Press Release | November 2023 | NewOrg Helps Kesher Families Manage Data of Families with an LGBTQ+ Member, Group Sessions, Individual Sessions, and More.

NewOrg Helps Kesher Families Manage Data of Families with an LGBTQ+ Member, Group Sessions, Individual Sessions, and More.

Kesher is a non-profit organization that helps families stay connected to each other - parent to child, sibling to sibling, and grandparent to grandchild - by providing support and guidance for family members of individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ in the Orthodox Jewish community.

WASHINGTON, DC ( – Kesher Families works with families and various Orthodox communities and their leaders across the United States and in other countries, as well as with schools, rabbinic leaders, and organizations to provide education and support. Kesher Families was created to fulfill a need to support the unique circumstance of having an LGBTQ+ member in an Orthodox family. The non-profit was inspired by the many families who contacted the Penner family seeking a safe, warm, and compassionate space where they could openly discuss their experiences, conflicts, and emotions. Kesher Families was founded to create a future where LGBTQ+ family members can stay a valued part of families and communities and retain their connection to their religious tradition and their faith. By connecting parents with other parents who have or are currently going through the same experience, Kesher Families helps build a community of understanding and empathy to strengthen bonds with families and communities.  


As they continue to expand their programs, Kesher sought an all-in-one data management system to streamline their workflow and improve access to services and resources. Previously, important data regarding clients was stored in a secure but non-searchable digital file. With the helpful guidance of NewOrg’s implementation team, Kesher Families now has an efficient digital platform with which to manage all their Family intakes, appointments, Individual, Drop-In, and Group Sessions, Case Notes, Relationships, and more. 


“NewOrg’s incredible platform has streamlined our information and expanded our organizational capacity. Their Implementation and Support team have been responsive and supportive in building the database and management since going live.” 

– Daniela Bronstein, Executive Director
