Musician Matt Cohen took part in A Wider Bridge’s LGBTQ Mission to Israel and shares his magic moments from the trip in this newly-released video.

“The term ‘life changing’ I think it’s meaningless because I think we use it all the time, so I was thinking it’s kinda like ‘soul changing’ experience for me to come here,” Matt says. “Just experience and be in places that I’ve learned about, heard about, meeting incredible inspiring people here who are making a difference, or trying to, in a very complex country.”

Through shared experience, participants engage with modern Israeli and LGBTQ life, and learn about both the recent and ancient history of the people, the land and the state of Israel.
