The Open Yad Project is a community of Jewish and Jew-curious young adults who aim to provide a safe, supportive, and joyous space for mutual celebration and personal growth through a Jewish lens. We are rooted in an affirmation of queer and diverse identities.

We usually host at least one event a month. This is a low-key way for Jews, Jew-ish people, those who are Jew-curious, and those who love and support us to come together. Many events are social and cultural, though keep an eye out for events that sprinkle in Jewish practice and ritual in fun and accessible ways!
You'll also find members of Open Yad at community-wide Kol Ami events, from weekly Shabbat services to social gatherings to holiday and simcha celebrations.  So make sure to keep up to date with the congregation's calendar as well.
Open Yad events are open to all adults in their 20s and 30s. You do not have to be a member of Kol Ami to attend.
