What we're about
Keshet Austin is a social group for LGBTQ Jews, their spouses, partners, significant others, families, allies, and friends, whether Jewish, gay or not. Keshet organizes programs to integrate Jewish life, learning and spirituality into our unique community.
"Keshet" means "rainbow" in Hebrew, and as a reflection, Keshet members are all ages and come from a variety of backgrounds and Jewish affiliations. We welcome diversity and inclusion. We are Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist, Orthodox, secular, and liberal. And we come from all types of backgrounds.
Keshet Austin hosts a variety of events such as: Shabbat dinners, onegs or pronegs at local synagogues, Jewish holiday parties, cultural, spiritual and educational events, Tikkun Olam opportunities, and social events that are just plain fun.
