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

5th Night of Hanukkah, 5 Inspiring Leaders: Don't miss our 2nd Annual Light the Night: A GLBTQ Hanukkah Community Gathering.

Celebrate the miracle of Hanukkah as we honor five community leaders who have been influential in our local fight for equality, including Rachael Brister, Executive Director of Three Dollar Bill Cinema and Fred Swanson, Executive Director of Gay City Health Project.

Enjoy latkes, dreidels, music and a beautiful candle lighting symbolizing both the miracle of Hanukkah and the idea that great leadership and community action will prevail against oppression.

FREE and open to the community. Allies, friends and family welcome. Due to the location, this is a 21+ event.

This event is made possible through the generous support of The Lobby Bar, Jewish Family Service (JFS), and Bashert; the LGBTQ Initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. Thank you also to our Community Sponsors, Congregation Tikvah Chadashah and Three Dollar Bill Cinema.
