JPride Baltimore is excited to announce a new grant award to Keshet.
The Keshet Neshamot/Rainbow Souls Shabbaton: A Retreat of Radiant Belonging, co-led by the JOC Mishpacha Project and Keshet on Feb 16-18, 2024, is a Shabbat weekend retreat at Pearlstone Retreat Center, in Baltimore, Maryland, for 18+ QJOC (queer Jews of Color). Focused on joy, healing, and the diverse tapestry of QJOC experiences, the Shabbaton, with 20-25 participants, will offer transformative workshops, discussions, and shared narratives. Aligned with JPride’s mission, the event aims to be a celebratory space that nurtures and fosters spaces with higher levels of belonging and psychological safety for a historically marginalized portion of the Jewish demographic in the United States. We hope that participants will leave with a seed of change propelling them to feel more excited and comfortable navigating their relationship with Judaism and Jewish spaces. JPride grant funding will support the event logistics, guest speakers, workshops, and specifically, resources amplifying QJOC voices that all participants will receive.
We are thrilled to announce that early-bird registration for The Keshet Neshamot/Rainbow Souls Shabbaton: A Retreat of Radiant Belonging is officially OPEN until January 7 at 11:59 pm EST!
Date: February 16-18, 2024
