Keshet is an amazing organization that I have had the privilege to work with several times. Each time, I have been witness to the transformative and healing power of the educative work it does by helping some people to feel visible and appreciated for the first time, while helping other people to struggle through their own questions and barriers to become more open-minded. I've seen educators who have gone through a Keshet training take their new learnings and understandings into their own classroom to create safer, more inclusive, more sensitive learning environments.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way that people who have gone through Keshet's trainings are able to take their learnings with them, and use them in their own lives.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

fall over, because there is so much work to do!

?

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting people to initially understand WHY Keshet's work is important to them (as soon as they sign on, they learn immediately).

Keshet has done an amazing job at fulfilling it's mission to serve the LGBTQ community in the Jewish and non-Jewish world. The growth it has seen in the past ten years is exceptional - a great return on my investment. From a speakers' bureau that went into synagogues to talk about marriage equality, to expansion of the Keshet "concept" to groups nationally, to a feature length film with worldwide distribution, Keshet makes an impact.

Without a doubt Keshet is the one organization I have been involved with which has made a critical difference in the lives of LGBTQ individuals and their families. Literally on a shoestring Idit Klein has spearheaded the growth of Keshet and has created a local,national and international organization which has changed attitudes, developed awareness and educated community leaders and made the world a much more acceptable place for LGBTQ people.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

multiple ways particularly in the schools, both secular and parochial.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want to have more money to allow time for more education.

always a pleasure to take on a task for Keshet.

Keshet has changed the Jewish community in the greater Boston area and beyond. With Jewish continuity on the minds of a great many Jews, Keshet provides the means for inclusion of LGBTQ Jews in mainstream and LGBTQ-specific settings. What greater service could one ask?! My own experience is that Keshet opened the door in my own synagogue to a much more GLBTQ-sensitive atmosphere. Keshet has also given me the opportunity to serve in a Jewish organization in which I could feel at home.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing it grow from a tiny group with some great ideas to a huge presence in the Boston area and a growing national presence.

Keshet is an amazing organization. Under the suberb leadership of Idit Klein, Keshet has gone from a one woman show operating (literally) out of Idit's apartment to become a local, regional and national force in the GLBTQ community. The Keshet staff is organized, inteeligent and committed. They do an amazing job with limited financial resources. Keshet has lead the way for GLBT Jews to be fully-welcomed as participants in Judiasm. It has made a difference in my life and that of other Jews, whether GLBT or straight.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Keshet is an innovator within the larger Jewish community. Its mission is unique and necessary on so many levels. whhere would GLBT Jews be without Keshet? Certainly not welcome at many of the less enlightened synagogues and Jewish schools....

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Probably be exhausted, because Keshet does so much with so little money. I think Idit does so many things right. I would focus on fundraising and grant writing to increase the budget. Possibly enlists some local scholars to teach and offer seminars.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I love that Keshet combines GLBT issues with a unique focus on Judaism and with a uniquely Jewish world view. The materials Keshet produces are first-rate.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Everyone at Keshet is great. They are all highly intelligent and committed people and a pleasure to work with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Hire more people; open additional offices; and do advertising. Possibly become more involved with Jewish day schools in a formal way.

Ways to make it better...

I would like to see Keshet focus more on (ahem) "older" GLBT people. Lately, much of its programming has been geared toward social activities for younger people(20-somethings). I would love to see parents and study groups.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Keshet needs more money. Period. Volunteers likely are welcome too.

One thing I'd also say is that...

There are so many areas Keshet could be involved. Some examples: parents, singles, seniors, observant and formerly observant Jews, study groups, Bar and Bat Mitzvah groups. This builds community for GLBT Jews.
