Ga’avah is a student run space for queer Jews, or those interested in learning more about queer Judaism. We aim to create a space where people are willing to ask questions, find friendship and support, and get tapped into the ways we can support our queer/Jewish community at large. In the past we have held movie nights, Torah study, and open space to simply hang out. We are open to event suggestions, and you can contact us at If you want to stay updated, fill out our contact form at
