The community is invited to Bnai Keshet in Montclair at 5:45 pm. today for a short ceremony celebrating Marriage Equality, following a unanimous state Supreme Court  decision Friday allowing same-sex marriage to commence earlier this week.

As part of its ceremony, Bnai Keshet will replace its decade-old banner, "Bnai Keshet Supports Marriage Equality"  with a rainbow-colored one, "Bnai Keshet Celebrates Marriage Equality in New Jersey."

New Jersey became the first state to allow gay marriage since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Actstrike down

The celebration will include a toast with children attending  religious school and other members of the community, and a musical rendition of siman tov.  The event is open to all. 

Bnai Keshet is a Reconstructionist synagogue serving the Essex County area located at 99 S. Fullerton Avenue in Montclair.  For more information visit www.bnaikeshet.org
