium of the Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia (https://www.jfcsphilly.org/ ) to educate Jewish organizations and institutions on including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Jewish into their organizations. J.Proud hosts a series of programs involving LGBT Jews, including a Passover Haggadah, marching in the pride parade in June, and a reading list dealing with the intersectionality of being Jewish and Gay, as well as making congregations and schools more welcoming to LGBT Jews, and understanding such Gay issues as same-sex parenting, gender identity, and family acceptance.
