During this time, Klein has built Keshet from a one-person, local organization with an annual budget of $42,000 to an 18-person, national organization with an annual budget of nearly two million. Klein also served as the Executive Producer of Keshet’s award-winning documentary film Hineini: Coming Out in a Jewish High School. Klein was honored by the Jewish Women’s Archive with a Women Who Dared award and named to the Forward 50.
