If you cared about Hineini, the documentary about Shulamit Izen and her coming out process at the New Jewish High School in Boston, you’ll want to get on board with helping reach even more people. Thursday night, August 30, will be a great time to get out and support the work that Keshet is doing to make Jewish educational institutions and communal organizations safe spaces for LGBT Jews. Grand old Reform synagogue Ohabei Shalom at 1187 Beacon St in Brookline (you’ll feel the 50s in the stained glass, although the dome roof kind of reminds me of a mosque!) is hosting Keshet’s Benefit Folk Concert featuring P.J. Shapiro, Mark Lipman, and Rebecca Katz. Tickets range from $15-$25. Chip in for equality, there’s so much work to be done to make our Jewish spaces ones in which all Jews feel included and respected. Concert starts at 6:30pm, 617-524-9227 for questions.
