I discovered Keshet when I was seeking a spiritual and politically active gay Jewish community. Though I was at the time living in Vermont, the staff at Boston-based Keshet made me feel immediately welcome. The organization was instrumental in connecting me to others like myself, as well as in providing me pathways for local action in my community and continuing education and spirituality in my life. The organization is stepping forward nationally in a way that no others have to-date. Keshet is vital to our building wholistic spiritual community in a highly divisive age.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the numbers of people who have found safety and community and political activism together as Jews and as queers.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The high calibre and welcoming nature of the staff
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make huge strides in educating people all over the country, as well as supporting political activism leading to the inclusion of all people.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I help at events that engage diverse communities of people in coming together as community.
