Havdalah Hangout - Day at the Beach
We'll be spending the day at queer friendly Jacob Riis Park in Far Rockaways, Queens. Despite the name, it's not that far! Join us for an afternoon of fun in the sun, followed by a short but intimate Havdalah service on the sand and possibly dinner afterward. Official RSVP here:

    What we're about

    Have you been wandering in the desert in search of like-minded LGBTQ Jews? We feel your struggle.

    Aleinu is the 20s/30s group within Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST) in New York City. Connect with us. Hang with us. Eat with us. Join us for a Shabbat dinner after services - we always have a great time.

    Side note: Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST) is a vibrant spiritual community and a progressive voice within ‎Judaism. Founded in 1973, CBST attracts and welcomes gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender, ‎queer and straight individuals and families who share common values.

    Want to come to a service? Check out our brand-new building at 130 West 30th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues). Services usually start at 6:30 PM, but feel free to check the calendar on CBST's site (
