The official position of Sojourn is to stand for Jews- all Jews. There appears to have been some misunderstandings and we wish to clarify them. To be clear, SOJOURN is not banning anything at Pride. We advocate and defend the rights of Jews to be on the continuum of sexual and gender diversity. We advocate and defend the rights of Jews to be on the continuum of beliefs about Israel and about American Jewry, gender diverse individuals and allies, Jews and non-Jews. We defend your right to be you. We celebrate what unites us, not what divides us. Please join us in celebrating the Jewish community at pride. Dare to be you with SOJOURN.

The Jewish Community Booth is P(urple) #45 in Piedmont Park all weekend, October 13-14! See map below.
