LGBTQ Launch Party - slider WEB-01

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans has made a commitment to reach out to Louisiana’s Jewish LGBTQ individuals to provide socialization, advocacy, support/social services resources, and educational programming in conjunction with ongoing efforts in the community. We will be building a relationship with our local synagogues, agencies, and other LGBTQ organizations to support, partner-with, and promote LGBTQ-related programming and events.
