The Southern Jewish Resource Network for Gender & Sexual Diversity (SOJOURN) is the American South's resource for Jewish & LGBTQ+ programming, education, support, and advocacy. Our mission is to advance LGBTQ+ affirmation and empowerment across the South.
SOJOURN is proud to offer a variety of educational activities and experiences inspired by Jewish and universal values. Our programs focus on providing students, teachers, clergy, and communities the tools to be welcoming for gender and sexually diverse people; address gender equity and gender roles; enhance Judaic learning; and to prevent suicide.
SOJOURN has been named one of North America’s top 50 innovative Jewish organizations in the thirteenth annual Slingshot Guide. The Guide is a go-to resource for volunteers, activists and donors looking for new opportunities and projects that, through their innovative nature, will ensure the Jewish community remains relevant and thriving.

People need to connect in many ways. Let us help you get to where you want to go.
SOJOURN travels across the South to work with local communities on LGBTQ acceptance and affirmation.
Help us expand our reach as we work towards full inclusion in Jewish life throughout the Southeast.
