A Jewish Conversation for Pride Month
Tuesday, June 30, @ 12:30 p.m. ET

Fifty years after the first Pride march, this year's celebration is different. Social-distancing has canceled many parades, and celebrations are mainly online. The Supreme Court just ruled that LGBTQ people are protected from employment discrimination. And the issue of inclusion has perhaps never been a higher priority in Jewish circles. On June's last day, Jodi Rudoren, the Forward's Editor-in-Chief, will moderate a conversation with key thought leaders.
