I NEED THIS
“Keshet gives me a sense of community and warmth and comfort while helping me find outlets and fellow activists for my progressive politics. This is who I am. As a queer Jew, and as a person, I have always needed to feel like I am a part of a community. These are my people, and if I couldn’t connect to my community, I couldn’t shine in life. Pure and simple, I need this.”
– JoJo Jacobson, Keshet leader, Boston, MA
From singles mixers to Shabbat dinners to our Beit Midrash series, where participants study traditional texts from a queer angle, our events offer opportunities for LGBTQ Jews to celebrate and (re)connect with their Jewish identities, engage in Jewish learning, and grow as leaders in the Jewish community.
Currently we host and co-sponsor events with other LGBTQ and Jewish organizations in Massachusetts and the Bay Area. Our events are planned by community members and are open to all LGBTQ Jews, our friends, and families.
