Baltimore will be a welcoming and inclusive model Jewish Community for LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning) individuals, families and allies. In accomplishing this mission, Baltimore area LGBTQ Jewish individuals and their families will have rich and meaningful opportunities to fully participate in Jewish living and learning.
To carry out this vision, we:
Guide LGBTQ Jewish individuals, families and allies to resources that offer answers to questions, affirmation and empowerment
Create a Jewish LGBTQ community with safe spaces for positive social and spiritual interactions for individuals and their families
Enrich the Jewish identities of LGBTQ individuals so they can become active voices in the local community
Inform the Jewish community about LGBTQ interests and embrace the abundant diversity in the Jewish community
Advance human and civil rights for LGBTQ individuals and their families in the Jewish and regional community
Provide information and support to clergy and other Jewish professional and lay leaders so that they may engage in work around inclusion of LGBTQ Jews in their communities
