Ahava – LGBTQ Community

Ahava

The Jewish LGBTQ & friends group at U-M, AHAVA (love in Hebrew), provides a relaxed atmosphere where people from diverse Jewish backgrounds can feel comfortable. We often partner with the Spectrum Center, the office of LGBT Affairs at U-M. We also sponsor guest speakers to lead discussions on topics relevant to our lives. Past speakers have included Rabbi Steven Greenberg and Danny Savitch, Director of Jerusalem’s Open House. We also hold the widely acclaimed Annual Flaming Menorah Hanukkah Party each year.
