Welcome to Dayenu! We are the home of the Jewish LGBTQIA+ community in Sydney.
Dayenu Jewish LGBTQ+ Sydney is a community not-for-profit group that provides social events, advocacy and support to the diverse needs of Jewish LGBTQIA+ people in Sydney, as well as their partners, friends, families, and communities.
We work to nourish the ongoing conversation across the whole spectrum of religious observance, from Secular to Reform and Orthodox –
as well as valuing the vital contributions that sexuality and gender diversity bring to society.
One of our roles is to help represent the cultural diversity within LGBTQIA+ communities.
We do not conform to any political ideologies. We are inclusive of people of all genders. No exceptions.
Dayenu was born in 1999 as a cooperation between the local Lesbian and Gay Jewish groups to enter a combined float in the 2000 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.
Shortly after the parade, the group formalised and agreed to operate in order to:
- Provide outreach and support
- Deliver educational information and public representation
- Organise social activities for Jewish gays and lesbians and their partners, friends and family.
