STANDING PROUD

This is what pride looks like. About 1 in 10 adults in Jewish households in the New York area identify as LGBTQ. We’re more committed than ever to funding projects so people who are LGBTQ have access to engaging and supportive spaces and resources.

Pride at All Ages

In honor of Pride month, read about a program fostering friendships between LGBTQ+ teens and older adults.

OUR IMPACT

  • Kids from ages 6 to 17 of all sexual orientations and gender identities will find a safe place for a fabulous summer at Camp Ga’avah on Long Island, New Country Pride Camp on Staten Island, and 92Y Camp Pride in Rockland County. These summer day camp experiences give kids the opportunity to celebrate Shabbat, participate in tikkun olam projects, and learn skills to better navigate their individual journeys. One camper, Max, had this to say about Camp Ga’avah, “It is a very free space, always accepting of people.” See the full story.
  • SVARA in New York offers virtual Jewish experiences and Talmud learning for queer Jewish New Yorkers. SVARA’s revolutionary method of learning is now spreading across New York Jewish organizations, including synagogues, JCCs, and beyond.

The Meaning of Empathy

See how young people and counselors at Camp Ga’avah define what empathy means to them.

UJAPride is a safe, inclusive space for people who identify as LGBTQ, who are LGBTQ allies, and who want to strengthen our community and make an impact.
