As LGBTQ Jews, we remember the painful history of exclusion and marginalization that has
long cast a shadow over the pride we take in our faith. This beautifully written, painstakingly
edited book is an important and joyful contribution towards a fully inclusive Judaism, one
which actively celebrates our identities and recognizes that all of us are created b'tzelem Elohim,
in God's image.
-RABBI SHARON KLEINBAUM, Senior Rabbi, Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, New York, NY

Rabbi Denise Eger, along with this volume's many contributors, has expanded our tradition
and elevated the entire Jewish community with her extraordinary collection of prayers and
blessings consecrating holy moments in the lives of our LGBTQ family. I welcome Mishkan
Ga'avah: Where Pride Dwells
into the sacred Jewish canon, confident that every lover of an
inclusive Jewish life will turn to this inspiring work again and again.
-RABBI RICK JACOBS, President, Union for Reform Judaism

As LGBTQ+ peoples reclaim their spiritual heritage, rejecting the lie that God does not love
us, we are writing our own stories, prayers, and liturgies. These offerings are used extensively
in the reframing of the religious language of inclusion. Rabbi Denise Eger offers another
layer of insightful and provocative liturgies that draw on her vast experience of ministry to
the LGBTQ+ community over many years, and I commend her leadership and contribution
in her latest work, Mishkan Ga'avah: Where Pride Dwells.
