Bennett Decker

Bennett Decker is originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a student at the Joint Program between the Jewish Theological Seminary and Columbia University where he received dual BAs Political Science and Talmud. Bennett currently combines his desire to make the world a more just place and Judaism during his day job at T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights.

Bennett got involved with Keshet for the first time as a participant on the Keshet Teen Shabbaton during his senior year in High School. Since then, Keshet has helped him to find queer Jews to be thought partners, teachers, justice-seekers, and friends together in unique community with. He has also fallen in love with the work that Keshet does, particularly for teens and youth; helping Queer Jews unite those two parts of their identity that Bennett feels are the two most essential parts of his.
