Beit Klal Yisrael (WCGLBTJ Member)
BKY is a community of people who realise that many people have found that life in and around traditional synagogues offers only a traditional welcome, no real place and no recognition of their legitimate needs as Jewish people. Hence our name Beit Klal Yisrael, House of Israel.
We especially welcome
· Lesbian and gay Jews
· Patrilineal Jews
· People who are for one reason or another on their own and who would feel more comfortable in a community which emphasises individual presence and participation
· Jewish women who want to work out an independent and challenging relation, as women, to Judaism and to being Jewish
· Jewish women and men who may not think of themselves as formally religious, that is, as pious or observant, but who do have Jewish issues, questions and concerns (spiritual/existential/ethical/moral) they want to engage with
· Jewish women and men whose partners, though not Jewish, wish to be supportive and participate in the life of the community. Please click here to visit BKY online.
