Thanks for joining us in Rome!

The World Congress: Keshet Ga’avah with our member organization MDKI of Rome were excited to welcome the public to an amazing conference from the 15th to the 18th of March. The price was only 90 euros to join us for a full four days of events. We had conversations about Muslim and Jewish engagement, LGBTQ people seeking asylum in Italy, preventing and fighting gender-based violence against women,  and civil rights in Israel. There was a guided tour of the former Jewish ghetto of Rome. Most exciting, there was simultaneous translation during the event in English. We have published photos from the event on our Instagram (@theworldcongresskeshetgaavah) and Facebook pages. View the program!

What We Do

Global Advocacy

The only truly global LGBTQIA+ Jewish organization with our volunteers reflecting the diversity of our member organizations from all over the world. We have served organizations in the Middle East, North America, South America, Europe, Oceania, and Africa.

International Conferences

23 conferences. Our first conference was held in Washington D.C. in 1976. We went to Buenos Aires in March 2017 with JAG and Paris in September of 2017 with Beit Haverim. Look out for our next conference in Rome in March of 2018 with MDKI.

Community Outreach

We reach out to remote Jewish communities. In 2010, we helped translate training packages for LGBTQIA+ inclusion delivered to Buenos Aires. We connect smaller organizations with larger ones in hopes of achieving global equality for LGBTQIA+ Jews.
