We have launched a variety of initiatives in the same spirit as our Shabbatonim. Check out our Youth page for upcoming programs and events!

Being a teenager is hard. For queer Jewish teens, the social pressures to fit in or the anxieties of standing out may feel even harder — especially in a world where homophobia, transphobia, and anti-Semitism are on the rise. At Keshet’s Shabbat retreats, LGBTQ and ally Jewish teens are able to exhale; to find their place and their voice as emerging Jewish leaders. Together, they build meaningful friendships, engage in deep Jewish learning, and return home to build a world we can all be proud of.
The safety of our community and all communities is of the utmost importance to Keshet. As the COVID pandemic continues we will re-evaluate conditions for safety and consult with partner organizations and medical professionals before proceeding with in-person programming. All our in-person youth programs will adhere to local guidelines.
We ask all eligible individuals to be vaccinated. We will send out a health check reminder prior to the Shabbaton, reminding all participants to join us only if they are in good health with no cold or flu symptoms.
