Keshet works for a world in which 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.
We work to create a community that does more than tolerate or accept LGBTQ Jews. We envision a future where the ethos of justice, caring, and inclusion that encapsulates the best of Jewish tradition is seen and felt by all Jewish youth and adults – gay, lesbian, bisexual, straight, and/or transgender. This is what we are doing to bring us to this day.
Keshet members will join many thousands of others in Washington, D.C., on January 20-21 to stand up for LGBTQ rights and the rights of all who are marginalized. We hope you will join us!
