WHO ARE WE
Laviot was created in the summer of 2018 by two people with a common goal: to build a community for women and non-binary people who are LGBT+ and Jewish. We wanted Laviot to be a space where we could be all those things fully, at the same time, and meet others in the same niche intersection of identities.
Our core community is those who lie in this intersection, and supporting our core we have many brilliant allies. Though our events primarily cater to our core community, we create regular programming open to our allies too, whether that be everyone across the LGBT+ spectrum, all Jews or absolutely everyone.
It was important that our community be social and accessible and so we have an online home alongside our regular in person events. Everyone at Laviot is volunteering their time and services to help us make our vision a reality.
Our Judaism is non-denominational. Our events are Kosher and Shabbat friendly where possible, and always fully vegetarian.
We make space for everyone who considers themself under the LGBT+ umbrella, no matter what letter you identify with, or where you sit on the gender diversity and attraction spectrums.
WOMEN AND NON-BINARY
You don't have to be female, have a vagina or two x chromosomes, we welcome gender diversity here.
