Community Is Everything

Keshet creates a community of belonging where children and adults of all abilities learn, play, work and live together. We rejoice in successes together and lean on each other when needed. While our daily work is dedicated to each individual, our impact is so much greater. Keshet ensures that our community is more cooperative, accessible and compassionate for all.

Keshet’s concert is making a return in an entirely new way to bring our community together. The Kenny Rudin Keshet Concert and Campaign kicks off on August 8th with a goal of raising $500,000 in just 2 weeks and concludes with a fantastic evening featuring REO Speedwagon in November.

When you become part of the campaign and concert, you impact the lives of people in Keshet’s programs and foster a more inclusive community.

Our goal is to double the $500,000 raised at kick off. Help meet this challenge by making a campaign contribution, purchasing tickets or becoming a sponsor today.
