Mission

We advocate for the diversity that has characterized the Jewish people throughout history, and the diversity that is increasing through contemporary forces such as intermarriage, conversion and adoption.

As the only professional organization that works specifically around racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity in Jewish life, Be’chol Lashon’s programs have been recognized for their success in outreach, community building and creating an inclusive, diverse vision of the Jewish community.

We foster engagement for people who might otherwise not be a part of Jewish life, in addition to those who want to experience a more expansive Judaism. Like the rabbinic tradition to convey nechemta (comfort and hope), Be’chol Lashon’s philosophy strives to heal and create a positive vision for the Jewish future.

We help establish the language and experience of Jewish diversity as an integral part of Jewish identity.
