Pour Your Heart Out: A Wine Tasting and Storytelling Event

Hosted by

Many a comparison can be drawn between winemaking and the Jewish LGBTQ+ experience, and we're not just saying that because we want to throw a wine tasting event. Think about it...Just as there are countless varietals of wine, each with its own flavor profile and history, the LGBTQ+ community is made up of diverse identities and personal stories. Then there's the concept of terroir —how a wine's flavor is influenced by its environment—sound familiar? And lest we forget that grapes must often withstand adverse conditions to produce wine, just like the LGBTQ+ community's resilience and adaptivity. Ok, now that we've established that a wine tasting is the perfect way to dive into talking about the Jewish LGBTQ+ experience, we would like to formally invite you to a wine tasting and storytelling event featuring four fabulous wines and four equally fabulous community members who will share their stories. Heavy apps will be served, non-alcoholic beverages will be available and there will be plenty of time to socialize.

This event is being offered at no cost. Please consider making a donation to Federation's 2024 Annual Campaign if you have not done so this year. You can donate here.

Please RSVP no later than May 16.
