PRIDE at TBT

Temple B'nai Torah has a long and proud history of LGBTQ+ activism on account of our beloved Cantor Emeritus, David Serkin-Poole, who was one of the first openly gay cantors in the United States. He served TBT for 38 years, and during that time, fought for the right to adopt his three children, Gene, Danielle and Jason, with his husband Michael.

TBT supported Cantor David every step of the way and was one of the first religious institutions to fight for Marriage Equality in the state of Washington.
