Jewish LGBT

Bnai Keshet is an open and inclusive Jewish community, working hard to promote awareness, inclusion, and integration of LGBT families and youth in the Montclair Jewish community and beyond.  We rejoice in the diversity of our congregants and actively welcome all ages and family structures, including mature couples, singles, families with children, interfaith partners, gay men, lesbians, and transgender and non-binary people, persons with disabilities, and members of all racial, economic and ethnic backgrounds.  Please note: we have recently converted our upstairs single-occupancy restrooms to all-gender restrooms; please feel free to make use of these restrooms or any restrooms that fit your gender identity and you feel comfortable using. 


Keshet is a national grassroots organization that works for the full equality and inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Jews in Jewish life. Led and supported by LGBT Jews and straight allies, Keshet strives to cultivate the spirit and practice of inclusion in all parts of the Jewish community. They began as a small, grassroots group working for change in the Greater Boston area, and are now a national organization with a west coast office in the Bay Area in addition to the national office in Boston.  Bnai Keshet is proud to partner with Keshet through shared programming and educational opportunities.  

Their work is guided by a vision of a world where all Jewish organizations and communities are strengthened by LGBTQ-inclusive policy, programming, culture, and leadership and where Jews of all sexual orientations and gender identities can live fully integrated Jewish lives.
