Kulanu = "All of Us"  

Perhaps you have seen rainbow stickers and LGBTQ posters newly hung in the synagogue or noticed the rainbow flag icon above. Kulanu, meaning “all of us,” is a newly formed group at CSR, whose purpose is to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for the Jewish LGBTQ community. We are guided by the principle that the entire synagogue family is enriched by inclusivity.

With this in mind, we are encouraging everyone to attend what promises to be an extraordinary lecture given by Rabbi Steve Greenberg, an openly gay Orthodox rabbi, entitled “Homosexuality and Halakah (Jewish Law)” on Sunday, April 27 at 12:30 pm at Community Synagogue of Rye and in partnership with Congregation KTI. Community Synagogue of Rye’s Men’s Club is kindly providing lunch. Registration is encouraged, but not required, and can be completed here.

If you are interested in joining the Kulanu committee, please email Pat Rind at prind@optonline.net. For more information about the "Weekend of Learning" with Rabbi Greenberg, click here.
