Gay Jews Make Shabbat Social Event All About The Appletinis, Cab Sav

Some 100 folks are expected to attend the Queer Shabbaton event later this month in San Francisco, where, J Weekly tells us, “Instead of communing in a natural setting, participants in the upcoming Queer Shabbaton will gather in San Francisco’s Mission District. Instead of singing songs around the dinner table, they’ll sip cocktails. … LGBT Jewish teachers, rabbis, scholars, lay leaders and community organizers are slated to lead an array of workshops and classes, ranging from a roundtable discussion with Nehirim executive director Michael Hopkins, to text studies and worship.” So please use a coaster when placing your martini glass down next to the Torah.

      This is silly. Everyone knows Jews don’t drink! Besides, can you imagine what issues a gay religious Jew has? OMG!

      What? Jews definitely drink, you’re thinking of Mormons.

      Randy – I don’t know who you’re thinking of, but Jews definitely drink! Hell, we even have a holiday where it’s a mitzvah – a commandment – to get drunk. . . So yeah, we like the drinking.
