Being someone who teters between Jewish and LGBT none profits, its really nice seeing something that works for both. Its very empowering to know they work for so many demographics like teachers, families, professionals, and youth. I cannot wait to see how this none profit expands. I really love their resources. The staff has gone out of there way to support me.

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

I would make it more visible amongst the major Jewish none profits.

Keshet does great works for the GLBTQ community and does wonders for advocacy among the Jewish community. I believe with things like GLBTQ outreach, it needs to be done at a more personal, intimate level, and I think working through the Jewish community is exactly the approach that's needed. They do so many things with so little resources it's absolutely amazing.

In my 35 years as a social worker and member of progressive oranizations, I have never been as impressed with any organization as I have with Keshet. Initially I became involved with Keshet to meet the " Jewish woman of my dreams." "I soon learned Keshet's social events were a small part of their work. Each year I am amazed how much Keshet continues to explode into the larger community. IT IS AS IF A GRAIN OF SAND HAS BECOME A BEACH. Idit Klein is a brilliant leader who is able to envision how to eduate the broader Jewish community about GBLT issues in a way that GBLT Jewish people are no longer "other," but are the "We." I would like to see Keshet have more staff and funding to continue its educational work. I know from personal experience self acceptance allows me to feel safe in the world. I cannot function well without that safety.I did not find it in my family, my school, or in my temple. I had to wait until I was an adult to find that safe haven. I found it in friends. Keshet added to my sense of well being in the world. Feeling okay about who we are can start at home and in our Jewish institutions. I want the next generation of Jewish LBGT to feel included, not excluded, self-love, not loathing, and empowerment not impotency. KESHET IS MAKING THIS HAPPEN!!! Berni Zisserson

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

money, money, money...look what they have done with so few resources..imagine what they could accomplish with more???

I'm very grateful for my experiences with Keshet. The organization is full of thoughtful, friendly, progressive individuals who go out of their way to make everyone involved feel welcome. As someone new to Boston, I was not fully equipped to handle how socially isolating it can be, but Keshet was there for me and I can say, with confidence, that several of my dearest friends are Keshet members.

I strongly believe in Keshet's mission and efficacy. Keshet’s mission "is to ensure that gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Jews are fully welcomed and included in all parts of the Jewish community." This is a challenge for the Jewish community, and Keshet is making a difference.

The Great!

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

creating greater understanding and acceptance of gay and lesbian Jews in the Jewish communal life.
