Kingston Liberal Synagogue (KLS) held a special ‘Pride Seder’, attracting 30 people from all over London to a celebratory Friday night service and dinner.

A joyous occasion – led by Rabbis Dr René Pfertzel and Janet Darley – it saw KLS members joined by friends and guests from both north and south of the river.

Attendees brought a variety of rainbow-coloured food dishes to share, the colours representing the flag of the LGBTQI+ community. The room was also decked in rainbow banners, and the table was set with rainbow plates, cups and decorations.

Songs included a version of Hinei Ma Tov specially adapted to celebrate the diversity of the LGBTQI+ community.

KLS press officer Barbara Richards said: “The Shabbat evening service and dinner celebrated the fact that we live in an area that is accepting and open, but acknowledged that there is still much work to do to achieve this in other parts of the world.“
