GLOE

Overview

The Kurlander Program for GLBTQ Outreach & Engagement

Connecting LGBTQIA Jews at the Edlavitch DCJCC

GLOE, the first and only full-time LGBTQIA engagement program at any Jewish Community Center in the world, serves DC’s queer Jewish community (and our friends/allies) through an array of unique and meaningful programs in the areas of arts and culture, community service, holidays and spirituality, social justice, and of course, social events.

GLOE also hosts events specifically geared towards LGBTQIA youth and LGBTQIA-parented families, providing opportunities all year long to create community through GLOE Youth & Family.

Whether your Jewish identity involves creating new LGBTQIA rituals, or if it starts and ends with a bagel at brunch, you’ll fit right in at GLOE.
