Meet the people behind J-Bagel: http://pennhillel.org/jbagel/board
J-Bagel is Penn’s Jewish Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, and Ally (LGBTQIA) Community. Funded by Penn Hillel, J-Bagel hosts regular Shabbat dinners, educational, and social programs. We are an active and diverse organization, providing a fun and safe space for our members from across the Jewish and LGBTQIA spectrums, for undergraduate and graduate students. We are the only university-run queer Jewish organization in Philadelphia, and welcome students from throughout the region to our events. J-Bagel is affiliated with the Penn LGBT Center, and NUJLS, the National Union of Jewish LGBTQQI Students, a federation of queer Jewish youth.
