Pride at the J
Celebrating the Twin Cities LGBTQ+ Jewish Community
Join us for this community-wide art exhibition featuring photographs showcasing the wonderful diversity of the Twin Cities Jewish community. The gallery will be open from 2–5 pm on June 2 to enjoy the art exhibition. During story hour from 3–4 pm, we’ll read PJ Library books, work on a variety of pride-related crafts, and enjoy refreshments. Drag Story Hour is for kids, adults, and families of all ages.
Additionally, J-Pride is working on a community chuppah to be featured on stage for the Pride Shabbat morning service on June 22, and carried in the parade. We need your help to make it a beautiful and communal chuppah, and there will be open time to add your own decoration to this beautiful ritual object.

Splitting the Light: Welcoming Nature Back to Our Lives
Featuring work by Lilli Sprintz
Over the course of her life, Lilli has lived in many different environments exposing her to the vastness of nature that would inevitably inspire her work and love of nature. From the landscapes of Philadelphia to the red cardinals of Cincinnati and most recently to the lakes and blue skies of Minnesota – which is considered home for Sprintz.
The Hebrew letters in Lilli’s work are used as symbols, which communicate messages; some are prayers but all of this is about how much Sprintz loves nature and wants to protect it.
