Here is a snippet of our Pride Shabbat speaker, Nick Teich

Nick founded Camp Aranu'tiq of Harbor Camps in 2009 as the world's first camp for transgender and gender-variant youth, creating a place where kids would not feel alone. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, serving over 550 campers each year. In 2017 alone, the camps will give over $70,000 in financial aid and scholarships for our youth and family camps.

BHS Board of Trustees 
adopts resolution to become a
SANCTUARY SYNAGOGUE ... A message from Rabbi Lippe
Many of you may have read that at its last meeting, the BHS Board unanimously adopted a resolution declaring BHS a Sanctuary Congregation.  A press release was issued and a copy can be found here. In addition, our Task Force on Immigration and Refugee Issues has been working to identify opportunities for BHS and its members to collaborate with other faith based organizations and community groups to provide services to undocumented immigrants who may be facing detention or deportation.  One of those opportunities - our participation with Catholic Migration Services to provide legal services to families - has been previously reported to you.
The Task Force would like to ensure that BHS members who are interested in being informed of volunteer opportunities or other activities in support of immigrant and/or refugee rights receive information in a timely way.  Therefore, we are developing a roster of BHS members who would like to receive emails regarding these matters.  If you are interested in being on this email list, please respond to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  You will always have the option to remove your name from the list if you so choose at a later time. Many thanks. 
Rabbi Serge Lippe
Senior Rabbi
