Review for Keshet Inc, Jamaica Plain, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Keshet combines direct service to GLBT Jews in Greater Boston with local and national advocacy for full inclusion by Jewish institutions, especially schools. That's a winning and effective combination.

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

Gay-straight alliances forming at Jewish day schools.

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

Train all the staff in community organizing principles (which may already be the case!)

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

Idit's commitment to organizing for change.

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

Fun, committed, smart, experienced.

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

Replicate its model in more cities

Ways to make it better...

I lived in Boston so I could participate in Keshet's programs there.

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

Continued homophobia and attracting more funding.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & My organization granted to Keshet for its groundbreaking work to promote GLBT inclusion at an institution-wide level in Jewish communal organizations.
