Happy Shavuot!!

Happy Erev Shavuot from our Fatshion Bugg and the rest of us!

We are going to do errands – pretty fun ones, though – and then stay home. But you know it’s like Shavuot most every night at our house. And if we were in Boston we’d probably be teaching at the Brookline Area Community Tikkun Leil Shavuot 5774. And here in the DMV there’s Bet Mishpachah's dairy potluck and special service “What does revelation mean? Mysticism, Feminism, Poetry and Beyond”, and the DC JCC's GLOE - GLBT Outreach & Engagement, and maybe more.

We are planning on attending the National Erev Pride Shabbat this Friday.

Philly Trans Health Conference - Spirituality Room

There will be a Spirituality Room at the Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference next week, and proposals are still being sought!

"Spiritual events sought for PTHC

Dear friend,

I hope you are getting excited for this year's Philly Trans Health Conference!

The Spirituality Working Group is thrilled to announce that this year, for the first time, there will be a spirituality-designated room at the conference. Every year there are a number of special events such as worship, meditation, yoga, and more; this year all such events can be housed in the same room and we'll have much more flexibility in terms of timing.

We need your help! We are still seeking and scheduling events in this room. Do you have something to offer?

Ideas for events:
  • Sacred rituals 
  • Sharing/teaching spiritual practices 
  • Worship services or circles
  • Prayer and/or meditation 
  • Opportunities for pastoral care 
  • Ceremonies 
  • Other creative ideas 
Consider sharing your gifts and your spiritual practices with the Philly Trans Health community. If you know others who might have something to offer, please forward this invitation to them. We are looking to create a diverse and varied slate of spiritual opportunities.

Please email me at to express your interest and share your proposals!
