Welcome to our website

WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF A WIDER BRIDGE!

Our goal is for this site to be an online magazine exploring the intersections of Jewish and LGBTQ life in North America, Israel and around the world..  Whether you want the latest news, provocative opinions, information on arts and culture (check out our “Films” area under “Resources”), you will find much of it here.  Browse through our list of Israeli organizations listed under “Partners” to get a sense of the the strength and diversity of Israel’s LGBTQ communities. Take a look at our wide array of past and upcoming Programs, and read about our LGBTQ trips to Israel, including the one coming up this June.  Take some time to explore and let us know what you think.  You can reach us by e-mail at info@awiderbridge.com

A few key points:

THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

We hope you find what’s here valuable and informative, and that you are as excited by the possibilities of this project as we are.  There are so many more areas in which we can provide content and so many ways that we can use this site to strengthen the LGBTQ connections between Israel and North America. We look forward to expanding both the breadth and the depth of the material we provide here.  If you have ideas for new kinds of content we can provide (for example, individuals and organizations telling their stories on video), or if you have something that should be added to one of our sections, please send it our way.    Right now, we have focused our “Resources” section on Arts and Culture, primarily films.  If you have thoughts about other kinds of resources we can be providing on our site, please give us your suggestions.  If you are a writer or an artist, think about creating some material for us.   You can reach us at info@awiderbridge.com

We regret that for now we are only able to provide content in English.  One of our longer term goals is to provide content in both English and Hebrew.
