Keshet works for a world in which all Jewish organizations and communities are strengthened by LGBT inclusive policy, programming, culture, and leadership and where Jews of all sexual orientations and gender identities can live fully integrated Jewish lives. We work to create a community that does more than tolerate or accept LGBT Jews. We envision a future where the ethos of justice, caring, and inclusion that encapsulates the best of Jewish tradition is seen and felt by all Jewish youth and adults – gay, lesbian, bisexual, straight, and/or transgender. This is what we are doing to bring us to this day.

NewCAJE is a pluralistic organization which embraces every denominational division of Judaism. NewCAJE brings together all settings of Jewish education: day schools, complementary schools, camps, JCC’s, independent schools and afterschool programs, online programs–just to name a few. NewCAJE welcomes anyone involved in the transmission of Jewish culture, custom and belief. We believe it is the responsibility of each generation to transmit the literature, ideas and ideals of Judaism to every new generation. NewCAJE include people in all job descriptions in the field including both professional and lay leaders: classroom teachers, youth group leaders, administrators, clergy, lay leaders, parents, artists, musicians, storytellers, entrepreneurs, authors, professors, etc. All these are teachers in our eyes and we believe that everyone has room to learn and something valuable to teach. NewCAJE advocates for Jewish education and for Jewish teachers as we have widely defined them. NewCAJE is a forum where new ideas are explored, new talent welcomed, and a multitude of ideas and resources shared. NewCAJE holds conferences annually. These conferences emphasize the sharing of information, techniques and problem solutions. They include the goal of deepening the educators grasp of both Jewish and educational learning. They create a network of support for Jewish educators and a conduit to innovation. As NewCAJE moves into the future, it will continue to articulate timely new principles that will guide its vision, but one thing is clear: Jewish educators have a common love–our people, our heritage and our tradition of learning. And we all have a common dream–that we can somehow affect those most important to us–our students, their parents and the communities that we serve.
