Hey teens, Project Tikvah is back!

For the second of our three-part series, we’re focusing on LGBTQ Jewish identity and allyship. Sessions will begin in February and will be held at local synagogues and JCCs*. We’re excited to be partnering with Keshet, which works for the full equality of LGBTQ Jews and their families in Jewish life.

During Project Tikvah, you’ll:
• Explore LGBTQ terms and concepts through a lens of Jewish values
• Learn about Keshet’s resources, programs, and spaces for LGBTQ and ally teens
• Gain the tools and skills to advocate for LGBTQ equality and belonging in your home, school, Jewish community and world 
• Ensure that our Jewish communities are spaces where we can all bring our whole selves, and feel seen and valued, regardless of who we love or how we identify

All participants will receive 15 hours of community service upon completion of the program.

Sunday, February 6, 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., Mandel JCC – Boynton Beach
Sunday, February 13, 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., Temple Israel in West Palm Beach
Sunday, February 27, 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., Mandel JCC – Palm Beach Gardens

Cost: $18, winter series
