JQ connects LGBTQ+ and ally Jews through meaningful programs and events.



JQ’s community programs offer the opportunity to connect with other LGBTQ+ Jews and allies through Shabbat dinners, holiday celebrations, and other identity enriching activities, providing a unique space for vulnerability and peer-to-peer connection, all while combating adversity, promoting leadership, and celebrating queer Jewish life.

We understand that there are a multitude of different communities within our LGBTQ+ Jewish community, and have created unique programming specifically geared towards those identities. See below to explore the different options of programming you can get involved with.
