Congregation Beth Sholom
Congregation Beth Sholom has been a safe place for queer people since it started in 1980. We have a large LGBTQ community within our community. Our view is based off the Genesis passage that all people are made in the image God. Thus each person is a unique reflection of God, which is why we honor and celebrate diversity.
