About Keshet:

Keshet works for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews and our families in Jewish life. We turn values at the heart of Judaism—equality, inclusion, and human dignity—into action in Jewish communities across North America. We equip Jewish organizations with the tools to build LGBTQ-affirming communities, create spaces for queer Jewish teens to feel seen and valued, and mobilize the Jewish community to fight for LGBTQ rights nationwide.

As an organization that teaches the importance of proactive LGBTQ inclusive messages and actions, Keshet recognizes the similar need to make our commitment to racial equity and justice clear and explicit. We commit to embed a racial equity and justice lens into Keshet’s leadership and staff structure, political analysis, organizational policies, communications, and program content.

Frequently cited statistics show that women, trans, and nonbinary people as well as other structurally marginalized groups are more likely to apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. Keshet encourages you to break that statistic and to apply for stretch positions. No one ever meets 100% of the qualifications. We look forward to your application.
