The LGBTQ+ Mentorship Program is a project of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies and JewishCare NSW. It is designed to support, engage, and mentor Jewish LGBTQ+ individuals who are looking for guidance and community.

Through one-on-one mentoring sessions, informal group discussions and a range of sessions with professional guest speakers, participants will learn more about themselves and their personal journey, create a Jewish LGBTQ+ support network, and form steadfast relationships with mentors and mentees.

The aim is to build a stronger, more inclusive and diverse NSW Jewish community, where all LGBTQ+ individuals feel welcomed, supported, celebrated and empowered.

“Some of us are fortunate enough to find mentorship and community early in life. As a young queer Jewish person I would have loved the opportunity to engage with the incredible mentors that this program provides. I can’t wait to see the connections that are built, and to see young queer Jews empowered in our community.” Josh Kirsh, Chair of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies LGBTQ+ Working Party.
