Keshet is leading the way in pushing the Jewish community to be more LGBTQ inclusive. From educational programming to community building, Keshet serves most of the Jewish community. As a Keshet volunteer and queer-identified Jew, I am grateful for the opportunity to join them in this hard and rewarding work.

Keshet does amazing work in providing resources and training for enabling synagogues and community groups to be welcoming and supportive for LGBT participants. I have found Keshet to be a warm and welcoming community in Boston and a great way to meet other LGBT Jews. I have had the opportunity to participate in Shabbat celebrations and in learning opportunities and have enjoyed attending and volunteering at the Cabaret fundraiser for several years. The Keshet staff and volunteers are fantastic and truly dedicated to the organization.

I loved Keshet when I was living in Boston because it let me participate in and then contribute to Jewish LGBT events. I wish it was national so that it could have reached me when I lived in Minneapolis and now that I am in Washington D.C. It has been wonderful to see it expand from Boston-only to Denver and now San Fran too! I hope to see Keshet continue to expandi the types of services it offers from social to advocacy to supportive, etc as it has been doing over the past many years.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make it national.

Keshet is an amazing unique organization that makes me feel so welcome as a Jewish lesbian. I think the fact that my potential move to DC is being put off because I don't want to leave Keshet, is a testament to how strongly I feel about their mission, programming, and presence.

The Great!

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

the multiple amazing programs they put on each month.

Ways to make it better...

More feedback...

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

growing to become part of the organization rather than just a participant.

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

outgoing, friendly, and inclusive.

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

develop more satellite chapters in other progressive cities and establish more of a national presence than it already hass.

Ways to make it better...

I were around more during the weekends to participate in more activities.

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

?

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

Keshet is a wonderful organization whose membership and staff will hopefully grow throughout the years.

I worked as a volunteer first and then for a small time as an intern when Keshet was starting to grow back in 2003. I think the vision of the organization with the community organizing tools applied, has brought to Boston, the US and also to the international Jewish community an example on how things can change for good. In Argentina and Latin America we had applied Keshet tools and programs succesfully and we have always had the support of their staff.

The Great!

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

positive reactions from local constituency in Argentina and Latin America

Keshet is a remarkable and essential resource to the Jewish community - as a straight allie who has supported other GLBT organizations for years, it's about time we got with the program! The leadership and staff of Keshet bring innovation and creativity to their work,along with an inclusive and joyous approach. In the past several years they have succeeded in developing many of the necessary tools for building awareness, strengthening education, and promoting action on GLBT issues in our community.

The Great!

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

educating members of the Jewish community through presentations at large gatherings and more intimate events for funders.

Ways to make it better...

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

build strong alliances with Jewish and non-Jewish activists working on GLBT issues unaware of the existence of Keshet.

More feedback...

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

meeting their executive director and founder, appreciating their work product, celebrating their creativity in producing special events and promoting new forms of engagement.

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

outstanding!

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

insure that all congregations, Jewish community centers, and educational and cultural institions had the necessary budget, staff, and programs to support GLBT members of our community.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to integrate their work into my own within the mainstream Jewish community. Looking forward to the next best opportunity.

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

the current funding climate.

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

I have been particularly moved at how this organization has gone about its work, with dignity and humility in the face of ignorance and years of neglect from a human rights and social justice perspective.

I was trained as a facilitator by keshet as part of their Hebrew school educational programs. I know that through that program and others like it keshet is generating important converstion within the Jewish community around issues of inclusion, inclusion of glbt folks, and inclusion of others. Keshet is a vital force in Boston and nationally.

The Great!

The seat glbt folks have at the perverbial Jewish community table.
