Nehirim was the first place where I discovered a queer Jewish community. Even though there are months between retreats, each time I come back that feeling of community grows stronger. I am very grateful to Nehirim for introducing me to a world in which I belong.

It is a pleasure to partner with Nehirim in creating LGBT spiritual community together. They are also truly inclusive of the full diversity of the queer Jewish community, and open to spiritual seekers, non-Jewish partners and allies.

Absolutely amazing. I felt a sense of community, of belonging, of caring I've only felt in my own family. Through this organization, I was able to build community, make friends, deepen my knowledge and practice of Judaism, and find my partner for life!!!!!!! Outstanding people, outstanding organization.
