Nice Jewish Boys

As of May 2019, Sha’ar Zahav has joined forces with SF-Bay Area Nice Jewish Boys (NJB)! To find out more or join, please visit the NJB website.

Who We Are:

Nice Jewish Boys is a welcoming organization focused on fostering Jewish identity in an inclusive social setting for gay, bi, queer, and trans men.

We create social spaces and service opportunities so that our members can develop meaningful connections and make a positive impact on their community.

What We Do:

Bringing the Bay Area Jewish Queer Community Together

We strive to organize engaging events that bring our community together. Be it a social Happy Hour, a festive holiday celebration, a weekend hike or a volunteer opportunity to give back to the community, we invite you come shmooze with some Jews and join our friendly group.

Partnership With Sha’ar Zahav:

Events to take place at Sha’ar Zahav are religious in nature — Shabbat dinners and other Holiday get-togethers.

Sha’ar Zahav will be acting as fiscal sponsor for NJB SF.
