Open Arms and Hearts
The Reutlinger Community is welcoming to all. We welcome all
residents with open arms and hearts – without discrimination as
to race, age, religion, sex, national origin, socioeconomic
status or disability. We welcome all LGBTQ seniors.
We are also part of the Keshet network, an organization that
works for the full equality of LGBTQ Jews and families in Jewish
life. Keshet envisions a world in which all LGBTQ Jews can live
with full equality, justice and dignity. We partnered with Keshet
because we believe it strengthens Jewish communities by equipping
Jewish organizations, like ours, with the skills and knowledge to
build LGBTQ-Affirming communities, and create spaces in which all
LGBTQ Jewish residents feel seen and valued.
