JP NOLA’s mission is to provide information, resources, and affirmation to Louisiana’s LGBTQ Jewish population. We will utilize our relationships with local synagogues, agencies, and other organizations to support, partner on, and promote LGBTQ-related programming, events, and opportunities. JP NOLA will participate in LGBTQ advocacy and be the centralizing resource for Jewish LGBTQ activities in Greater New Orleans.

 

JP NOLA is an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans: Goldring Family Foundation Center for Jewish-Multicultural Affairs.


 

 

 

Three Jewish Federation initiatives - the Goldring Center for Jewish-Multicultural Affairs, JP NOLA, and the Leventhal Center for Interfaith Families - are partnering with Temple Sinai to host a virtual Passover seder on Monday, March 29 for the LGBTQ community and the allies who love and support them.
