Hi {First name},

I know you share my strong commitment to realizing full LGBTQ+ equality in Jewish life and beyond. Will you join me in supporting Keshet and honoring six leaders who give us hope at OUTstanding! 2023?

The gala takes place on Thursday, November 9th in Boston and online, raising critical funds for Keshet to train Jewish institutions to build communities of belonging, to create spaces where all queer youth feel seen and valued, and to mobilize Jewish support for LGBTQ rights.

Subject: Please join us for OUTstanding! 2023!

Dear Friends,

Our hearts were broken by the October 7 attacks on our Israeli family. We continue to grieve as violence and suffering escalate in Israel and Gaza. At this time of fear and uncertainty, we know that resilience and courage are our most powerful tools. And being in community is good for our souls.

Please join us Thursday, November 9th at 6pm ET to honor six heroes who lead with a courageous heart and give us hope for a better future — all to benefit LGBTQ+ equality in Jewish life. OUTstanding! 2023 takes place online everywhere and in-person at the Newton Collaborative Jewish Campus in Newton, MA and online everywhere online.
