I count on Keshet to keep me abreast of pertinent issues in the Jewish queer community that represent particular points of view. I frequently direct my social work students to Keshet for articles and commentary that I believe may be relevant and stimulate dialogue.

Keshet is an incredible organization that brings Jewish life to LGBTQ Jews that are looking for more out of their Jewish involvement. Keshet focuses their efforts on inclusion, and I've been wildly impressed with the work Keshet does on a national level, and the work it has been doing locally in Miami.

The Jewish world is indeed a better place with Keshet in it!

Keshet is doing a fantastic job that no one else is doing in the Jewish community of North America today. Their devotion and commitment, as well as their peaceful and friendly approach to different types of communities and people are making the change of approach towards lgbt's in Jewish communities a living reality in stead of just empty words.

Keshet is an amazing organization that fills many needs. The only thing that could make Keshet better would be for it to exist in more places. May the organization's mission continue to reach those who need support the most.

Keshet is the only group working nationally on behalf of LGBT Jews, and they do it with huge energy, compassion, and attention to detail. They're smart and focused and humane. In particular I'd point to their efforts at making the transgender part of "LGBT" really significant, but also to their deeply humane and deeply Jewish way of working for a kinder world.
