Keshet is a national organization that works for full LGBTQ equality and inclusion in Jewish life. Led and supported by LGBTQ Jews and straight allies, Keshet cultivates the spirit and practice of inclusion in all parts of the Jewish community. We began as a small, grassroots group working for change in the Greater Boston area, and we are now a national organization with offices in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York in addition to our national office in Boston.
Our work is guided by a vision of a world where all Jewish organizations and communities are strengthened by LGBTQ-inclusive policy, programming, culture, and leadership, and where Jews of all sexual orientations and gender identities can live fully integrated Jewish lives.
Keshet is the only organization in the U.S. that works for LGBTQ inclusion in all facets of Jewish life – synagogues, Hebrew schools, day schools, youth groups, summer camps, social service organizations, and other communal agencies. Through training, coaching, and resource development, we have partnered with clergy, educators, and volunteers at hundreds of Jewish institutions nationwide to equip them with the tools and knowledge they need to be effective agents of change.
