Review for Jewish Mosaic: The National Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The have been instrumental in empowering LGBTQ Jews- religious, secular, cultural, and any combination- in making challenging, supportive, empowering, and healing communities and contexts to be both Queer, Jewish, Jewishly Queer, and Queered Jewish.

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

the way I get to see myself more completely in our holy texts- specifically Torah- as a lesbian religious Jew.

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

engaging, spoke with me as an equal despite her many distinguished accomplishments, took me seriously, kind, sociable, supportive, and- despite everything she has already done for our communities- invested in learning and growing more.

Review for J Street Education Fund, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I stand with J Street because justice, security, and peace in Israel won't come until our conversations are focused on the long-term work we need to do make peace rather than just our short-term fears. Finally, someone gets that- J STREET!

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

ensure a two-state solution within 10 years and help bring peace, dignity, safety, and security to Israel and Palestine.
