I love Keshet--they are doing amazing work both locally in Boston and nationally. Keshet is at the forefront of the civil rights battles of ours time: equal marriage and transgender equality.

The Great!

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

their effective political action at the state level, and national education initiatives through the Safe Schools project.

Ways to make it better...

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

continue the great work that Keshet does and expand the national programs.

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

Ways to make it better...

they had more resources to do their great work.

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

funding, funding, funding.

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

funding is always a challenge for non-profits that rely on donors and foundation support. Keshet has done a good job of building a diverse funding base.

I'm always thoroughly impressed with Keshet's work and look forward to their upcoming projects. I guess that's pretty similar to my feelings on Seth Rogen, but he doesn't do an amazing job with community outreach and LGBT inclusion. Though he should!

I think Keshet is wonderful organization because it helps bring the Jewish community together. It allows individuals who are normally left out, to feel welcome and a part of a group.

An amazing organization that has added much to the Boston Jewish Community. Between the release of their heartwarming film Hineni to their work for safe space within Jewish schools and summer camps, they have brought a new understanding of diversity to Boston. I have watched this organization grow in numbers and strength through wonderfully innovative staff and volunteers.

Keshet is a model of how to thoughtfully grow an organization with integrity. It has moved from a fledgling start-up to a full fledged powerhouse as the result of strong leadership, deliberate strategic planning, meaningful partnerships, and a strong public presence. Keshet has navigated its local/national identity with finesse and serves as a model to other organizations of how to grow with transparency and strength.

I have been a champion of Idit Klein's work in the glbtq community and have had the great pleasure to watch Keshet grow under her expert guardianship. With education, inspiration and vision, Idit has literally set the benchmark for glbtq inclusion in the Jewish community. Keshet reaches with open arms to embrace and unite the many organizations working toward equality - it is truly the eponymous "rainbow". As a spokesperson, Idit cuts with insight and nuance to inject broader dialogues about tolerance with a common sense and compassion that leads to understanding, and ultimately, to full inclusion. Ahead of its time, Keshet is already active at the more challenging forefront of transgender rights in Massachusetts. I believe the country will follow . . .

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.

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.

I am proud to say that I have been a donor to Keshet for many years. It is an honor to be associated with this courageous, vitally important organization. Keshet has contributed to the Jewish community and to the larger society in SO many ways, among them by producing the wonderful documentary HINENI. It is worth noting that I'm heterosexual. Keshet deserves support from every heterosexual who cares in the abstract about social justice and who cares concretely about the LGBTQ family, friends, and coworkers we're lucky enough to know. I have nothing but admiration for Keshet and for its outstanding executive director, Idit Klein.
