Celebrate Madison Pride Weekend with TBE!

Urgency of Now

Pride Shabbat (Friday, August 17): Kick off the weekend in a fun and meaningful way at our Pride Shabbat. Join us at 6:45 pm for a light nosh of rainbow-inspired treats and poster making for the pride parade. Our special Midor Lador Service (honoring members of our LGBTQ+ community in prayer and song) begins at 7:30 pm.

Madison Outreach Pride Parade (Sunday, August 19): Join TBE as we march alongside our fellow Madison Jewish congregations to celebrate LGBTQ+ pride, demonstrating our commitment to justice and equality for all members of our community! Everyone is invited to participate (LGBTQ+ and Allies), and you don’t need to be a TBE member to march with us.

Meet between 12:00 and 12:30 pm by the Colectivo Coffee at 583 State St. Look for the large, lime-green Temple Beth El banner. The parade starts toward the Capitol at 1:00 pm, with a big rally and dance party on the square at 2:00 pm. In addition to the signs made at Pride Shabbat, we will have lots of brightly colored accessories and flags to show our ruach (spirit)!

The rally features a keynote address by author and transgender rights activist Sara McBride. For more details about the parade and rally, visit outreachprideparade.org.
