Hello Temple Sinai,
I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with family and friends, or that you will be getting some well deserved R&R (my plan!).
I also forgot to mention at service last Friday night that last week was Transgender Awareness Week, and the Transgender Day of Remembrance was on Tuesday, 11/20. We know that transgender people are far more likely to be victims of hate crimes and violence, suicide and death. As Jews who know what it is like to be targeted, and as a supportive, inclusive community, we want to take a moment and remember those who have been victims of such hate, even as we commit ourselves to stand against it.
