(Boston) Nehirim LGBTQ Jewish Students Retreat 2014

My name is Alissa Platcow and I am a student at UMass. I am emailing you today to inform you of the upcoming Nehirim Student Retreat from February 14th through the 16th. Nehirim is a national community of LGBT Jews and allies committed to a more just and inclusive world. It is a nondenominational, nonprofit organization.

With a diverse range of speakers including MTV reality show star, Rachel Robinson and both the director of Keshet and PFLAG, this event is going to be jam packed. The retreat held at Boston University, will offer a unique learning and networking experience for students throughout the entire country. For a list of chairs and speakers please visit the Nehirim website at http://www.nehirim.org/studentretreat/

As a student co-chair of this event, I would love to see participation from the Valley. Nehirim is the only organization that facilitates a Jewish LGBTQ student retreat in the world so I cannot stress how excited I am about this event. Of course, we are inclusive of all religions and love to hear different perspectives. Would it be possible to send out the word through a Lyon's Pride list serve?

If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing back from you,

Alissa Platcow

(Further email clarification: all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as anyone aged 18-30 are welcome at the retreat.)
