An online discussion featuring 2 of the 6 Boston-based Be the Change artists, Samuel Mendoza and Nayana LaFond, in conversation with leading experts Rabbi Claudia Kreiman, Idit Klein, and Elizabeth Schön Vainer.

Rabbi Claudia Kreiman, Senior Rabbi of Temple Beth Zion in Brookline, MA, is a tireless advocate for women’s issues as well as for the LGBTQ+ community.

Idit Klein, President and CEO of Keshet, works for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews and our families in Jewish life. Keshet equips Jewish organizations with the skills and knowledge to build LGBTQ-affirming communities, create spaces in which all queer Jewish youth feel seen and valued, and advance LGBTQ rights nationwide.

Elizabeth Schön Vainer, Program Director of Journey to Safety, the JF&CS response to domestic abuse, works to prevent domestic abuse in the Jewish community while helping those who have been abused find their way to safety, regardless of their background or beliefs.
