Dear Friends,

GLOE - the Kurlander Program for GLBTQ Outreach and Engagement remains front and center in the mission and vision of the Edlavitch DCJCC. Please help us support the GLBTQ community and celebrate the 10th Anniversary of GLOE by making a gift today, which enables us to:

  • Reach thousands of GLBTQ members and allies each year in the DC community.
  • Engage the GLBTQ community through signature programming that addresses key issues and challenges in the Jewish GLBTQ community.
  • Bring pride and joy through Shabbat dinners, The National Rainbow Seder, The Annual Purim Event, and Talmud study.
  • Educate individuals and couples about adoption and parenting skills, and provides Jewish life programming for GLBTQ families and children.
  • Offer programs across the arts that examine issues facing GLBTQ members of the Jewish and broader community.
  • Provide a safe space to celebrate, socialize, and enjoy the company of GLBTQ Jews and our friends, including local groups that support the GLBTQ Jewish community.
  • Stand out as a national model for GLBTQ Jewish outreach and engagement and stands strong in the face of threats to our community.


With you, we will continue this important work ahead…


As we plan for the future, and build upon our success, we must turn to you, members of our GLOE community, to ask you to make GLOE a philanthropic priority in your life. Please recognize GLOE’s 10th anniversary by making a contribution at edcjcc.org/supportGLOE.

Thank you in advance for your partnership and investment in GLOE.

With gratitude,
