The Eshel resource guide to advance understanding and provide support to the Orthodox LGBTQ community.  The webpage offers books and films to explore LGBTQ and Jewish topics, a speaker's bureau, a list of LGBTQ organizations in North America and Israel, a support help-line, and links to additional online resources. 

Eshel’s mission is to create a future for Orthodox lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals, and their families. Through its innovative and culturally sensitive programming, Eshel works with each individual, family, and community in creating a place for their LGBTQ members. Eshel envisions a world where Orthodox LGBTQ individuals can live out their lives in the Orthodox communities of their choice.
