I know about Keshet on an organizational level because one of my friends is a staff person there. Keshet does a great job of offering leadership opportunities for new staff and within its membership base. It recognizes the importance of cultivating the leadership of its members as a way to maintain its long-term sustainability. They also offer diverse programming - from GLBTQ advocacy work to community building through Jewish practice and social outings. They are always busy on some project!

The Great!

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

how many people they turn out for events.

Ways to make it better...

hire more community organizers.

More feedback...

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

hearing about how seriously it takes its membership base and how to include allies to GBLTQ folks in the mix.

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

gregarious and detail-oriented.

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

create a formal model for doing GBLTQ Jewish inclusion work nationally and lead trainings across the country; partner with more organizations and join coalitions to fight discrimination on a national scale; put more resource into Jewish GBLTQ youth.

Ways to make it better...

I had actually turned myself out to an event! I still want to!

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

expanding to fit the needs of the GBLTQ Jewish community with a small budget.

Keshet is the go-to organization for all things queer and Jewish. Besides their amazing programming, their staff is helpful and responsive in responding to requests for ideas, information and contacts. As someone working in the Jewish world (as well as a queer Jew), I definitely depend on Keshet.

Keshet makes me wish I had grown up in the Boston area because I would love to have been involved with the Queer Jewish Youth Group. My first experience with them was when they brought HINENI to my high school, a pluralistic Jewish school where we weren't allowed to have a GSA. It was really powerful to see another girl struggle with the same things I was. Since the I have moved to Boston and attended a few Keshet events. Having the queer Jewish presence is wonderful, even if I can't make it to many of their events.

The Great!

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

the amazing reception that my partly Conservative high school had to HINENI.
