Please join us for an inspiring evening that will showcase Israel as a free, vibrant and progressive country with our shared values. We will screen the documentary "Gay Days," which chronicles the history of the LGBTQ rights movement in Israel. Following the film we will have a discussion with a panel of those involved in the movement (and some featured in the film) that explores the successes of the LGBTQ movement in Israel and what issues remain.
The Jewish Federation is holding this event in partnership with the Israeli Consulate of LA and A Wider Bridge, which aims to build LGBTQ connections with Israel. Our panel of Israeli activists includes Avner Dafni (Director of Israel Gay Youth), Irit Zviely-Efrat (CEO of Hoshen), Iris Sass-Kochavi (a Tehila parent), and Adir Steiner (Pride Coordinator, Municipality of Tel Aviv-Jaffa). All the aforementioned organizations represented are part of the new Alliance of Israeli LGBTQ Educational Organizations (AILO).
Light refreshments will be served.
We are thankful to JQ International, Beth Chayim Chadashim, Congregation Kol Ami, and the Institute for Judaism and Sexual Orientation for the collaboration in putting together this event.
