This January join us at the Vilna Shul for Havurah on the Hill's monthly Shabbat and hear from one of the most celebrated Jewish leaders here in Boston!
Idit Klein has been an activist for equality and social justice for the past 20 years. Since 2001, she has served as Executive Director of Keshet. During this time, Klein has built Keshet from a one-person, local organization with an annual budget of $42,000 to an 18-person, national organization with an annual budget of nearly two million. Klein also served as the Executive Producer of Keshet’s award-winning documentary film Hineini: Coming Out in a Jewish High School. Klein was honored by the Jewish Women’s Archive with a Women Who Dared award and named to the Forward 50.

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.
