Pride Shabbat 2024: Tribute to Jeff Avick / Liat Feller


Pride Shabbat 2024

My cousin Jeff Avick was a professional actor, so during Pride Shabbat we paid tribute to his memory in the best way possible, "Chorus Line" style:

I read excerpts from his 1993 sermon given on that very same pulpit, where he described how he was living with HIV.    I also distributed a booklet of his poetry and other writings.  Jeff died of AIDS in 1999.
