- Nationwide, Keshet offers signature train-the-trainer institutes, giving educators and community leaders the skills and tools they need to train their peers in fostering safe, inclusive classrooms, youth groups, summer camps, and more. Keshet has certified trainers in over 200 Jewish communities around the country. They are building a powerful base of leaders and change agents. We know from Jewish youth, parents, and educators that anti-gay bullying and gender policing are still endemic in Jewish youth settings. We know that there are still Jewish professionals who are pressured to remain closeted if they want to keep their jobs. We know that many LGBT Jewish adults who seek a home in the Jewish community feel unseen and unwanted. Keshet will work for a day in which Jews of all sexual orientations and gender identities can live fully integrated Jewish lives. We envision a Jewish world in which LGBT Jews are not merely tolerated or accepted; we envision communities where the ethos of justice, caring, and inclusion that encapsulates the best of Jewish tradition is seen and felt by all Jews. Join us in making this vision a reality. “Keshet” Keshet (קשת, KEH-shet) is a Hebrew word, meaning both “rainbow,” a symbol of LGBT pride, and “bow,” an instrument for action.
