Keshet UK is the forum working to champion the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and questioning people in all areas of Jewish life in the United Kingdom.
As a social action organisation founded in 2011, its mission is to advocate for change on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) Jews in Great Britain. We work with the British Jewish community and LGBT community to create a more inclusive Jewish community and to provide advice and support to organisations seeking to improve the way they work with LGBT Jews.
The organisation was started by individuals who came together around a common commitment to working for change in the community. All our successes so far have been achieved by volunteers, both LGBT Jews and allies. We are mostly based within London, but not exclusively so. The organisation has established itself formally with a constitution through which we hope to sustain sound governance.
Our priorities include working with schools, synagogues and other community organisations. We hope that our work will broaden LGBT Jewish inclusion, incubate new projects as we plan for the future needs of the LGBT Jewish community.
