We create community for Orthodox LGBT Jews who wish to maintain their Jewish observance and find meaningful religious community.

We help traditional communities become more WELCOMING by addressing the needs of their LGBT  members and families while maintaining their commitments to Halacha.

We keep parents and children together by providing resources and A GATHERING PLACE during our parent retreat.
