Keshet is a wonderful organization that works to make the larger Jewish community more welcoming and inclusive of the GLBT community. I first became acquainted with Keshet when I attended a speed dating event they held many years ago. It was really fun, and whaddaya know? - I met my partner there! So, yes, I am one of several (dare I say, "many?") love connections that Keshet has made. Also, at this point, Keshet really is my primary tie to the Jewish community, and of course to the Jewish GLBT community in Boston because Keshet is the foundation of the Jewish GLBT community in our city. So, I am indebted to Keshet in many ways, and I applaud their work - their mission, their trainings, "Hineini," etc. Because of Keshet, I am able to live more openly in both my Jewish and queer identities.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
its diverse programming and at the annual Keshet Cabaret, where one can see the Keshet community and its loyal supporters.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
how there's a place for everyone.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
energetic, dedicated, smart, innovative, creative, and kind.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make the world much safer and even more welcoming for the Jewish GLBT community, especially the youth.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Donor & I have attended Keshet events and shmoozed with the wonderful staff.
