KESHET INC
June 26, 2009

My experience with Keshet, as a non-Jew, has been welcoming and amazing. The organization does an amazing job of involving all in their endeavors and has been an integral part of my spiritual life. Their ability to create opportunities to engage with affirming GLBT people is impressive and powerful. After volunteering at the Cabaret I was so moved by the sense of family and community, and truly felt as if I belonged somewhere. I have not expereinced that feeling before, and it was a true gift that the staff and supporters of Keshet nurture. Keshet is an invaluable organization that is a beacon of light in the GLBT community.

The Great!

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

the amazing way they support community building for GLBT people in Boston.

Ways to make it better...

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

not change a thing.

More feedback

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

it's spirit and welcoming philosophy.

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

passionate about their work and dedicated to the mission of the organization. They were friendly and welcoming of newcomers and were amazing ambasadors for Keshet.

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

continue to do the amazing work it does to increase the acceptance of GLBT people in Jewish culture and religion and be an amazing leader working with other faiths as a leader in an Interfaith Coalition to create a welcoming and affirming faith group.

Ways to make it better...

nothing bad to say.

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

needing more financial resources to continue to grow the programming and messaging to reach more people.

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

it is amazing!
