As a member of the board of JPride, a nonprofit in San Diego that has a similiar mission to Keshet Inc., the advise and guidance by the Keshet staff to our organization has been invaluable. Their role in helping other similar organizations around the country is part of their success in providing the tools and training to enable our organization succeed. Keshet is wonderful role model for all other nonprofits with an outreach to the LGBT communities.
I discovered Keshet when I was seeking a spiritual and politically active gay Jewish community. Though I was at the time living in Vermont, the staff at Boston-based Keshet made me feel immediately welcome. The organization was instrumental in connecting me to others like myself, as well as in providing me pathways for local action in my community and continuing education and spirituality in my life. The organization is stepping forward nationally in a way that no others have to-date. Keshet is vital to our building wholistic spiritual community in a highly divisive age.
Without a doubt Keshet is the one organization I have been involved with which has made a critical difference in the lives of LGBTQ individuals and their families. Literally on a shoestring Idit Klein has spearheaded the growth of Keshet and has created a local,national and international organization which has changed attitudes, developed awareness and educated community leaders and made the world a much more acceptable place for LGBTQ people.
Keshet is an amazing organization that does valuable work! My own experience and that of many people I know has been exceedingly positive.
Keshet is led by its greatest asset - Idit Klein. Her leadership is superb. The organization has supplied great speakers for my former temple, helps with program ideas, and is a pleasure to work with. its own events are well run and a pleasure to attend. Keshet deserves generous national support in its great mission.
