Portland Event: Bridging Identities: On Being LGBTQ, Jewish and Pro-Israel

A Wider Bridge’s Arthur Slepian will be speaking as part of the series Israel 360: Diverse Perspectives on Israel, Explored in an Atmosphere of Respect.

Portlanders! Join AWB’s Arthur Slepian as he explores the following complex questions about the merging of multiple identities: LGBTQ, Jewish, and Pro-Israel.

  • What has been the progress of the LGBTQ community in Israel, and what challenges remain?
  • How can one successfully engage progressive people with Israel at a time when there is so much antagonism towards Israel on the left?
  • How can the LGBTQ communities of Israel and North America learn from and support one another, especially in the aftermath of our own recent elections?
