Five Centers and Organizations for the Queer Community in Israel

A Wider Bridge is proud to be included on Time Out Israel’s list of local centers and organizations where Israeli and international queers can build a peaceful revolution for a more accepting society.

We know that together we are stronger – and we have more fun. Here we’ve compiled a list of local centers and organizations where Israeli and international queers can build a peaceful revolution for a more accepting society, while also feeling the warm support and love of a much needed greater family.

The LGBT Center
The ever-busy LGBTQ Center of Tel Aviv is not the result of a new trend of “pinking up” the White City: it was founded back in 1983 to fortify and enrich the LGBT community. “Today, more than 6,000 people pass through our doors every week, and we are solidly committed to serving each and every member of our diverse community,” they say. The Center offers a wide range of activities from theater shows and drama workshops to round table talks and group therapy sessions. Their mission: “For as many ways as you can define family, we are here to support. From relationships to parenthood, we guide and connect you throughout your journey.”

A Wider Bridge brings Israeli LGBTQ leaders, activists and artists to the U.S. to talk about their work, and share their stories of hope. “We bring Israeli and American Jewish and LGBTQ community leaders together to learn from each other, to share their best practices and build lasting collaborative relationships.”
