About Us

Kolenu is Seattle's Jewish LGBTQ Young Adult group. We are an inclusive community for LGBTQ Jews in Seattle. Kolenu strives to create an atmosphere where queer identified people from a wide spectrum of Jewish backgrounds can feel comfortable.

Our programming is geared towards LGBTQ Jews in their 20's and 30's, but we frequently hold events that are open to the entire community.

We are open to all expressions of identity, both in terms of Judaism and sexuality/gender. Past events include Gay 'Ol Purim Party, Light the Night: A GLBTQ Hanukkah, Shabbat Brunches, film and speakers nights, Pride Shabbat, and more.

Kolenu is run by volunteers, so please contact Alysa Rosen or Josh Furman if you would like to be involved. We can also be reached at kolenu.seattle@gmail.com
