KESHET INC
June 29, 2009

Keshet is a wonderful organization in Boston with very committed staff. From Keshet trainings and interactions I have had with staff I've learned a lot about how to be more inclusive especially around trans-issues and I've been proud to march in the Boston Pride Parade with Keshet for the past 2 years.

The Great!

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

my own learning and conversations I have had with friends and colleague.

Ways to make it better...

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

continue to approach goals with a campaign mentality.

More feedback

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

meeting new people and building relationships.

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

incredible.

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

dramatically change how inclusive the Jewish community is on a national level.

Ways to make it better...

more events were run by other volunteers instead of just being staff lead. Although I understand how hard this is (and recognize that I'm not stepping up), it doesn't seem sustainable to have an organizer work so many nights.

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

that they don't have enough staff to do everything they would like.

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

I'm so proud that something that started in Boston is having such a national impact
