Lyrids: Last Night of Passover Under the Shooting Stars

Could we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? Could you really use a wish right now? Well on Friday, April 22nd, you won’t need to pretend! Shooting stars occur during meteor showers, and the Lyrids are one of the most stunning meteor showers of the year! Astrology has a long history/tradition in the LGBTQIA+ community, and astronomy has a long history/tradition in the Jewish community.

Come learn the basics of astrology, astronomy, and how they intersect, all set against the backdrop of a brilliant sparkling night sky! Get a guided tour of the constellations in the Northern sky, and learn a bit about celestial navigation and how it might have saved us at least 39 years of wandering. Bring weather-appropriate clothes, glasses (if you need them), a picnic blanket or folding chair, and a mental list of wishes/intentions.

RSVP on Eventbrite to attend. You will receive the meeting place location after registration.

This event is completely outdoors for COVID safety practices (and in order to see the night sky); if weather does not cooperate (e.g. clouds and/or precipitation), we will simply have to cancel, as this is a once-a-year cosmic phenomenon.


Stay tuned for new dates in this series!


Accessibility: Please email  with accessibility requests.
